A couple of Liddy Reviews

11 July, 2012

These reviews are from the Jonathan Boulet support gig with Wolf Cub and Liddy at the The Metro Theatre, Sydney, on June 30.

Andrew Yorke writes:

…sporting cycling jerseys, the sextet perform stompy, churny, shouty, country-tinged, whiskey-soaked blues… the audience is left to their own devices in the longish gaps between songs, creating a relaxed vibe akin to watching a group of friends jam in a loungeroom.

Jessie Hunt writes:

…appeared a little disinterested in the whole performance, with their bass player spending most of the set with her back to the audience. However, the band’s incredibly impressive cover of the Bob Dylan track The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll made up for everything…

Despite being stylistically all over the shop, every single track on the record was dynamite. This would be no mean feat were it simply a ten track record but this thing is fourteen tracks deep and not once did they drop the ball. Whether it’s the funeral dirge that is ‘Black Death 1349′, the hook laden ‘Hunger Song’ or the nine minute acoustic ballad ‘Deep Water’, one can hear a strength in songwriting that transcends genre or mood.

21 January, 2011

It’s really fucking messy… Drunk dudes are yelling out, “Play ‘Blood’!”… They play it, of course; second last song, and it’s great. I wonder if it means anything to them anymore, or whether any such thing has been wrung out through repetition.
