Taking the old adage of “play each show like it’s your last” they rapidly turn everything up several notches and entertain us with several tracks from the excellent ‘Slit’ mixed in with tracks from the current release as well.
As mentioned at the start HOG don’t try to hide their influences, they are there for all to see, but the difference between a blatant rip-off and this lot are several:

It has always been surprising that a well-respected, and frankly brilliant band like Therapy? do not play more shows on their native emerald isle. By their own admission, it’s not that they don’t want to
Out of Wigan, UK comes the trio Deepshade. A band playing pure Alternative Rock with a sort of 1990’s approach. It could be called Grunge as well, although there is a The Doors kind of Classic Rock vibe shining through.
A rescheduled show due to guitar player Jeremy Brown’s passing, meant that fans who had been expecting to see the band live back in April were chomping at the bit by the time Scott Weiland & Co. returned to the UK. The passing of a band mate is never easy and oftens results in the band splintering before finally dissolving. Not so Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts. Whilst Weiland has always got other ‘projects’ on the go, this band / incarnation does seem to have some staying power and a sold out Garage in London’s Highbury and Islington district suggests the fans are still eager to see what the man can deliver.
Almost one year to the day on from their fantastic show at the same venue The Brew return to London’s famous 100 Club to bring their own blend of blues and rock ‘n roll to an eager crowd ready for more.
Everything you could want in a SOUNDGARDEN album can be found right here and in many ways it feels like such a natural progression from DOWN ON THE UPSIDE…
The easiest way to describe the sound going on here is like a less-catchy version of NICKELBACK, and the band borrows just as much from nineties grunge music as all of the other modern radio-friendly rock bands of today do. The biggest problem with basing your sound around this formula is there is really nothing exciting about it.
The intro to “Answer To No One” has me thinking a young Ozzy meets Layne Staley riding on a horse back down in the old West with a license to kill, a cool vibe takes this song and precariously makes it a winner, mad love to the sparkling guitar lead on here also top notch.
