Thanks to all for a great gig last night. It was one of Trav's last shows with Gavin so it was great to give him such an awesome send-off! Also thanks to Heidi and Tanya for selling our merchandise...

Inpress Indie Initiative review

Thursday November 21

Rubber Bullet, Gavin, What are we Robots?

Having not been able to confirm an opening band with enough notice, only 3 bands appeared on Thursday night.

The night got off to a great start with another great performance by What are we Robots? This 3 piece make great music. The band is anchored by a solid unit on bass and drums and fronted by a charismatic frontman Kirk. Whilst possibly not as great a performance as their first show, they still managed to impress. Their final two songs Vixen (Shiver to my Timbers) and Saddest place in town are fantastic.

Gavin continue to impress. Why this band has not attracted attention is beyond me. Perfect rock songs, twin guitars meshing together, creating great hooks, with catchy choruses. Very Swervedriver, Teenage Fan Club kind of stuff.
They were in a fun mood where they played their best songs first. Whilst this got the show off to a huge start it only left the finish a bot flat. A large crowd had come to see them and of course they werenít disappointed. The old do yourself a favour applies to this band.

Rubber Bullet were having their last gig before one of the members went off on holiday. A big crowd gathered down the front to enjoy their big sound. Big guitars, big riffs. They, and the crowd were all having a good time. CDís flung out into the crowd, dancers on stage, all the hallmarks of a good time. They are a young band are starting to focus on their material
