KAISER CHIEFS – Live At Elland Road

For fans of English Midlands pop-rock bands, Kaiser Chiefs ought to be way up there – their catchy hooks, sing-along choruses, and hints at early-‘80s Manchester Factory-era bands will have them appeal to both old-schoolers and modern day youngsters. Here the lads from Leeds play their hometown to a packed stadium with all of their favourites, a couple of guests and a new song. Unfortunately the one-and-a-half dozen songs do not get supplemented with documentary material but, you do get an extra slab of live footage from the BBC Electric Proms, where they offer 6 tracks featuring current Bond film scorer David Arnold and an orchestra (as well as a ukulele ensemble and Asian drummers), which includes the songs Modern Way, Jet, Ruby, The Angry Mob, Oh My God and (for the patriotic and footie fans) Land Of Hope And Glory.
Of the 18 songs of the main feature, expect tracks like Ruby, I Predict A Riot, Everything Is Average Nowadays, Saturday Night, Retirement, Love’s Not A Competition, Half The Truth, Everyday I Love You less And Less, Oh My God, and Na Na Na Na Naa.
