Confidence oozing out of every pore, and the crowd entirely behind them, they launched into their set with gusto and with Williams leading the vocal charge.
. . .while it would be expected that at a concert for a band that have been writing and performing for 21 years the audience would be warmed to them automatically, Nicholas really did have the crowd with him, clapping, waving and singing along at his request.
Rews were just as personable and charming as ever and hit us with a high-octane set that was a perfect demonstration of why people are starting to take notice of them.
“They hit us hard with ‘Heartbeat Away’ and, prowling the stage like caged animals, took no time at all in encouraging and engaging the crowd”
. . . the soft strains of ‘Christ Jesus’ float over us. It’s a powerful song with a striking riff made for an encore. I find myself mesmerized like no other time during the evening. . .
Lovers of the Fu Manchu formula will not be disappointed. Energy, a well thought out structure and guitar riffs a-plenty.
