Live Reviews:

(more to follow, as this site is updated)

Running Horse, Nottingham UK -- Guy plays every conceivable blues style over the coure of the evening, alternating between National steel, acoustic and electric guitars. He plays lots of slide and is one of the toughetst and yet subtlest guitarists I've ver seen. The high quality of his playing coupled with his ferocious attack put me in mind of the superb American band Delta Moon, recent visitors to the venue. Guy's voice is great -- easy to listen to and he delivers the lyrics with great clarity and, yes, passion. they are really worth hearing, too, being thoughtful, often wryly funny and of course musically catchy, spellbinding, hypnotic, etc. I can imagine one or two big stars having a crack at this material. I'll go out on a limb and say Guy is possibly the best writer of new blues since Larry Garner. His band? Gawd, where do `I start? Janos on keyboards was a phenomenal blues player, alert to every single thing that the otehers - especially Guy - did. He provided a real musical foil for Guy's guitar which took the music to considerable heights of excitement. The bassist Brendan was a rock. Yes, I know it's a cliche but it's true. He had the range of skills associated with Jack Bruce and as for the drummer (Neil) he was awesome -- how can someone play as powerfully as him and yet blend in so unobtrusively? I've seen a lot of bands over th eyears and this band were one of the very best. Seriously, they were that good, ask anybody who was there, and do catch them live if you can. Dave Kingsbury
