Friday night saw Detroit's Electric Six return to the UEA, almost a year since their last visit. With new material not due until next year, it was the debut album Fire that took centre stage for the evening and, by playing almost the entire tracklist from the album, the band did not disappoint the near capacity crowd.
Electric Six delivered a sonic onslaught, with no let-up for the audience, ensuring that a frenzied atmosphere took over the venue. They provided a near perfect interpretation of the record, showcasing their unique sound.
Singer Dick Valentine took to the stage clutching a baguette that remained with him for most of the set, as he led the band through songs such as She's White and Naked Pictures of your Mother.
His on-stage antics could not help but raise a smile, as he indulged in exercise routines and spontaneous waving to the crowd.
Highlights of the evening included the debut single Danger! High Voltage, Dance Commander, and the download-only single Vibrator, which shows that the band are embracing the mp3 market.

All in all, an excellent night's entertainment.
