Scott and Charlene’s Wedding
Rough Trade East, London

It’s refreshing to see artists properly grounded, acting starstruck rather than acting the star. They’re not especially wise, they’re certainly not rocket scientists and the last time I looked Bono hadn’t cured cancer. So when Craig Dermody comes out, he looks genuinely stoked to be in Rough Trade, which is a seriously long way from his Melbourne hometown and no shabby distance from his current New York residence. And the delight in playing here permeates the music, which – understandably for an instore – focused on the excellent new album Any Port In A Storm. Kicking off with ‘Spring Street’, he and his bandmates click into a New York groove, with songs like ‘Downtown’ and ‘Fakin’ NYC’ reminding you at various times of the Velvet Underground, the Feelies and Television, while ‘Lesbian Wife’ and ‘Jackie Boy’ are instant classics for anyone into jangly pop. Dermody’s voice sounds pretty good live too, a bit less monotone than on record, and full of passion and humour. They’re just a band, making the same sort of music that bands before them have made, but there’s something very likeable both about them and their music; go to them for entertainment rather than to mend your broken leg and you'll be just fine.
