Do Nothing – Mash House, Edinburgh – 5 Nov 2021

I first saw Do Nothing getting on for 3 years ago supporting another great Nottingham band Kagoule. That was my favourite gig of 2019, both bands superb. So after a long Covid induced hiatus and a re-arranged date a few weeks ago (also due to Covid) Andy and I were most excited to see a band we’ve enjoyed listening to a lot recently. And Do Nothing did not let us down. As they say ‘The results are in, and it looks like everyone gets a big old slice of nothing’ … (in their earworm song ‘Le Bron James’)!

The sardonic, barbed lyrics and spoken wordy delivery of Chris Bailey grab the headlines,  but the sharp post-punky soundscapes are driven by sinuous, riffy bass lines and shimmering chimey guitar … right up my street! What a great live band. We, and a busy Mash House crowd, loved it all and left very happy! Shout out too, for the promising support band Isabella Strange … must watch out for.

Attended by George & Andy
