Adz Carters write up of our previous performance in the passport to airlie comp!
Bluesy funk trio The Reo Fenders kept things movin’ (and groovin’) at a smooth and steady pace, boasting raspy blues vocals, great riffs and solos, chunky funky bass, and oh so precise drumming. Said drumming was proven straight away with ‘The Ciggy Song’, which featured wipeout style drums backing up some sensational surf style rock. ‘The Stab Song’, containing some great blues jams, was not a song about stabbing someone, but could very well have been about stabbing the listeners in the ears with some killer riffs that incorporated distortion to great effect.
Not enough can be said about this extremely talented guitarist, but the rhythm section couldn’t be faulted either, as the pounding of the drums and the thick groove of the bass showed that The Reo Fenders are the sum of all parts. All three of these musos make up one incredibly tight band, the style of which was captured oh so well in the blues swing of the last song, which was just as catchy as the common cold.
