The Lathums at the Forum
Last night The Lathums brought their sold-out UK tour to the Forum in Kentish Town – their biggest London show to date – giving their legions of fans another chance to catch them live.
The four-piece from Wigan are made up of literary front man Alex Moore, vintage guitar-obsessed, multi-instrumentalist Scott Concepcion, Johnny Cunliffe on bass and Ryan Durrans behind the drums, with influences ranging wildly from The Housemartins to The Ramones and Patsy Cline. They last toured as a headline act in February 2020, before the pandemic hit in earnest. In typical style, tickets sold out in just 60 seconds, in Manchester, London and Glasgow, with demand to join The Lathums’ generation-defining live experience growing alongside their songwriting skill.
Singles All My Life and I See Your Ghost were released in the midst of 2020’s hiatus for live music, with the indie rockers also finding success in their first foray into the UK album charts with the vinyl-only EP compilation, The Memories We Make. They also made the most of the attention of their living-room-bound public, appearing on Later… with Jools Holland, as well as breaking into BBC Radio One’s Introducing playlist.
The Upcoming’s Guifré de Peray was at the Forum to shoot their latest smash gig.
