The Chameleons - Live at the Camden Palace
(Deluxe - 2004)

A gig that is part of the old 80's series now released on DVD. A mancunian band who are like a bad version of U2 crossed with The Smiths who have a singer who comes across like a weird Morrisey meets Feargal Sharkey.

It's all very forgettable to be honest this is 80's new wave at its worst - a daggy looking bunch who are tight at what they do, but just what they do is so sadly unappealing and miserable - thank god this series of filmed gigs showed miles better bands.
