Behind Green Lights - Manchester Night & Day - 11.5.05

The taut, angular chords of opener "I Lack Insight" coupled with the urgency in frontman Aaron Atkinson's voice are sufficient to grab the attention of a crowd that appears to be here predominantly for bands later on the bill.

There's a sense of urgency and vibrancy running though the set, although "Trample" has more of a softer type opening before ending in the familiar harder, guitar blast.

They will probably start to hate the "Franz Ferdinand" connections that people will inevitably make.  Though not meant in a derogatory manner, as in blatantly copying the song structure, they do have an element of truth in them.

Perhaps it might be better to say they have a batch of songs that could be on the NEXT FF album.
