The Fun Lovin’ Criminals ooze smooth. They’re so cool that you’ll need an overcoat if you stand too close….
However, despite my little rant, I did actually enjoy the show. As they weren’t promoting a new album the songs were all recognisable and sing-alongable to; Scooby Snacks, The Fun Lovin’ Criminal, Smoke ‘Em being some of the more well known ones. The delivery was great, too. Each song would have a little spoken intro, giving the back story of the song, Huey never stopping strumming the strings. And as I said before, if you’re familiar with their style, it was smooth.
They were well received by the crowd, and despite my little issue, I’m glad I got the opportunity to see them after being (albeit part time) a fan for the past twenty years.
Also, it would be wrong of me to not give a shout out to the support band The Milk. A younger, more modern, version of Fun Lovin’ Criminals maybe? I’ll let you be the judge, but I’d definitely go see them again. I found them very polite.
