Gigs Discography Reviews Contacts Forum Downloads

Try as you might, its just not possible to make it to each and every gavin gig. So as a public service we have provided these reviews -written by members of the band, fans, punters, and general hangers on - so that You, the reader, can live a little of the rock & roll lifestyle that may come as second nature to us but is sometimes unfortunately out of reach of regular, more together, members of society.

DISCLAIMER: Gavin take no responsibility for the appropriateness or correctness of any of the following articles. It is possible that they may be loosely based on actual events, but it is more than likely they are complete fabrications.

Degrees.k, Midnight Swim, Gavin (Taken from www.indieinitiative.com)
Degrees.k, Midnight Swim, Gavin Laundry Thursday October 9 "...Hanging out at the Laundry. Not to do the washing, but to look at some great bands. Gavin got the night off to a good start. Being the only local band they pulled most of the crowd. They have just recruited a new guitarist but they were sounding good. They have a couple of tunes that I love. Good to great pop/rock....." ...

Gavin - A Tale of Two Cities (review)
As appeared in Buzz Magazine - August 2000... Yet another band with a persons name and with a bit of luck and some hard work they should see themselves with the same success as their counterparts.

Their singer Gru has the ability to sound like Kelly Jones (Sterophonics) on Orange Slime and an early Daniel Johns...
