Mexrrissey

A timely appearance for the Mexican Morrissey tribute band’s ‘Don’t mention the Wall’ tour, given recent events, and the inventive backdrops, including Mozza bashing a Trump pinata, clearly defined their feelings.

Despite opening with an explosive Mariachi-tinged ‘First Of The Gang To Die’ and a cha-cha-cha ‘Girlfriend In A Coma’ the seated crowd were slow to respond until Ceci Bastida, the sole female member, took lead vocals on more much-loved Morrissey-penned classics. ‘Ask’, ‘Panic’ and ‘Bigmouth’ kept the audience dancing and trading vocals until they ended on a high with a singalong ‘Estuvo Bien’ (Suedehead) and the classic ‘How Soon Is Now’. Viva love.
