Music fans are not immune to charms of The Vaccines

 

Young fans meet Pete Robertson Freddie Cowan Justin Young and Arni Arnason of The VaccinesYoung fans meet Pete Robertson Freddie Cowan Justin Young and Arni Arnason of The VaccinesHundreds of music fans made a last-minute dash to Marlborough on Saturday to enjoy an intimate set by indie rock band The Vaccines.

The band performed at Azuza to promote their new album English Graffiti, and signed copies of the album for fans at neighbouring record store Sound Knowledge, which organised the gig.

The event was only announced on Thursday afternoon, but such is the following of the band – especially among younger music-lovers – that there were never any doubts the 6pm performance would be well-attended.

In the event, a quiet acoustic set lasting 25 minutes was delivered by frontman Justin Young, while bandmates Árni Árnason, Pete Robertson and Freddie Cowan watched from the side of the stage.

In fact the six-song set was so quiet that many fans outside the venue did not realise the performance – which included new tracks Denial and Want You So Bad – had begun, while others strained to hear the music over the excited chatter.

"It’s amazing you all came out at such short notice,” Young told the crowd. “You ordered The Vaccines and got a pub singer.” He then led fans in a singalong of two of the band’s best-known hits, If You Wanna and Wetsuit.

Justin Young of The Vaccines performs an intimate acoustic set at AzuzaJustin Young of The Vaccines performs an intimate acoustic set at AzuzaEnglish Graffiti is the band’s third studio album. It follows the debut  What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?, which was the best selling debut album of 2011, and The Vaccines Come of Age, which entered the UK album chart at Number 1.

The concert was one of a regular series hosted by Sound Knowledge at Azuza. The next, on Sunday, July 5 at 4.30pm is a performance by indie folk singer-songwriter Lucy Rose, to support the release of her new album, Work It Out.

Lucy, who has also collaborated with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Manic Street Preachers, last appeared in Marlborough back in 2012 to perform tracks from her debut album Like I Used To, which went on to chart in the top 15 and from which she released six singles including Middle of the Bed and Shiver.

The concert is free to attend for those who buy a copy of the album. For more details, log on to the Sound Knowledge Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/Sound-Knowledge/108109829223506
