Although they were playing before a packed hall of rabid fans, singer Justin Sullivan isn't much in the mood for conversation, cutting the crowd's effort short with a pointed, "I don't understand a word, sorry." But they understand him and happily lap up the music New Model Army unleashes. It's an invigorating show, delivered with the band's usual panache, if not their typical fire – radio jitters, perhaps. Still, they serve up a set that spans most of their career and even reaches all the way back to their debut album for "Smalltown England." Immediately following it with "Archway Towers" and "51st State," New Model Army plants the Union Jack firmly in Berlin's Einsporthalle, albeit while simultaneously exposing their homeland's uglier underbelly.
