Eels, Glasgow O2 Academy 2013


I blogged about an Eels gig seven years ago, and not much has changed: I still love Eels and I hate gigs. Last night’s show was a belter, although if you hadn’t heard the new album you’d be a bit lost: E’s gone for a garagey, three-guitar line-up this time around and the set was heavy on the new stuff (although there was time for some superb covers: Itchycoo Park and Fleetwood Mac’s Oh Well). If you’re seeing them on this tour, just one bit of advice: don’t head out when the house lights go up.
