Putting one of Britain’s rawest and most unapologetic new bands in a packed out Dutch venue on the national holiday that is King’s Day was always bound to be a recipe for success. Last night, London’s shame – together with Hotel Lux and Charlie & the Lesbians – took on a sweaty Rotown in the heart of Rotterdam as they treated some 250 revellers to cuts from critically acclaimed debut album Songs of Praise. Jack Parker checked it out.
