Speaking of beyond killer. Future of the Left put on the best set of the whole day. I’ve caught them three times since October and they get better every single time. To be fair, this time I had the advantage of actually knowing the songs on their two releases”¦which thus far don’t hold up for me as well as their live show, but I’m willing to try again. Andy Falkous looked as pissed off and fired up as Mica Levi looked bored and in the middle of the set, Brian King from Japandroids pushed his way past me to park himself in front of the monitor and learn from the masters. The screaming guitars (and outright screaming) gives the more subdued vocals an even stronger punch (especially when the lyric is something like, “Colin was a pussy, a very pretty pussy.”) I’m also finally able to see Future of the Left without trying to make the McLusky comparisons. I’ve never seen them, I accept this and with Future of the Left letting loose fury like this, it doesn’t matter. [TheYellowStereo.com]
