Last friday a bristling Gov hosted one of the biggest Australian rock groups in recent years, the illustrious You Am I.
To kick things off early in the night, the fast-rising and decidedly smooth Delta Riggs blazed through a set. After posting online hours earlier how excited they were to support their childhood heroes, their excitement on stage was evident. Their gristly yet eloquently timed build up of intensive music was welcomed by absolutely everyone, before the group vacated the stage for the main act.
In a quirky situation, You Am I actually began to play only hours after releasing their latest album, Porridge and Hotsauce. Because of this, even the most die hard You Am I fans could be forgiven for not knowing and singing each new song with the fervor of the classics. Regardless of this, each and every fan gave 100% into becoming involved in the (great) new material, resulting in a brilliant start to the set. A great mix of tracks continued spanning from albums such as Sound As Ever (1993) and Hourly Daily (1996), through to their recent releases.
A special rendition of Heavy Heart was definitely a highlight. Having been larger than life for the whole show, lead singer Tim Rogers exclaimed how it was Courtney Barnett's cover which got him to "like the song again". The audience were perhaps more in tune to the studio recording of the track, belting out the lyrics before Tim could perform the cut-back version.
As the night continued to build, audience members lapped up every bit of stage banter Tim had to dish out, eagerly anticipating and getting around each memorable and poignant song as it came. Purple Sneakers and the infamous Berlin Chair ensured an energetic end to an absolutely brilliant night; no punter leaving without a sense of awe at the truly brilliant Australian band who have so much to offer all audiences.
