FEET – Live @ Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds

If the first rule of having a happier life is to ignore the make believe world that exists on your phone, then in their own way Coventry five piece FEET are very much part of the solution not the problem.

Hyde Park Book Club – as millenially cool as the vibe is upstairs, courtesy of a roots reggae night that has bass echoes reverberating across the postcode – is certainly no field of dreams, concrete and snug, it’s strength is in putting artists and crowd in close proximity. This set up works best when the performers use the intimacy as well as having few inhibitions about joining their audience, but FEET also have a set of killer songs in their arsenal culled from the awkwardly but superb titled debut album What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham.

The combination is a recipe for success – and the band know it. Singer Jeep (AKA George) struts around the stage in his England football tee looking like Mick Jagger auditioning for Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, but the likes of English Weather, Ad Blue and Petty Thieving would all sound great in a back room or an arena, the bastard offspring of Blur and the Happy Mondays at their toking early peak.
