Little Fish @ Proud

Little fishes grow up. They show up for the fist time as rough diamonds. Then, after two, three, four times you have seen them, they display all their rage, finally perfectly channelled like a well-oiled machine.
When I saw Little Fish for the first time, few months ago at Barfly, I’ve been impressed by the fury and anger of their performance; now, still in Camden, at Proud though, that anger transformed itself in pure energy, smooth and powerful.
Juju and Nez, once again accompanied by the Hammond of Ben, celebrate the great success of debut album ‘Baffled and Beat’ headlining a long evening of indie and rock’n’roll.
There’s no warm up: the “la-la-la-la’s” of ‘Baffled’ introduce the audience straight away to the catchy pounding ‘Darling Dear’, the song that brought this band to their well-deserved fame.
Juju is (as usual) unstoppable and uncontrollable while on stage screams ‘Am I crazy?’, and the unexpected cover of Weezer makes the gig something special.
Summer single ‘Whiplash’ live makes up the lack of hook of the album version, while the finale is a crescendo of intensity with ‘Die Young’ and ‘Innuendo’.
Overall, a great performance by a band that definitely is one to watch for the future.
