The Gaff, Holloway Road 08.04.09
These guys mix up classic rock with a hint of heavy metal.Its good driving rock that gets the feet a tapping and the head a nodding, which is exactley what you want from an opening act.
From the opening military drumming to the closing "Classic Motorhead Ending" this Kent 3 piece served up some very well executed post grunge rock.Fronted by Dan Osborne who plays guitar and screams and sings his heart out, backed with a solid rhythm section they knock out a perfect 30 minute set.
Pulling the biggest crowd tonight and setting the place on fire, the London lad's continue to show why they are growing in popularity on a weekly basis.A faultless set once again everyone in the audience is singing along and those who didnt know who they were were also joining in.
Tonight they threw in an odd cover (For a young band) with CCR's "Green River" right in between two thrashier songs and it went down a storm.
No metallica cover tonight (Hooray!!) so ten out of ten from me.

So taking to the stage with a comment that they are a new band playing their first gig, the legendary glam rockers blast into their set in front of an audience who really didnt know who they were......Okay i'll say nothing here and make of that what you will.
Now here's the thing, vocalist Zion really knows how to work a crowd and believe me he worked this one and turned it around, he got everybody singing along, dancing and laughing and you know what they are fucking great live.
Good musicians and good showmen and lady, outstanding songs like "Sex, Drugs & Heavy Metal" and their superior version of "Sweet Transvestite" proved a big hit.
They drastically cut their set and left after about 25 minutes, that was a shame, but hey thats rock n roll and i guess they were so pissed off that they, err well, pissed off.
