Loitered Lens: The BibleCode Sundays

Far more akin to the grittiness of The Levellers than the sanitised folk-light of Mumford and Sons, The BibleCode Sundays grabbed the attention of the early arrivals [to PiL’s O2 Indigo show].

Maybe It’s Because I’m an Irish Londoner set out their identity with a lyrical style not dissimilar to The Pogues, with the story telling ability of a generation raised on folk tunes.

Three guitars (lead, acoustic and bass) gave a well-rounded college rock vibe at times with the added bonus of an accordion and an extremely accomplished left-handed violinist to infuse it with full-on Celtic folksiness.
