The Temperance Movement – Leeds Met - 28 April 2014
Occasionally you are lucky enough to catch a gig that is very special, a night where a band are on top form and clearly destined for great things. Tonight was one of those nights from the first few bars of Ain’t No Telling I was hooked, singer Phil Campbell strutted across the stage like a very over excited Mick Jagger with a great rock n roll voice.
This band have some light and shade in their songs, great jump around, sing along songs like Take it Back and Only Friend are complimented by more reserved, but equally engaging songs like Smouldering and the haunting Chinese Lanterns. The new songs dropped into the set also seemed up to this high standard.
Know for Sure brought the main set to an end before the band were brought back to the stage by the chanting of the Leeds crowd. We were then treated to a great rendition of Pride before the hectic Midnight Black brought the evening to a close.
A great show and, a great band, that must be destined for very big things.
