Well it certainly looks like I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar. In my last post I went after the easy target that is support bands. Not too long after scathing a band (basically because they played a different style to the main act) the lead singer of the band posted a comment (I had said the lead singer was old, I'm 24):
Just came across the site, I'd just like to say I'm only 27 but that may be old in your book. Cheers for the honest feedback on the gig - guess we need to stop more between tunes and pause for breath, cos we don't have any 8 minute songs. Glad you enjoyed the other 2 bands a bit more than you did us, guess we're just not you're cup of tea.
Cheers + Beers
THE ALPACINOS "
There was me thinking only some of my close knit friends read the site to listen to my musings. Eddy seems to have taken a positive out of my review, so I thought I'd add a slightly more accurate review.
The AlPacino's are a hardcore punk group from Motherwell, this makes them interesting on the nights billing as Presidents are a 2 guitar rock group. To be honest, they aren't my cup of tea. But they did have stage presence, a noticeably good drummer and even did grassroots promotion to join their mailing list. The performance was pretty energentic and their standout track I Am Spartacus which they played near the end of their set is definitely a grower.
Let this be a lesson to anyone who tries to prey on support bands... they know where you blog!
