10 Years of Turin Brakes

1999 saw the first release from the London based acoustic-folkies Turin Brakes. They put together a 10th anniversary concert at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane to celebrate after being off the road for a while. The set started with a nervous Olly and Gale supported by Eddy on base, running through some acoustic numbers including some new tracks.

The boys were then joined by an 8-piece female choir before taking an ice-cream break!

They returned with amplifiers turned up and were joined by drummer Rob and Phil on keyboards.

The set reminded us that the boys have put out some great songs over their 10 yrs incl; Future Boy, Painkiller, Average Man, 72, Underdog, Feeling Oblivion and our favourite Long Distance. They also did covers of Chris Isaaks' Wicked Game and Neil Young's Everybody Knows this is Nowhere.

You can view some snippets of the concert here.

The support Mike Rosenthal(?) was great too but we can't find any info on him...
