Live Xcerpts


LISTENING to The Xcerts' rough and ready debut album In The Cold Wind We Smile, you could tell that the Scot rockers would have been taking to the road.
Because in a studio setting, the energy and enthusiasm of their Idlewild-meets-Snow Patrol rock was barely restrained.
Whereas at the famed King Tut's venue, the group can let it all out, with tracks like Aberdeen 1987 taking on an extra emotional edge.
The quibbles of their LP remain, such as the need for a little polish - but I imagine if you remedied them you'd be taking out the very charm of The Xcerts.
