Pom Poko – Mash House, Edinburgh – 13 Oct 2019

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wow! I thought Pom Poko from Norway could be good, but I was blown away like the rest of a packed Sunday night Mash House crowd.  We all got the same blast from their spectacular music and infectious energy and enthusiasm, well I bopped around like loon anyway! Quite a unique sound I think with math rock, modern pop, jazz and world music flavours with odd rhythms, times and melodies. Right up my street!

Just Mustard – Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh – 10 Oct 2019

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Second night in a row at the wonderful Sneaky Pete’s and from the sublime Lewsberg to the not so sublime. I sometimes buy tickets after hearing just a sample of a band’s stuff and am rarely disappointed, but I was hoping for more from Dundalk’s Just Mustard. Some nice ideas, but off key vocals, incoherent rambling music with pointless guitar noise (at My Bloody Valentine volume levels) … I could go on but maybe it was an off night for a young hard working band, so good luck to them anyway.

Well done to support band Medicine Cabinet though. Not really my style but audacious, interesting, photogenic and very entertaining, a band to watch out for!

Lewsberg – Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh – 9 Oct 2019

What a find! Lewsberg from Rotterdam have a reputation of sounding like The Velvet Underground and early Talking Heads among others. Not being a big Velvets fan I can confirm though that impression is right.  I am, however, now a Lewsberg fan! Simple guitar sounds, smart and cynical lyrics, deadpan delivery in dutch accent … could be dry and boring but their conviction and intensity is persuasive so you get drawn into their world. And it turns out to be a catchy and fun world, who knew? Magic!
