Kaiser Chiefs on a Roll

SPIN iconSPIN Staff // April 5, 2005

It doesn’t take E.S.P., or even just good taste in music, to predict that the Kaiser Chiefs would nearly set off a riot at the recent Spin House Live at Spin HQ. The lads from Leeds had the crowd cheering and pogoing along as they played hits like “Everyday I Love You Less and Less” and yes, the chart-busting single off of their full-length debut, Employment, “I Predict a Riot.” Ricky Wilson kept things hopping with his coy banter, and, when he ran out of jokes, he passed the mic off to onlookers in the balcony for additional comic relief. Fortunately, the band’s performances were far more tasteful than the crowd’s stripped-from-the-headlines humor.
