After Hours Headline Set

Biffy Clyro played their second London gig of the night having earlier supported Bloc Party at Brixton Academy, before moving to NW1 to be one of the "secret" headline acts on the second day of the Camden Crawl. By secret I mean their venue and stage time wasn't printed on the schedule that was handed out at the ticket exchange, but as ever word spreads to the point where nothing is kept very hush hush at the Camden Crawl.

They, along with bands like Be Be See and The Whip played a set after the main headliners were finished, in the case of Biffy theirs was a late gig at the O! Bar.

The venue was packed for the Scottish band, a chance to see one of the UK's best rock acts ahead of the release of their new album and a forth-coming UK tour and festival appearances playing too much larger crowds.

'Puzzle' is due out in May, and the Camden fans were treated to a few new tracks along with older songs from earlier albums such as 'Infinity Land'. Naturally having already received plenty of radio plays, recent singles 'Saturday Superhouse' and 'Semi-Mental' were popular from the new record given that they're already fresh in the mind. Of the older material previous album opener 'Glitter and Trauma' sounded fantastic in such a small environment.

Biffy Clyro are looking set for a big 2007 with the release of their next LP that on this evidence contains a good quantity of strong yet accessible tracks. The band are already confirmed to play Download and the Carling Weekend later in the year. Given that they've graced festival main stages in the past this for many was an unexpected and rare opportunity to get into a gig that on its own would sell out in minutes.
