Broken Social Scene at HMV Forum London

If there is one thing you can count on with a Broken Social Scene gig is that you'll be guaranteed to have a good time, even if you've not heard any of their materials (like half the crowd, for shame people!).

Opening with World Sick from their new album Forgiveness Rock Record, BSS sludged through a slew of new and old favourites including 7/4 (Shoreline), Fire Eye'd Boy, Sweetest Kill and my absolute favourite (and crowd pleaser) Superconnected.

Gutted that they didn't play KC Accidental, Almost Crimes, Shampoo Suicide and Major Label Debut, but there is only so much time for old materials. Lisa may not be held in highly like Emily, Amy or Leslie, but completely held her own with All to All. Also joining the core members of BSS were Andrew Whiteman of Apostle of Hustle and Charles Spearin.

An absolute epic gig.
