…my dislike of Hue and Cry singer Pat Kane’s butchering of “The Man With the Child in His Eyes”, specifically the na-na-na-na-na’s, reminded me of this:
I mentioned some time ago that I first saw Kaiser Chiefs on the 2005 NME Awards Tour where they were bottom of the bill, below Bloc Party, The Futureheads, and The Killers.
Until that night I’d been totally unimpressed by everything I’d heard from them. But that night they completely blew me away, kicking their set off with a blistering rendition of this, and managed to utterly upstage all the acts that came after them.
That is all.
