black kids at the ica
If you haven't heard of Black Kids, you have... now.
And if you haven't heard them... you should, umm, now.
Saw them last night at the ICA in London. They rock. Literally. The lead singer, Reggie Youngblood (what a great name) is a real presence on stage and sounds like Rob Smith from The Cure with a bit of Bloc Party thrown in.
With three on the mic and a lot of energy, there's definite moments of The Go! Team too. This concludes my analysis. I'm that cool and probably don't know what I'm talking about.
Black Kids were supported by Sheffield folk rock duo Slow Club. Also excellent. The girl was amazing. Reminded me of Meg White as she sung her lungs out whilst expertly beating the daylights out of a wooden chair. Nice.
