The Feeling have Amprock sewn up

ALL The Young wrap up their UK tour with a visit to Bedford Esquires tomorrow, and these road-hardy players know how to put on a good show – they’ve honed their craft at gigs with big players including Hard Fi, Kaiser Chiefs and the Mozza.

The Stoke-on-Trent dwellers also worked with GGGarth Richardson on their debut opus.

For those not in the know, he’s the classy Canadian responsible for knob-twiddling on releases by the Chilis, Biffy Clyro, Rage Agains the Machine and Skunk Anansie.

In fact, he recorded Skin and Co right here in the new city.

Anyway, the album itself has been classed as possessing ‘the kind of fist-pumping fodder that festival crowds were custom built for.’

Some might say it is a rouser...

Morrissey, commenting on The Young Ones going all out on the live front at Proud Galleries was compelled to remark “I love reminded me of the early Smiths days.”

If you’ve got a motor, use it to visit Ampthill tomorrow evening, when Brit-award nominees The Feeling will be leading the charge at the annual Amprock Festival.

The band have attacked the singles chart time and again with poppy numbers including Fill My Little World, Sewn and Love It When You Call.

The Feeling follow previous headliners Pauline Black from The Specials and the Lightning Seeds.

Support this time around will be coming from O’Casan, As We Climb and Singing 4 Chips.
