The first time this reviewer saw Canterbury live was two years ago at a small venue in London town and approximately 20 people turned up – with this record that should all change, easily. The best songs here are still the ones we first heard, ‘Set You Right’ and ‘Friends? We’re More Like A Gang’, but the other nine tracks on ‘Thank You’ more than exceed what could have been taken as beginner’s luck. Opener ‘Peace + Quiet’ kicks in like ‘I’-era Billy Talent and from that moment on it’s hard to find fault with the record. It’s worth keeping an eye on this promising five-piece.
There's been some actual news this week. The Movielifereformed, Fightstarreturned from hiatus, and then there was Emoji Artworks. But sadly, today is our last #notthenews round-up of 2014. Try to hold back those tears while we recap all of this week's nonsense.
