Rock Kent did a review of the ‘Music on the Hill’ festival that took place last weekend and they of course mentioned McFLY. And really this is a worth it review to read.

From the screams that emanate from the crowd when they catch even a glimpse of a member of McFly (10/10) it’s pretty obvious what we’re dealing with here. The 4-piece take to the stage and storm into recent hit “Party Girl” and it’s pop at its saccharine best. It’s simple but it works and it’s easy to see where comparisons to The Beatles and The Beach Boys come from. On record McFly are as slick and polished as everything else in the charts but there’s something about this band live that has real edge.

Tracks like “Lies” off their self-released album “Radio:ACTIVE” aren’t a far cry away from bands such as All Time Low and Simple Plan and this poses another question- If McFly had been marketed differently, could they have been featured in magazines such as Kerrang or Rocksound? They’re a lot heavier than a fair few pop-punk bands featured in those publications and they’re certainly a lot better live than most, plus, the songwriting itself is faultless.

Lead singer Danny holds the crowd in the palm of his hand whether it’s telling them to get up or get down and everyone does what they’re told. He leaps around the stage and spins like a pinwheel during breakthrough single “The Girl With 5 Colours In Her Hair” and bassist Dougie could easily be playing in a hardcore band the amount he rocks out. An acoustic medley of “It’s All About You/Obviously” reminds everyone why they fell in love with the band in the first place and for those like myself who were fairly ambivalent towards the group shows how gifted these individuals are. It’s really obvious when an artist or band dials in a performance. You can just tell. Yet even though McFly do this every single day, they play as if their lives depend on it and they put every part of themselves into it.

It seems that Dougie and Tom are being busy lately doing… a complete redesign on Dougie’s room at Tom’s house if we read what Tom tweeted this morning.
They are writing some new songs too. Can’t wait to hear them.

@tommcfly I’ve been in Dougie’s pad painting Dougie’s wall wearing a headband. I feel like Dougie only fatter with a bigger chin and less facial hair.

There is an article on yahoo that mentions McFLY very very briefly. You have the extract were McFLY appears in but you can read the rest by clicking here.

Saw III was bringing in the crowds at US movie houses, McFly were top of the UK hit parade, the original iPhone was seven months away from hitting the market and actress Winona Ryder was celebrating her 35th birthday. Halcyon days indeed – simpler times.The world was a very different place on October 29th, 2006
