In their review of the Benefits concert in London last month, NME said: “For all the rage, there’s also a lot of heart.” Towards the end of the concert, Kingsley Hall talks about years of being overwhelmed by “anxiety, stress and fear” and that the only way to deal with it is to admit it.
“It’s a bit like Alcoholics Anonymous,” he says, but threatening eardrum volume. It may have been an exorcism for him, but tonight is a call after everyone else. Stand up, stand up, be heard: don’t let the mothers hold you back.”
Speaking to NME last summer, Hall said he didn’t want Benefits’ live concerts to feel “half-baked”, but rather an “explosion of strength and rage”. He added: “We don’t have anyone to edit us or tell us what to do.”
