Best Gig Of The Year So Far

Stiff and I went to see Nick Waterhouse and his band at The Wah Wah Hut a couple of Thursday's ago. The best hour and a quarter I have had for a long time. It was slightly disappointing that the gig was not a sell-out, in fact the back of the room behind the sound desk was roped off so it would have been just over half full which really was a shame because the band played an absolutely blinding set which got everybody present grooving along to the cool retro but still incredibly fresh R&B sounds.  Also I have to point out that Miss Paula Henderson has to be the coolest saxophonist this side of John Coltrane.

The track posted is the b-side of the last single and a Ty Segall cover.

Nick Waterhouse - It #3

And below is one of the many highlights of the gig a cover of Pass The Hatchet by Roger and The Gypsies, a rare as hen's teeth 45 released in 1965 on the Seven B label but was available in full for the first time on the Essential Seven B collection released a coupe of years ago. I think that this will nbeed to be posted in the near future.
