The Hives Backstage with Best Fit

25 August 2014, 15:00 Photography by Jason Williamson
We went backstage with Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, Nicholaus Arson, Vigilante Carlstroem, Dr. Johan Destructafsson and Chris Dangerous for their sell-out headline show in south London last week. The scissor-kicking Swedes played a riotous, hard-hitting 100 minute set, featuring new track ’Two Kinds Of Trouble’, as well as fan-favourites ‘Main Offender’, ‘Tick Tick Boom’ and ‘Walk Idiot Walk’, before finishing off with a brilliant, extended performance of ‘Hate To Say I Told You So’. Having just played this weekend’s Reading/Leeds, they’re now heading off for festivals in Portugal, Belgium, Spain and Sweden, before embarking on a South American tour. Photos by Jason Williamson
