You Am I never do things in halves. Instead, they hit the stage running and they give everything they have when they’re there. When the band decided it was time to do something their fans had wanted for years – a concert tour based on their hugely successful and seminal early releases Hi Fi Way or Hourly Daily – they decided to give them both albums back to back. People talked of orchestras and opera houses but really You Am I knew what they needed to do; take these albums, shake ’em loose and play them with the intensity and passion they deserve.
Over a beer at the Dolphin, the band agreed to play ‘Hourly Daily’ first and then kick it up by running through ‘Hi Fi Way’ full tilt right after. Switching the chronological order and making it about building a rock and roll show rather than setting a place in time helped make the ‘Hi Fi Daily Double’ tour one of the rock and roll hoedowns of the year.
‘Live Electrified’ documents one night at the Enmore Theatre in July 2013, a full house sign on the door and two and half thousand people packed inside. For two hours You Am I delivered one of their great rock and roll performances, rolling through classic after classic. ‘Live Electrified’ captures the spirit and intensity displayed that night on both sides of the punter barrier in living colour and glorious stereo sound.
