While the band confessed their nerves for the opening night of their sold out tour, they didn’t show them on stage. Whether they were fueled by alcohol, enthusiasm or natural ability didn’t matter much as they flogged the crowd and the stage for everything it was worth.
But it was certainly true that the classics from their debut album got the biggest reception as Born Young And Free, Is It Horrible? and Why Do You Hate Me? all threatened to blow the roof off – although in a rare moment of calm the rendition of Captivate Me could almost have threatened to be beautiful.
With a sold out summer tour and a second one arranged for October, this is a band who live life in the fast lane and that translates to the energy of their shows that reached a crescendo after Becca was handed a Toon top with Marmozets proudly blazoned across the back.
She finished the night in style, wearing the shirt until the bitter end while bounding into the crowd for a long overdue stage dive. Never mind the earlier confession that she still lives with her parents or the lights threatening to take her head off, this is rock and roll and this is what the band excel at.
