The Wombats mend our broken hearts
The lights go out and The Wombats enter stage with only a flashlight blinking in the background. It isn't an grand entrance but Tord Øverland-Knudsen (bass player) has a big smile on his face for some reason and it really rub off on the audience with a positive effect.
When Matt plays the first tune of 'Kill The Director' the crowd goes completely mental and Debasers floor starts swingin'. The energy is intense and the great feeling that appears in your stomach when hundreds of people love the exact same thing as you do directly spread out in the concert hall.
The whole concert reflects on a lost adolescent, probably Matt himself, and is starting off with 'Kill The Director' explaining about 'the gender I will never understand' and that 'this is no bridget jones' meaning that love life is real and painful. 'If this is a rom-com (romantic comedy film) , kill the director'.
The song could be a reference to his first experiences of love and the songs 'Patricia The Stripper', 'Here Comes the Anxiety' and 'Dr. Suzanne Mattox PhD' explains past loves and event in his life running by in the speedy phase of life represented by the high tempo songs that The Wombats mostly have.
They finish off the concert with playing 'Let's Dance To Joy Division' where the young boy finds 'the cure for a broken heart' that generally is 'fuck it and dance your problems away!'
I think listening to The Wombat could be the cure for a broken heart or at least be an 'anti-d' with some powerful catchphrases like 'This is no bridget jones!', ' She's not that beautiful!' and 'Don't talk to girls they'll break your heart' and so on. Keep The Wombats in mind if you ever get your heart broken, and if you've been to a concert you can always think back to it.
Good Night and I hope you all have your hearts intact.
