SEAN ATKINS A far-from-packed Waterfront greeted Cornershop as they embarked on a UK tour to promote new album Handcream For A Generation. But what frontman Tjinder Singh described as “a cosy audience” was certainly appreciative.

Cornershop combine Asian instruments and styles with a Western and rather Britpop sound.
But there are so many other influences, it leaves Cornershop beyond comparisons. They are clever, inventive and they rock.
The band remain best known for massive 1998 hit Brimful of Asha, and the live version did not disappoint. It was a powerful performance of a charming pop song.

For many fans, Brimful of Asha would have been their introduction to Cornershop.
Critical acclaim has welcomed Handcream For A Generation, and the audience reaction to the new material was also positive. The strangely-titled but irresistibly-catchy Staging The Plaguing of the Raised Platform was a highlight.
Cornershop have been fairly quiet since Brimful of Asha, but this performance proved they still have so much to offer.
