>MAXIMO PARK
BRISTOL, LOUISIANA: 19.02.05

Having previously supported the likes of New Rhodes and The Futureheads, Maximo Park arrive in Bristol as part of their own headline tour. They take to the stage dressed, as usual, in suits. And by gosh do they look snappy, almost as snappy as frontman Paul Smith's dance moves.

Their music is spikey and fast paced, as proved on first single "The
Coast is Always Changing". This comes through brilliantly in their
live shows. Even though during this particular show they were having keyboard programmes, it didn't matter, they were still excellent. The visual element is helped greatly by Paul and

keyboard player Lucas' dancing, which is just as erratic as their music.

Highlights of the set were "Now I'm All Over the Shop", "The Night I Lost My Head" and, obviously, their current single "Apply Some Pressure", which rocked so hard I thought the Louisiana might actually collapse.

As the fans are saying, 'Mon The Park!
