Live review of The Faint & Sunshine at the Concorde 2 in Brighton on Wednesday 15th of September
By Nathan Westley
The Faint are on a whistle stop UK tour to promote their new album
"Wet from Birth" and it perhaps makes perfect sense for them
to stop off for a show in Brighton along with Label mates Sunshine.
Many people are often sceptical of bands which care to put effort into
The Faint's music might not be as "now" nor as fashionable
as they were a few years ago, but there is no denying that they are
a great live act. They look comfortable on stage tonight and there stage
presence could easily fill a stadium or an arena.
But the main reason anyone goes to see the gig is for the music, we are treated to classic material from previous album "Danse Macabre" like Agenda Suicide and Your Retro Career Melted, as well as new songs and a cover of the Talking heads song Psycho Killer.
There new material isn't a massive departure from there previous songs
but this isn't necessary a problem as The Faint have found their niche.
