Set List

  • "Here Comes The Rumor Mill"
  • "The Decision"
  • "Weekend And Bleak Days (Hot Summer)"

The Young Knives' members plant their tongues firmly in cheek on "The Decision," the post-punk-infused pop song that scored them success in the U.K. Produced by Gang of Four's Andy Gill, the single provides a good representation of the British trio's oeuvre: fun and goofy vocal histrionics, straightforward rhythms, and unabashed guitar-pop akin to The Futureheads or even the manic noise-rock of Mclusky.

Based in Minneapolis/St. Paul, The Current features new rock, electronic, hip-hop, and indie music alongside legendary artists.
