Bubbles They Bounce

01Nov08

A long awaited trip to see the mighty mighty Hot Chip at the Cambridge Corn Exchange. I was  expecting great things having seen them last year and thankfully I was disappointed.

The evening started off with a set from Max Tundra who divided the early arrivers with his baffling (in a good way) set of multi-instrument electronica which included a rather wonderful version of ‘What Time Is Love’ and finished with the ‘b-side’ to his latest single, ‘So Long, Farewell’. Additionally extra points are awarded to Max for his outfit and for his somewhat idiosyncratic dancing.

Hot Chip followed and after a somewhat underwhelming start to the set (more to do with the quality of the sound rather than performance) put in some sterling work drawing from all three albums and peaking (of course) with ‘Over & Over’. Highlight for me was the encore which included the super fine ‘Playboy’, Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and ended with the wonderful ‘In The Privacy Of Our Love’.
