Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Erol Alkan : We booked them to play at the right time, when people started believing in the band. You don ’t expect a thousand people on a Monday night but there was a level of hysteria about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at the time which just seemed to pick up pace and people flirted with it. There was a sense that the band were very special and people actually needed to be there. Every band gets treated equally and has the same platform to shine on but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs ’ performance was one that just resonated with everyone.
Liam O ’Hare (The End's Operations Manager): They ’d had a flurry of bands such as Peaches and Gonzales , which we knew were going to be huge. But the Yeah Yeah Yeahs broke all records for Trash - we had 1,000 people on a Monday night, which is unheard of. No one did gigs on a Monday back then, let alone club nights. Nowadays everyone does it. They wiped the floor with the crowd. [Singer] Karen O mesmerised everyone. They ’d never worked with a sound system like ours before and it elevated them higher and higher. Jaws were on the floor.
