Klaxons are a household name after a couple of years of spearheading the so called nu-rave scene. Although ‘nu-rave’ was actually an in-joke that the media jumped on (and the band have since sought to distance themselves), it captured the imagination of music-buyers and gig-goers throughout 2006 and 2007 and Klaxons were the scene’s figureheads. Their album, ‘Myths of the Near Future’, caused a storm with its glorious melodies, anarchic energy, danceable beats and its unashamed lyrical peculiarity. It earned them a Mercury Music Prize and a Best New Band award at the NME Awards and made them the year’s most exciting and talked about group. Inevitably, a band like Klaxons that combine the principles of dance music with guitars and synths was bound to find a captive audience at Trash, and so one of their notoriously shambolic early live shows took place at The End. They’ve since also appeared DJing at both Trash and Bugged Out! as well as regularly appearing in the crowd at Durrr (see the pictures from the night with Justice, Erol Alkan and Pedro Winter DJing), but it’s the video of their live set in out lounge that’s really worth watching!
