Talk Taxis / GoodBooks / The Maccabees – Live gig review by Rob Lowe

The Maccabees are a band that are, well… down right cool. Playing to a sold out crowd of crazy 16 year olds, and with anthems as big as “Latchmere”, a song completely written about a new wave machine at the aforementioned place, the night at the Carling Academy 2 was going to be all about fun.

I always feel sorry for support bands at gigs as they are usually ignored and just play out their set for the fun of it. ‘Talk Taxis’ had a different idea and certainly show signs of promise. Their lead singer has a voice that is quite distinct and made even the annoying 16 year old girls take notice. The music seems derived from a ska nature and certainly isn’t lost against the singers vocals. Next up were Goodbooks who have been strenuously touring the country, previously with Hot Club De Paris. These boys are pop, simply put; they play funky keyboard driven indie which is pleasant and enjoyable. The band played a flawless set and even verse into one of The Maccabees songs mid way through which the crowd seem to enjoy.

Then came the main event and with the entrance of the band came the quick rush forward of people and the general over excitement that this band can muster in you. The music is so catchy and upbeat that you just simply cannot stand still, and straight away the whole crowd was bouncing, to such an extent that it made the floor move. If the crowd weren’t excited enough the band played “Latchmere” early on and even they seemed surprised by the response from the crowd. Playing a variety of new songs mixed in with well known singles of “X-ray”, “Precious Time” and “Bicycles”, the tempo never stopped right the way through to the end. The lead singer then announced that they would be going off stage to get a drink and rest before returning to finish off. Apparently they weren’t being arrogant they were just really tired. Either way they returned to finish “First Love”, again to more stomping 16 year olds. Overall the night was pretty awesome and The Maccabees live are impressive. With a faithful crowd of, yep you guessed it, 16 year olds, I am sure they will go far.
