When the Heroes of She agreed to headline at a fundraising event for the earthquake victims of Haiti they were told that they would be following “The Bishop”. A spin-off from Reverend and the Makers perhaps?. Nothing so mundane. This was a real bishop, the Bishop of Haiti, who was there to lay bare a few uncomfortable facts about the tragic events in Haiti. He did a good job as more than £1,000 was raised on the night.
As for the Heroes- they were storming, playing a full set for more than an hour- in fact one of the best gigs they have done. The Heroes have been lying low for a while, writing and rehearsing songs for their second album; tonight they played two of the new songs in public for the first time. The first, “We Don’t Love You” is instantly catchy, obvious single material. The second, Diabolique, sung partly in French, is one of the cleverest, most inventive songs they have written. Here it is, as captured on my flip video. Thank you guys for your generous words in the introduction.
