If you took a stroll into East London’s Troxy on Saturday night you may have found yourself dashing from person to person frantically asking “Who is that tall leather clad figure emerging from the fog and colorful lighting singing songs about love, loss and clarity of eyesight in a distinctly raw neo-psychedlic fashion?”

They probably told you “LOL Faris Rotter of The Horrors m8 how could you have gotten that far in the venue without knowing, wut is rong wit u. PLZ LEAVE ME ALONE”…Although we were all a little overly immersed in the music on Saturday so frantic conversations and dashing probably didn’t take place much to be fair. The fire alarm even went off and the crowd either were just too busy giving their complete attention to the beauty that was emiting from the speakers or totally shrugged it off, risking what could have been legit 999 call to watch lads from Southend with interesting names taking garage rock songs on shoegaze tangents ….and who could blame them?


Playing modern Horrors versions of classic Horrors tracks! You can’t purchase that on iTunes! Even the fire would’ve stopped to have a gander and take a few photos of their cool lighting and haircuts. Thankfully there were no disasters and the band did a super long encore with extended versions of Lluminous gems galore.
