NME 'Review' FWW Live

"A trainwreck of unrivalled shite" - the infamous live review!

Perhaps it's Fighting With Wire's reputation and the crowds subsequent expectation for incendiary shows, or the fact they've clearly read 'Funeral For A Friend For Dummies', but tonight is a cringing disappointment.  Save for an anti-climactic cover of Nirvana's "School" their set seems to mesh into an hour long drone of bland, throwaway emo nonsense.  Their collection of crude, cock-swinging 'banter' anout "tight arses" and fingering Madonna, too, is about as funny as the fact that people have actually paid to witness this absolute trainwreck of unrivalled shite.
