Rock Regeneration Review

We would like to thank Ross and David Chinery from Rock Regeneration for the following review from our recent gig supporting Mr Fungas at Chaplins and The Cellar Bar In Boscombe, Bournemouth. This gig gave us the opportunity to play a set which was mainly originals and we really had a great time.

 

Next up are local Glam Rock/Hair Metallers “27 Days”. This is a complete contrast to what came before and these guys know how to Rock! They set out their stall early with “Welcome to the Party” with their feel-good vibe. Despite their youth, they have studied this genre long and hard. Every cliche is in there but by no means are they boring. “Tell The Devil” comes next as Jordan (vox/rhythm) stretches his vocal chords. His range is decent while having an air of great confidence. They pay homage to The Darkness and give a fair rendition of “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”. The falsettos aren’t quite there yet, but given time they will be. “Speed” comes next as the band grow in confidence. Phil (drums) has fast, powerful hands and is intricate in equal measure, notably on the kettle drum. “Stevie” though takes centre stage with shapeshifting and noodling duties. “Dom” (bass) looks somewhat cramped at the end of the stage but is no less important. “It’s So Easy” seems somewhat poignant as these guys just grow into their set. Jordan’s vocals become harder and harsher in equal measure towards the end but there’s no let-up. Penultimate track “Life on the Edge” precedes a Rock statement of sorts. “Live Fast, Die Young”. These hair-metallers have youth on their side and a clutch of great songs and all the elements going forward. My only criticism would be the wearing of your idols T-shirts – create your own identity lads, avoid clichÈ.
