PETER, BJORN AND JOHN (London Old Blue Last, 03/02/11)

Jet-lagged and clearly forced into it against their will, it's odd that Peter, Bjorn and John's intimate OBL show was as good as it was- perversely, it appears a chronic lack of sleep lends them a ferocious dynamism they don't normally have. Their new material sounds fantastic - high-quality, no-nonsense indie rock with hints of afrobeat and hair metal, and not even the non-appearance of "Young Folks" could detract from an excellent performance.
