FIVE SECOND RULE
AMBER AND SAM
Big Red, Holloway Road 18.12.09
After an introduction from tonights host, Laura London, Sophie takes to the stage for
another outstanding fire performance, how she does some of those things like running
the flames down her arms then blowing them out without being rushed to hospital burns
unit never fails to impress me!!!
After the fire comes the angle grinder, always visually impressive and slightly dangerous.
Laura then introduces Lydia, she comes on with a blow torch and lights a cigar which
she then puts out on her tongue!!!Her next performance still remains one of the best acts i have ever seen with a flaming hula hoop which she spins around her neck!!
AMBER & SAM
A special one off performance from Nemhains Sam and Amber with a unique version of
'Santa Baby' in the style of a drunken/stoned female singer (who said Amy Winehouse??).For the next 10 minutes we were treated to one of the best comic routines i have seen for a long time.
I must mention Sam's awesome backing vocals and ambers great improvisations.
FIVE SECOND RULE
Just the most explosive, fun, entertaining rock n roll band around full stop.Starting with 'Sunday Roast' an odd title for a catchy sing-a-long song that gets the place rocking.From this point on its just a non stop party, then we get to 'Clusterfuck' a moody song with a message about the current situation with soldiers fighting in afganistan, the weird thing is that the song works on all levels!
Next up is their cover of 'Word Up', this can mean one thing only...."sexy girl time",
and we have Claudia De La Creme onstage dressed as mrs santa claus and a great
The song 'Malmo' gets nailed next with its borderline heavy metal riffs and thats
followed by 'Shadows' yet another great song.
The set ends with the song everybody likes 'Ambition' and Claudia and Laura jump up for
some dancing and a quick magic trick, the perfect end to a perfect set!
Lydia then returns to the stage for a classic burlesque striptease and throws her own
branded dollars into the audience.
