The gentle strains of This Song Brought To You By A Falling Bomb and, later, War All The Time, both provide a brief respite from the frenzy, but are no less dramatic or powerful than the louder numbers. While the sing-alongs throughout are whole-hearted, it is, of course, Understanding In A Car Crash – introduced by Geoff as the closest the band ever came to having a hit – that gets the biggest one, with the crowd throwing all the song’s energy and emotion back at the band with joyful abandon. For those few minutes, it doesn’t matter what Geoff is singing, just that he is there, that the band are still here now, even if it’s just for another couple of songs.
A ferocious version of Jet Black New Year – the band’s usual set closer, and the song that rounded off the previous two nights – is followed by Stay True, the last song from the band’s last album, 2011’s No Devolucion. It’s a snaking, heartfelt performance of a snaking, heartfelt song, one whose layers of intense instrumentation, coupled with Geoff’s pleading screams seem to reach back in time, the whole history of the band unfolding in the room as broken bodies drenched in sweat and voices screamed to a whisper get lost in its magnificent crescendo. There’s a palpable sadness when it’s over, but it’s not one that overshadows the joy of the night’s experience, not the sheer thrill of existence that it so clearly has evoked in everybody watching.
