MP! Reviews: The Struts @ London’s Borderline.

We sent down the pretty face of MP! Luke Franks to get a bit sweaty at The Struts headline show. Jam packed, over capacity and by the sounds of it bloody amazing here’s what happened.

The Struts look almost as good as they sound. At first sight you’ll see the rock and roll hair and the leather jackets but look a little deeper and you realise this isn’t just another band of wannabe guys in skinny jeans.

If exams (or work)  have driven you to the point of going absolutely cray cray you need to head to the MP! Clinic and get a prescription for a solid 2 hours listening to The Struts. After this you’ll realise the world is actually about being a rockstar and not getting a B in general studies (or replying to all those emails that are sat in your inbox, oops).

Luke Spiller the lead singer is pretty much the love child of Freddie Mercury (ask your dad), Mick Jagger and Harry Styles, we think he may actually be some sort of rock God.

He also wore this. Because he can.


At one point Luke even had the entire venue sit on the floor and then jump and go absolutely mental on his command. We told you, rock God.

It was sweaty. So sweaty. We didn’t even mind! People share sweat because it’s rock and roll. Shout out to Luke again who did a dog shake with his head and covered the front row of girls who we hope will never wash themselves again.

We even spotted the Rixton lads in the audience, you can’t escape our trained eyes.

The Struts played tracks from their original ‘Kiss This’ EP and forthcoming album including ‘Could Have Been Me’, ‘My Machine’, ‘You & I’ and their new single ‘Put Your Money On Me’ – people knew ALL the words to EVERYTHING.

The Struts put on a live show exactly how it should be, drenched in disgusting rock and roll juices and ears ringing. If you want a display of dirty grimey brilliant rock, you need to see this band.

Their debut album ‘Everyone Wants’ is released 28th July. Pre-order it here.
