‘Please excuse us, I think we’re having a bit too much fun up here’ Demarco explained to the crowd Saturday night at the Coronet Theatre in London.  This came after the band broke into a medley of Dr. Dre’s ’The Next Episode, The Deliverance theme song, The La’s ‘There She Goes’, and Bruce Hornsby’s ‘The Way It Is’.  Mac and his band give the 3,000 audience members the feeling they’re at their friend’s high school house party gig.  In Mac’s case this isn’t a bad thing as it’s refreshing to see someone with ample talent ‘take the piss’ as he told the crowd in a mock British accent.  Much like the Libertines, the controlled chaos in Mac’s set evolves into musical excellence as the tight band performs his repertoire.  Mac first and foremost writes great songs with memorable hooks the crowd was eager to shout back at him.
