Live Review: FEET – London


Camden Assembly, London, 22nd October 2019

Do you ever discover a band and after listening to a few tracks they immediately become one of your favourite bands? That’s what happened to me when I first listened to FEET’s Ad Blue

Whether it’s the groovy bass lines, addictive guitar melodies or clever anecdotal lyrics, there’s something about their sound that I just can’t get enough of, I’m officially hooked! So when I got the opportunity to see them play their sold out show at London’s Camden Assembly, I jumped at the chance. 

Entering the already packed venue, I had walked in just as support band The Honkies started to play.

The Honkies

Instantly I was hit with a grinding wonky rock melody, intrinsic drum beats and soulful vocals. Everybody was moving and nodding along to the sound they were producing, myself included. Having never listened to music like theirs before, I’m curious to see what else the five-piece have up their sleeves – I’m definitely a fan. 

Having been warmed up by The Honkies, it was clear the crowd were excited to see FEET as the level of chatter had increased considerably since before the support. I think the recent release of their debut album What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham and the anticipation for them to play both old and new tracks may have contributed to the evident buzz throughout the venue. With a short intro jam between Callum, Harry, Oli & Ben, singer George sauntered onto the stage, launching into English Weather

As if with the flick of a switch, the whole crowd transformed into gig ‘beast mode’: chanting loudly, dancing, pointing and just having a good time all round, creating a sweaty atmosphere in the process. Whether it was the Ian Brown-esque stage presence of singer George during Good Richard’s Crash Landing, the ferocious energy of drummer Ben throughout the set or the intense passion exuding from the gig goers, FEET knew how to create a fine tuned set list to keep every single person in the room hooked on them for the 50 minutes they were on stage.

Ending with frantic and loud fan favourite Outer Rim, the band gave all the energy they could muster to hook the whole audience into a frenzy for one last round of moshing and chanting. 

FEET may have only recently appeared on my radar in the last few months, but they’re a band that will stay one of my favourites for a very long time. Based on their performance at Camden Assembly, I’m of the opinion they will do great things and this is only the start for such a fresh talented band.
