Prolonged adolescence 4eva!
Ignore this review and just see ’em hey. I was semi-into 3 songs pre-show, but live it’s a whole new beaster bunny, dropping 2 minute, chocolate-coated, frivolity-gut-punches. Live, it’s a mess of ripped jeans, long hair and zooper doopers. Live, it’s a punk gig with angst replaced by happy-go-lucky teenage kicks.
Also, it isn’t deja vu, that’s just a different song with the same start middle and end. Don’t fix what ain’t broke.
Also, Also, BKC are as effective at nullifying cynicism as a magna-doodle is at erasing that magnet magic.
-the introductions to songs emphasised their simplicity. This song’s about virginity, this song’s about having fun, this song’s about Marissa from the OC, this song’s about having sex with a slut on the beach – and sure enough, that’s exactly what the songs were about.
-the fostering of crowd surfing addictions was really entertaining. BKC don’t just condone, but endorse a constant ebb and flow of people on stage, people off stage, people in the crowd, people on the crowd, people above the crowd. There was this benny-hill style action going on between security guards and regular offenders to which BKC performed a cover of Yakkity Sax (not really). I’m pretty sure their band manager crowd surfed at one stage? If it wasn’t their manager, than who invited the suit? Amiright?
-i bought a cool t-shirt
-i got an indian kebab before the show and the naan bread was a bit stale
I’m not sure how fleeting it all is, but i don’t think they care so why should i? It’s just fun; childish, simple, joyfully naive, incredible fun.
