mp3: The Duke Spirit – This Ship Was Built To Last

This show taught me a lesson – never see a band play at a corporate event and be completely put off by their performance. Explanation – I saw UK band The Duke Spirit play a Ray Bans launch party a couple of years back and they sucked so I’ve ignored them since then. A mistake it would seem as last night they were amazing live (although I’m still not 100% sold as to whether I’d enjoy a whole album), newer material fitting in seamlessly with old greats like ‘Love is An Unfamiliar Name’. The gig was a much coveted support slot for American favourites Silversun Pickups at one of the bigger venues in Austin. They they look set to conquer America.

For Fans Of: Howling Bells, Kings Of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
