Tiny Masters of Today, Tottenham Court Road Fopp, London, 14.4.07
There were some kids at this gig in nu-rave robes who were so tiny they not only weren't born when rave started, but possibly weren't even born when nu-rave started. As you could see from the graffiti on the bed-sheet behind the stage, Fopp has hosted dozens of bands from the all-ages gigs scene, and, although it's not a scene that impresses me much, you can't complain about the chance to see Tiny Masters of Today. After my interview last week, I don't have much to add about Ivan and Ada, but, despite the awful sound, they were awesome – particularly their un-ironic cover of House of Pain's Jump Around, with Ivan squealing away instead of a saxophone sample.
