View Back In Focus

This time last year, after months of relentless touring and their kid-in-a-sweetshop approach to the temptations of the road, The View looked a little hazy.

But this gig, the first of a nine-date headlining tour to try out new material for their second album, saw them firing on all four cylinders.

The Dundee outfit opened with the angular, edgy shapes of the new song Five Rebeccas, with frontman Kyle Falconer, clearly relishing the intimate setting of the Liquid Rooms.

"This is the first time we've ever played this," announced guitarist Pete Reilly before the jangling into of One-Off Pretender, a sharp Clash inspired tune that promises much for the next album.

And by the time the set climaxed with the double header of Same Jeans and Superstar Tradesman, the lads had done enough to get fans very excited for what lies ahead in 2008.
