Norwich UEA Review
DOVES are without doubt one of Britain’s best bands – so why are they still playing relatively small venues?
I shouldn’t complain too much. I got to see them up close at the UEA at Norwich last night. It was a great gig – brilliant songs, brilliant musicians and a thrilling performance.
If a band can get away with playing a song as great and rabble-rousing as Pounding as early as fourth or fifth song in the set, they must be good.
So why aren’t they way of out of this league? Why aren’t they at least on the arena tour? I can only guess it’s in the presentation. They’ve never been the most attention seeking of bands, or the most photogenic. There wasn’t a lot of banter at the gig – just head down and get on with it.
