i've tried to hold back everytime i have the urge to write music reviews, but the Enfield Advertiser is slowly crawling itself towards being something like up to date and possibly have another 3 or 4 articles i have submitted left to print.
although this could actually take something like 8 weeks to knock out so i am presuming that a couple of the pieces may have fallen by the wayside as they become less relevant as time passes, but we'll see.
i'm desperate to open peoples eyes to some more new music and shall definetly be writing a piece on Janelle Monae who i saw at Koko on wednesday (thanks Atlantic Records, who came through in the end!!)
and this wednesday also saw the publication of the following piece, my little expose on some of Enfield's covers bands that do the rounds, proving that i will try my hardest to make sure that i have reported on any and every type of musical goings on in our borough!
Tribute acts are covering all bases
from Enfield Advertiser 08.09.10
Cover bands tend to get a lot of bad press...
That is if they get any press at all.
And this is something I began to consider when talking to my cousin's husband last christmas.
He plays drums in a glam rock tribute act, and I swear he didn't slip me any money to mention his band.
And I'll admit that I don't often have a lot of time for cover bands, it seems to be the reserve of dodgy pub gigs, I would much rather be sniffing out new talent than hearing some oldies being belted out to a room of boozed up punters.
So let’s take a look at some of the best on offer.
Admittedly I am slightly biased towards Lipstick Torpedo, the aforementioned glam rockers that are rarely seen out of shiny spandex, frightfull wigs and occasional fishnets.
