The concert was set to start at 21:30 and with just a few minutes delay Brody entered the stage dressed in jeans and fluorescent orange shirt and presenting the thirsty fans with a mixture of tracks from her new album  Diploid Love (to be released later this year with no set date as of yet) and with songs from her old projects including a Misfits’ cover, Hybrid Moments.

Despite the technical problems with the sound and Brody’s difficulty hearing herself properly on stage, the vocalist gave an energetic performance, throwing herself into the audience during Ghetto Love  where the excited fans were already expecting crowd surfing as predicted by previous gigs in America.

Brody’s sparse interaction with the fans and her now familiar band, longtime friend and guitarist Tony Bevilacqua and drummer Hayden Scott, left some disappointed but admiration never wavered as Dalles’ raspy and shouty voice on the Distillers hits sounded as fresh and strong as ever.

The material from her solo career represents a new musical phase for the vocalist but showing the same aggressiveness in the track Meet The Foetus  where the crowd sang along the chorus while Brody offers the microphone around to the audience.

Her punk rocker side also showed up last night  “You guys are Japanese or what?  Do you speak fucking English? I thought we were in England ! ”  The audience was not making too much noise inbetween songs but they were still excited and their eyes fixated on her performance. Dalle had to switch guitars a lot and tuning them inbetween most of the songs which slowed things down a little.   A brave fan shouted about the yellow socks, which Brody was asking for someone to bring to her via Twitter, and she replied gracefully : “Yeah! Where’s my yellow socks? ”

After London , Brody and her band mates will be heading to Berlin , Netherlands, apart from Australia and New Zealand, where they’ll be supporting Queens of The Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails tour. All in all, Brody Dalles presence back on the music scene is welcomed by many, and has ignited excitement from her fans, which was shown at her intimate gig here in London. Welcome back Ms Dalle.
