The Grazing Saints, Wreck Age, Kamensko @ The Blueberry 1 May 2015

The Grazing Saints, Wreck-Age, Kamensko at The Blueberry Music House, Norwich 1 May 2015

This gig was put on by Joe Quinn of The Grazing Saints and featured a really strong line up in the curious venue that is the Blueberry Music House. A place I have some affection for and have seen so many great gigs at. It currently feels neglected by its owners and somewhat run down … as a rock music venue however, it works brilliantly. Dirty, grungey guitar rock in a home that can accommodate the huge riffs and very loud sound. It was another superb night!

Kamensko were opening, a band I’ve been wanting to catch since I first became aware of them a few months back. They play with great enthusiasm and have a massive sound, strong guitars, excellent drumming and a singer with a really interesting voice, quite dark at times and with hints of Ian Curtis, as did all three bands tonight. I liked them a lot, one of the loudest bands I’ve heard in a pub and great fun.

Wreck Age totally blew me away when I saw them here for Loveloudly a few weeks back and was eager to hear them again. They were just as good, totally looking and sounding the part and their cover of Joy Division’s Shadowplay was immense! I am really impressed by this band, their live shows are fantastic.

With the clock nearing 11pm the wonderful Grazing Saints opened their set, also sounding big and strong, Joe’s menacing onstage presence and intensity absolutely compelling whilst the ever steady Paul and Mick on bass and drums provide the perfect counter to this. Excellent band, nobody wanted them to stop.
