An important act of the ’80s and early ’90s, That Petrol Emotion were a Northern Ireland-via-London band whose varied alternative rock sound developed on post-punk and pointed towards the poppier, dance-influenced grooves of the Madchester scene. The group played a few reunion gigs in the last decade, including an All Tomorrow's Parties festival. Now four fifths of the original TPE are back, and playing new material as The Everlasting Yeah. This Roundhouse studio show is their first London headline gig, though footage of a support slot played at 229 last year (now on YouTube) suggests that the members have kept up their choppy, Television-influenced guitar work and combine it here with straight ahead rock ’n’ roll rhythms and super simple lyrics. They could be in danger of churning out reliable but drossy retro-rock, but fans are evidently clamouring to hear the new music for themselves.
