I was somewhat undecided as to whether to come to this gig or not. Having seen PWEI back in their heyday of the late 80s early 90s, I wasn’t sure what the new line-up would be like with only Graham Crabb surviving from the original band. However Mary Byker is a decent replacement for Clint Mansell, and the other new members seem to fit in well.
The setlist tonight was heavily weighted towards the new album and the later releases of the original band, but we did get Wise Up Sucker, Preaching to the Perverted, and There is No Love Between Us Anymore to keep the back catalogue in our minds, before they finished off with the Prodigy collaboration, Their Law.
A thoroughly good evening, and the new line-up did the name of Pop Will Eat Itself proud.
