#428: The Cribs, The Ritz, Manchester

When The Cribs first appeared in the halcyon days of early '00s indie, flanked by the likes of The Paddingtons and Little Man Tate, there was little in the way suggest they (and their contemporaries) were anything more than a buzz band. To paraphrase guitarist/vocalist Ryan Jarman, ten years on and 2005 is long gone, and whilst many bands from that era haven't so much burnt out as faded away, The Cribs; their fans; their legacy are still burning as bright ever. Don't believe me? Go and see them live.
