The intro was “This Worm’s For Ennio”, but instead of linking it to “Beg For It”, like in the album with the same title, they continued with “Moonshine”. And all hell broke loose from that moment on. Things only calmed down for a few minutes on the first song of the encore, the ballad “Run To Your Mama”.
As usual, they skipped the two albums that don’t match their current sound (“Thank You (For Letting Us Be Ourselve)” and “No Regrets”) and picked one from “Bad Sneakers And A Piña Colada” – my all-time favorite “Liberation”. And also as usual, “We Don’t Celebrate Sundays” ended the show, right after they introduced their new song “Glue”, which had been released just a few days before (and yet, people already knew how to sing along the chorus. Cool!).
Their power is undescribable and apparently endless – five gigs I’ve seen so far and every single time I feel like I was in the middle of a hurricane. I love their entire discography (yes, even those two I mentioned before), but if one day that changes (unlikely, but you never know), as long as HCSS keep sending these jolts of energy whenever they play live, you can be sure I’ll be there, at the front row.
