And now, a review of The Thrills and The Zutons, at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow, on Friday, 20th June, 2003.

And now, with all the keywords exhausted, on with the review....

I saw this very line-up the last time they played at King Tut's on the 6th of March, a mere week after being captivated by their debut single, Santa Cruz (You're Not That Far).

The support were called The Zutons, and for all we knew, they could be terrible. Fortunately they were excellent, as were the headliners.

As for last night, the excitement was palpable, and we were right at the front.

[As I'm writing this, I realise that I have absolutely no talent for music journalism. I can't really review a band's performance, or their songs. Sufficed to say, they were both absolutely excellent. I had an amazing time, and the two songs I had in my head on leaving were Rumblin' Ramblin' by The Zutons, and Big Sur by The Thrills. And I got setlists. And how. To see them in all their papery glory, click here.]




The Zutons set-list (click for a larger version). In case it's unclear, the songs were:

  • Long Time Comin
  • Nobody Loves Me
  • Havana Gang Brawl
  • Creepin an a Crawlin
  • Remember Me
  • Confusion
  • Rumblin Ramblin
  • Zuton Fever

(The E's and A's stand for "Electric" and "Acoustic" respectively.)


For their main set, The Thrills played:

  • Tell Me Something I Don't Know
  • Your Love Is Like Las Vegas
  • Big Sur
  • Till The Tide Creeps In
  • Say It Ain't So
  • Old Friends
  • One Horse Town
  • Corey Haim
  • Down By The River
  • Santa Cruz

And, for their encore:

  • Don't Steal Our Sun
  • Just Travelling Through

Deviating from Chas n Dave and returning to the subject of music, have you heard "White Lines" by Duran Duran? I suggest that this actually is the greatest remix of a tune EVER

Stuart, it doesn't look like they have much of a fan base up here, but their appropriately-naff website suggests that, if you head down to Morecambe in mid-July, you're sure to be entertained.

I don't suppose you would know when Chas n' Dave are hitting Glasgow next? You may mock but back in '93 myself and a few close friends drunk large quantities of Newcastle Brown, actually paid to see these cockney twats and spoilt it for everyone by violently heckling. Needless to say we were ejected from the premises eventually but it was to be expected . Mind you, I do have a friend who actually likes Chas n' Dave and was more than happy to recieve a burnt compilation of their classics for his 27th birthday.
