Live at Leeds Festival 2008 on Friday, 22nd August 2008
The Humour are all about chugga chugga rock played with strutting ego and a confident American accent. Their specialised asymmetric haircuts and teen entertainment orientation set them apart from others on the stage today. James the singer fills centre stage and the band blasts out the rhythms and patterns that have lifted a thousand rock bands out of obscurity over the last 25 years. A share of fame, money and not much critical acclaim are not unrealistic ambitions. "Momentary Moment" and "Robot Dance" stand out as distinctive, infectious tunes and their enthusiasm lifts the crowd into appreciative cheering. I see that in my notes I have scribbled "a lot of candle and not so much cake". But who wants music that makes you fat? Sometimes the sparkle is what the good times need and The Humour are the very boys to provide the sparkle.
