The East Anglian Daily Times has posted a good review of last night’s UEA show:
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.
NME.com has uploaded some excellent photos of Saturday’s Brixton show. There are also some pictures of the soundcheck and of the NME competition winners that were let in for the soundcheck. To view the pictures, click here.

This is Nottingham have reviewed last night’s Rock City show:
At times, it seemed as if everyone in the room was lost in their own private world: concentrating on the exquisitely played material, without letting their faces give anything away. And then occasionally, an anthem like Black And White Town or Pounding would punch through: breaking the spell, and sending hands flying skywards.
A four-song encore climaxed with There Goes The Fear, whose coda had the whole band bashing out funky percussion rhythms, their regular instruments abandoned.
