The Hitchers
The Zone, Swansea
January 1998

The Hitchers play that kind of old-school indie that your older brother used to listen to whilst hiding in his bedroom.

Undeterred by the lack of interest that they’re shown tonight, the Hitchers wear their hearts on their sleeve and their pants on their head (well, are you paying enough attention to tell me they aren’t?). Despite not playing 'Strachan' (easily one of the greatest football songs of all time), the seditionary likes of 'Killed It With My Bare Hands' and 'You Can Only Love Someone So Much' are thrown out into the crowd with vigour and vitriol before closing with an explosive rendition of 'Mama Mia'.

Your older brother would have loved it.
