After, 20 minutes, WE was ready to hit the stage as the lights went down and the recorded intro, Lucid began. After 2 minutes of recording the band pick up the number and the volume increases and the strobe lights blow the audience away.. The band jumps straight into the slide guitar boogie, "Lightyears Ahead". The next four songs are also off the new Smugglers CD and they sound great live. The crowd is really flying with the band after the Norwegian hit single, "Catch Electrique". One of only tracks off Dinosauric Futurobic, "Jinxed" is next. This has a great heavy riff. Now the band takes it down and out into space a bit with their classic "Wooferwheels"... with no pause, the band slams into the very heavy "Livin'the Lore". Three more tracks from Smugglers, including the latest single, "Cosmic Biker Rock and Roll" and the amazing title track. The band end the main set with the 15 minute long Hawkwind inspired, "Freak Capital of the Universe"! The crowd very much want more rock and roll so the band come back out a perform a great version (with a little jamming and band introductions) of "Cherry Red" by the Groundhogs. Although some of us are yelling for "1971", the band is not up for playing it and ends the show with "Carefree"… It looked like they might come out for another song but then the house music came on and it was over…. WE are an amazing live band and if you missed the show don't miss the next one. The band will be back in Denmark in the fall!
