Cargo’s neat - it’s small capacity, in east London and under a tunnel. All good.
And Kid Carpet’s pretty good as well - here as a support act, but getting one of the best receptions I’ve seen in a while. He does the whole transition from fake-shambolic to total crowd control without ever shedding his charm. I guess I heard ‘Jump’ back when John Peel was playing it, so it’s only really taken me a couple of years to get up to speed there.
While Electric Six aren’t just a great live rock band backed by a flock of danceable, culturally-aware hits and fronted by a creepy shouting staring man, that’s certainly where their strengths lie.
They’re at least as much fun as you’d expect.
(And I guess Ha Ha Hammersmith was pretty good too.)
