Just because everyone believes something, doesn’t make it untrue. “Best live band in Britain”, or similar post-gig frothing, is the phrase that often tumbles from grinning lips and it’s hard to disagree: Islet are a screaming, double-drumming treat, total intensity, maximum fun. We are madly in love (here and here being the latest declarations) and new mini-album Wimmy will surely only make it worse. You can buy that at this gig, but the main thing is, you get to see Islet play live, in your face, down your back, and through your brain. It’s good to be alive.
