THEY may have sold out King Tut's three nights in a row, but Declan Welsh and The Decadent West take nothing for granted.

It was clear from the first few moments of their first set last night that they would earn everything coming their way.

As one of the highlights of last summer's TRNSMT, expectations for these shows would be at a peak. Could they hit those heights once again?

There was only thing for it: roll out the entire debut album, performing all 12 songs (as well as the bonus track) front to back, before rounding off with a handful of big hitters.

Not too many up and coming acts play for an hour and half, never mind for three nights in a row, but such was the band's desire to make up for time lost to the pandemic, they had well and truly gone for it.

Their 2019 LP – Cheaply Bought, Expensively Sold – is well-built to lead a set, with No Fun and Absurd combining well as an opening salvo, with performances of How Does Your Love, Different Strokes and Times among the others to land.

Crowd favourites in the form of Parisian Friends and Shiny Toys turned things up a notch after their album run was complete, along with new release Impermanency and another intriguing new track.

A special mention should also go to support act Pleasure Heads for setting the stage for what was to come.

Two more nights at Glasgow's King Tut's await for the Declan Welsh and the Decadent West. From there, the doors of the city's bigger venues are readying to open wide.
