Review: John Hyde

WITH the swagger of the Gallaghers and the sound of The Jam, The Enemy are well-equipped for greatness.

Never mind they're barely old enough to remember either, this is a band with the style and substance to be stars.

Their 50-minute stint at indigo2 was a barn-storming, relentless romp through their debut album, We'll Live and Die in These Towns, with one new song thrown in for good measure.

From the moment they appeared on stage, the energy was apparent, as they ripped into signature tune Away From Here.

The pace hardly eased as tracks like Pressure, Aggro and the brilliant Had Enough came and went in a flash.

The mood was calmed with the beautiful Happy Birthday, Jane and an acoustic We'll Live and Die in These Towns.

They may call themselves The Enemy, but this cracking four-piece will have made only friends through this appearance.
