Markan, Hässleholm - 2007

Torpedo from Sweden are playing as support band for Dia Psalma, and with a newly released album, In The Assembly Line, this makes a lot of sense I suppose. Not that they are playing quite the same style of music though, Torpedo themselves call their music indie/rock, and I have to say I agree with that.
Since this has never been a favourite genre of mine, I can't say their music moves me especially much. Don't misread this as if they're bad though, for that they are not. It is just not the type of thing that gets me going.

Now, what impresses me the most with this band, and impresses me a lot I might add, is the performance. I don't know for how long these guys have been playing together, but judging from the fact that this is their first album, it can't have been too long. Not professionally at least. But professionals they are, make no mistake! They use the small space on stage (it is a very small stage) as much as they can, they make a very good effort to get the crowd going, even though it is still a pretty slow night, they make long and interesting presentations of their songs, and most of all, they really know how to rock.
So, all in all, this was a band that was really fun to watch, giving one of the liveliest performances I've seen in a while.
