Live Review: The Editors at the Fineline
I have yet to bring my eyes across a press bit about the Editors that didn't mention Interpol. Both of their records may convey strong reasoning for this trend, however Wednesday night at the Fine Line Music Café, in support of their new album An End has a Start, the Editor’s stagnant fan base in Minneapolis was faced with a band that possesses something their post punk forefathers of 3 years seems to lack. Frontman Tom Smith had moments of floor kissing convulsions and acrobatic piano soaring which is something the stylish and boldly dressed Paul Banks is simply “too cool” to mimic.
Cranking out new tunes such as “The Weight of the World” and “Bones,” the old favorites “Munich” and “Bullets,” and encoring with a rather impressive performance of the new single “Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors,” the Editors set themselves apart from the four murky men from NYC, and left the people present feeling serene and composed.
