Fun Lovin' Criminals
The reception by the crowd as Huey, Fast and Leicester-born drummer Mark Reid (aka Frank the Rhythm Man) took to the stage gave an indication of their expectation, and it was repaid as the trio mixed tracks from their new LP – Welcome To Poppy's – with old favourites.
Of the new songs, Too Hot and the catchy Lost It All stood out, while the likes of Smoke 'Em, Loco, King Of New York and Scooby Snacks were all greeted with enthusiasm by the sell-out crowd.
Huey really is the King of Cool, and his onstage persona is identical to the laid-back image he portrays in the band's videos.
The tempo changed several times during the evening, as was to be expected from the New York group which has such an eclectic range of songs.

And with Fast turning his hand to the bass, the trumpet, keyboards and vocals, the Criminals were on form.
The songs alternated between styles such as lounge-music, punk and pure rock 'n' roll – and all were carried off brilliantly.
