Well that was pretty good, wasn’t it!? Altered Hours launched their debut album In Heat Not Sorry at the Kino in January, promoted by Southern Hospitality Board, and returned to the venue at the end of the year, Saturday, December 10, as part of the promoters’ Sudden Club Weekender. Supported by the Bonk, a self-described wanderly wagon consisting of some faces familiar to O Emperor fans, the Altered Hours took a little while to get going, starting with slow newbie ‘Colour Scheme’. Album opener ‘Who’s Saving Who’ is the third track here and hints at the power and energy soon to come, enlivened further by ‘Grey On Blue’, one of my tracks of the year. It sounds massive. Amid another new song, ‘Worry’, Altered Hours completely change gear and for the last 20 or so minutes prove why they’re such a stellar live rock band. They play the Grand Social in Dublin on Thursday, December 15 – just go, don’t question it. Pictures below by Brid O’Donovan (Facebook | Twitter | Instagram)
