And so, stirring echoes of Dodgy and Johnny Flynn as they go (and boy do they go!), TT crack on, injecting little needed imagination or variety into their blistering and suitably billed set.
I don’t think that anybody cares about the inaudible, vocally mumbled bridge of banter between songs either, which is a shame, because whether they know it or not, they’ve just been informed that Frightened Rabbit, the second support act, won’t be playing due to their late arrival.
And despite the noticeably responsive crowd not going into hyper drive upon the news that CDs (which should sell if there is any justice) are for sale, TT launch into their 4th song with the addition of a 4th guitarist (a friend who couldn’t afford a ticket) who honestly takes the band onto a new, well seasoned sounding level.
My failure to spot any sing-along classics or future anthems counts for nothing I feel, because TT prove their worth as they superfluously provide tonight’s support act to the mighty Gomez. Bravo TT bravo... 2010 should be ace!
TT are Luke Clark – (Vocals, Lyrics, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar), Danny Marley – (Electric Guitar, Backing Vocals, Lyrics, Harmonica, Keys), Mart Law - (Bass Guitar, Keys), Paul Jones – (Drums and Percussion).
