7’s second ‘New whistle test’ evening had only ‘The:Foot:Clan‘ performing, as the other band pulled out due to flu. With a name like that, you’d expect a Podiatrist to love this band……but it wasn’t really my cup of tea. Fronted by a hugely talented lead singer (who was born for the stage) they could be going places – but not the places I’m going.
The evening started with the synth player throwing a tantrum about the sound, then the compare did the unfunniest stand up routine I’ve ever had the misfortune to sit through. If he’s going to be a regular then I’m not.
The four (sl cliched in their baseball caps and long shorts) guys who provided the beats, tunes and scratching were obviously into it – but the lead singer was the true original spark of the act.
