Not the best of their gigs Ive been to but they are still head and shoulders above so many bands that have "made it", especially live. The Platform is a tiny venue and makes it very intimate, especially as the guys were wondering around the pub before and after the performance.
They also showcased a couple of new songs. Both great (I love the storytelling nature of their songs), one about how they're not going to change "into David Gray" just for the record companies.
Highlight was his banter with a 16 year old girl at the front who was texting on her mobile and he made up a song on the spot taking the mick.
The friends we went with are now Ezio converts (and even bought a CD afterwards) despite being avid techno fans!!!
