King Mud, Chasing Creation @ Jug Jaw’s Beat Club 25 July 2016 Hot Raisin @ The Bicycle Shop 24 July 2016

I had a great time at Bedfords Crypt for the latest Jug Jaw’s Beat Club night in conjunction with Punk Rock Blues.  It’s not often one gets to see such a low down dirty punky blues band in a venue like this through vintage 60s amps and speakers.  Chasing Creation opened the evening with an impressive set and to have King Mud play here in the Crypt was a great honour. Their first UK gig (one of just two!) it was powerful and visceral, pure raw energy and extremely loud. It was fantastic and these guys are the real deal!  Featuring members of Black Diamond Heavies and Left Lane Cruiser they delivered 90 minutes of some of the filthiest punk rock blues you are ever likely to hear.  I miss the house band – Lank Smith and the Pythons – but these nights are still amazing. You can read more about the gig on a review I did for Outline.

The previous evening I had the pleasure of seeing Hot Raisin not once but twice, first at Howlback Hum in the Playhouse Bar, and a little later on at the Sunday Sessions, put on by Tilting Sky in The Bicycle Shop.  They were delightful as ever and treated us to a beautiful new song called Track and Field as well as the relatively recent Whiskey Ginger.  Exciting directions their songwriting is taking them in.

I also caught the extraordinary Mssr Mortimer at Howlback Hum with personal lyrics delivered over four percussionists including a hand drum.

 

Tuesday night at the NAC was Summertime Blues night with Soho Blues, Brass Tacks/Highway 47, and a rare chance to see the brilliant Ida Mae.
