The Horrors As Faris Badwan sings on one of The Horrors’ biggest hits ‘Still Life’ “The moment that you want is coming if you give it time”, this is true of a Horrors gig. Having only seen them before at festivals, I ventured down to the HMV Ritz for a much more intimate show which surpassed my expectations over the course of the evening. The Horrors are an atmospheric band that truly shine in a small venue.
