The venue in Islington suffered slightly by simply not being able to grant the bands the space that they all deserved but ever the professionals, the music, the personalities, the talent and the oh so gorgeous solos shone through like a beacon of light on a stormy night.
All too quickly the set came to a climax with ‘Can’t Kill a Good Thing’ and ‘(They Call Me) The Sonic Gypsy’ providing the most fitting of conclusions on what we can only hope is the beginning of the beginning once more for Mickey, Sploote and the rest of the band.
This is a mere taster only of what these bands have to offer and I would implore listeners to check out the albums in their entirety, some have several releases already under their belts, all fantastic and absolutely deserving of a place in any decent record collection.
