Eels open Summer Series
Eels kicked off the Somerset House Summer Series last night (07.07.11).
The US group thrilled the crowd who had braved the rain at the London venue with a hit-laden, career-spanning performance on the outdoor stage that even pleased usually-dour frontman Mark 'E' Everett.
He proclaimed: "That was fun!."
Among the highlights of the two-hour show were a spectacular cover version of Sly and the Family Stone's 'Hot Fun in the Summertime' - which saw each band member take a line from the refrain - 'Last Stop: This Town', 'Souljacker Pt. 1' and arguably the group's most famous hit, 'Novocaine For The Soul'.
The show ended with the rarely-performed track 'Losing Streak', with the frontman proclaiming: "You hear me? I said my losing streak is done!"
Support for the evening came from Jesca Hoop.
