listening man

The Bees @ The Mermaid, 16th July 2007

This band are great musicians. And some of them play six or seven different instruments during the course of the evening. Or is that just showing off? The first half is a straight run through their latest album, Octopus, then there's a selection of stuff from the earlier CDs. Quite a mix of styles. I particularly like the soul-ly stuff they play in the second half. They also appeared at the Tropicalia event I went to last year.
