The Orwells @ The Fleece, Bristol. 21.11.14.
The Orwells’ last show in Bristol was the classic sellout Thekla bash. I spent most of the night desperately trying to stay aloft to tracks like ‘Mallrats’ and ‘Halloween All Year’, now they’re set to return to the bigger, bulkier Fleece.
This time though, the Illinois five-piece come with the brilliant second album ‘Disgraceland’. Packed with classic bright punk guitars and the debauched voice of Mario Cuomo, the album has taken their profile a level higher.
This is the kind of show that will be ten times better with a few pints on board, so let’s get rowdy. Don’t hang around in getting a ticket though, they’re said to be flying out. It’s set to be nothing less than their last visit, messy, euphoric and bombast.
