LIVE REVIEW – AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS LIVE IN MANCHESTER

Tuesday night was certainly one to remember as Australian punk rockers Amyl and the Sniffers took to the Albert Hall stage and tore it a new one. 

Showcasing their recently released LP Comfort to Me, the band smashed their way through an electrifying 45 minute set, complete with plenty of audience participation in the form of crowd surfing. The band has gone from strength to strength capturing a worldwide fan base and attracted an eclectic audience of young and old revelers. 

The Melbourne 4 piece, fronted by the hedonistic and effortlessly cool Amy Taylor who strutted, stomped raged and shimmied her way through the high-intensity set, made it clear why they are constantly selling out shows, proving that they are a band you most certainly need to see live. 

When it comes to the lyrics, no stone is left unturned and this band are not afraid of controversy with politics and feminism amongst the ferocious guitar riffs. The crowd ramped it up a notch when “I’m Not. A Loser” was played, which was a challenge considering it was one of those most energetic reactions I’d seen in recent years from a Manchester audience. 

Amyl and The Sniffers are heading to Knebworth this weekend followed by the ever-impressive Coachella before resuming their European tour in late June.
