New Young Pony Club at the Concorde

New Young Pony Club - Brighton Concorde2

Now this is more like it! For whatever reason it's electro-pop that is grabbing my attention at the moment (see also CSS, The Sounds, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip) and New Young Pony Club are its latest charges arriving on the back of recent single The Bomb and the Intel ad jingle and soon-to-be-re-released single Ice Cream. Andy, Thurein and I agreed that down the front was the place to be to watch them at the Concorde, and so it proved to be. Within minutes they had the crowd dancing, vocalist Tahita always out front engaging the fans. What NYPC lacked in tunes they made up for in confidence and energy and by the end of their set we'd jumped around and sweat buckets like never before - well, not for a long time anyway! The two singles were obvious favourites but a couple of other songs also stood out giving hope that the forthcoming Fantastic Playroom album could be the soundtrack to my Summer. The venue stayed open late for an aftershow party with Steve Chaos on the decks, so more drinking and dancing was in order until the wee hours... a top night out!
