The Lamps supporting The Who

As if to hammer home the benefits of youth, support act The Standard Lamps at times look and sound uncannily like the Who of 40 years ago...

 ...their gangly, light-bearded singer and guitarist Mike Wilton sharing Townshend's easy way with a big crowd, and teasing everything from scratchy skiffly rhythms to hard, proggy riffs from a cherry red SG. A three-piece, they are tight and bluesy, with Wilton riffing on his harmonica, but they're also able to deftly channel The Jam's angled, modernist pop on tracks such as The Modern World.
