The Radiators were great. I thought they exuded class and sounded really good. They are quintessential 80s Aussie rockers and their sound was perfect 80s Aussie rock. The crowd (mostly in their 30s and 40s) took a while to fully get into the show but by the end the place was rocking. They threw in some covers, The Beatles, Revolution and The Angels, Coming Home, which had me thinking, "hang on, was this a Radiators song?", and an encore including a bass solo and a killer drum solo. The lead singer, who looks like a cross between Roger Daltry, Steve Kilby and (cricketer) Geoff Lawson is very charismatic, even though he doesn't say much, preferring to leave the talking to the bass player. Anyway, overall I give it a solid B+.
I took some photos of the gig.
