24 January 2018 is the day it became official: we won’t ever get to see Mark E. Smith and The Fall on a live stage again. Fortunately the next generation was waiting in the wings with bands like Squid and Fontaines DC. And what about Shame? They blew the post-punk revival away with even better riffs, more impressive lyrics and a singular podium presence. Five years ago they were outstanding at Pukkelpop and this year they're kicking into high gear. Just you wait.
