Crowd love it

WHEN drummer Steve Morrison paced on to the deep purple stage already shirtless, with his arms thrust in the air, he made it clear that the band did not intend to muck about this time.

The Dundee foursome had been forced to cancel their show last October due to the alcohol-fuelled misdemeanours of their lead singer.

But Kyle Falconer did more than turn up for this Saturday's gig. He and bassist Keiren Webster kept the crowd spinning for the whole set. And they were loving it.

They charged through the much-loved 2007 debut album Hats Off to the Buskers. Their enthusiasm can only have been doubled by the young crowd, who clearly adored and knew every word to each song.

The Don is almost a tribute to loitering – lyrics focused on hanging around shops and stealing milk bottles. But the more laid-back Face for The Radio proved the band isn't restricted to a guitar-filled homage to cheeky teenagers – they could pull off an acoustic harmony too.

The chant of the evening was "The View are on fire!" and, luckily, with their new album Which Bitch? out next month, it looks like they are.
