They are a formidable live unit and absolutely mesmerising to watch – I don’t remember even glancing away from the stage.
Copious amounts of beer consumed help the vocal performance of the crowd and ‘Heavy Heart’ is given a unique backing vocal that (cough) works very well!
Electric Mary’s gig that night definitely brought back something that reminded of the 70s. Musicians enjoying their music, emerging in their instruments during long solos and being laid back with the crowd, resulting in a mutual enjoyment of their music.
The Borderline is regarded as a Soho musical institution. The basement venue, originally opened in 1976 in another guise has offered a stage for acts from Britpop to grunge and alt.folk and all points in between but is best known for its focus on alternative rock plus traditional rock and metal acts. It’s small with a capacity of around 275 and it is this limit that allows the crowds to get up close and personal with any band playing here.
