Sugar Fan Memory
Glastonbury 2016
From : Lemming
It's all about the bass. Sugar made its live debut on the 26th June 2012 at the Birmingham HMV Institute. Editors spent a two night residency there and it was speculated, as it turned out almost correctly, that the band were going to split afterwards. But that's a different story. Sugar was song number one on the setlist for both nights and is one of the first instances we have of personalities emerging through the music. Russell's fuzzy bass that starts and ends everything, Ed's bio-mechanical drumming going from clean to processed and back, the way Justin hits notes which is different to Chris but still very...Editors (whatever that means). Elliott provides creative drama with the keyboards and Tom brings it home with the lyrics/vocals. Sugar was solid and cohesive but easily separated into its constituent parts, a quality that most prior Editors recordings had. Best of all, Sugar actually has two choruses; one with lyrics and one without straight afterwards. Roxette would be proud.
