An evening of great rock music at The Hunter Club was rounded off with a blockbuster set from Gaffa Tape Sandy.
Bad Stone opened the night with their expansive progressive rock sounds, entertaining an already large crowd. Their extraordinarily loud guitar riffs reverberated around the room treating everyone to tracks like Magic Caravan. A great way to start the night.
Psych-punk newcomers Egyptian Blue’s set was easily one of the best we’ve seen for a while. Their instantly memorable collection of hits like the NME-endorsed To Be Felt and the inspiring Cut Me A Hole won over a lot of people on the night. These guys are definitely a band you need to watch out for, because we’re tipping them for big things!
Having released their debut album Husk a matter of week ago, the loveable Goldblume trio’s whistle-stop tour of the county arrived at The Hunter Club with a performance full of uptempo classics like Husk and Razor, and more reflective tracks including Alice. The band’s tight-knit set proved why they are so well-liked around the East of England.
Another band who released their debut album recently were Fightmilk who owned the stage with their fun-filled pop punk back catalogue. Though the lead singer admitted to having a “very very bad sore throat”, the band were not phased by it at at all and wowed the packed crowd. The foursome played many tracks from their debut album Not With That Attitude including Four Star Hotel and How You Move On.
With the venue completely sold out, Gaffa Tape Sandy steamrolled onto the stage pounding out crowd favourites Water Bottle and Pink Neck/Train Wreck before treating the partisan crowd to a few new tracks, notably the awesome Turnstile which has been a staple at all of their recent live shows.
Tracks like Transylvania and Manager meant that the moshing and crowd surfing ensued before a rare live outing for the track Collarbones calmed down proceedings.
Latest single Meat Head and traditional set closer Beehive rounded off a memorable night for the trio. Having just returned from Iceland Airwaves and with a huge 2019 ahead of them, seeing Gaffa Tape Sandy in venues as small as this could be a rarity in the future
