These unbelievably influential legends of US garage rock reunited in 2007, four decades after they retired from the music business, and played their first British show ever the next year. They’ve only popped back across the pond a couple of times since, so this is a rare chance to catch them as they crank out their fearsome originals (‘Strychnine’, ‘Psycho’, ‘The Witch’ and some hectic new songs) and cover versions (including their definitive take on ‘Have Love, Will Travel’). They’re not the frustrated teenage punks from working class Washington that they were back in the ’60s, but somehow they can still rock ’n’ roll with the best of them.
