A wonderful night in a criminally under populated B.S.C. saw Vincent Vincent and the Villains give a master class in how to get an audience going.
First up was The brute chorus who gave a storming performance that took no prisoners the single Chateau (limited edition of 500 get yours now) gives a good account of them but you really have to see them live for the full effect. The Zappa-esk lead singers fab!
Cheeky cheeky and the nosebleeds had perhaps the oddest supporting singer Ive seen in a while – Imagine Chas Smash crossed with Ian Curtis and youre almost there.
VV+theVs didnt have to win the crowd over we were all there on the strength of the wonderful LP Gospel Bombs (got my vinyl copy signed by the boys thanks to Will Church the nicest bass player Ive ever met) and they didnt disappoint.
What doesnt come across so much on the LP is how good the drummer is Hes Very Very Good! Vincent has wonderful guitar poses with his (authentic looking) shiny red 50s guitar a more natural front man you cant imagine. Cinema, Blue Boy, On my own, Killing Time, pretty girl everyone a winner. My only criticism was that they didnt play Sweet Girlfriend Ill just have to wait for next time.
Catch these Vs whilst theyre flying high
