The Fulford Arms is a great little pub and with it being just around the corner from my cousin Diggers house, it would have been rude not to go and see a band as good as The Drink there. Tonight there were 3 great bands for the grand price of £6 – you can’t beat that!
Missing Kids are a local York band who make a hell of a noise for just 2 people. The drumming was powerfully awesome! One to watch.
Frog are from New York “And here we are playing in Old York” – Another Drums and guitar combo with some great tunes and an obvious joy in what they do – reminded us of ‘They Might Be Giants’
After 2 duo’s, a 3-piece band seemed a bit decadent but the extra bass grooves that The Drink produced were well worth it. Their songs drive along at a pace and then go to places you don’t expect. Comparisons have been made to Cate Le Bon and that’s no bad thing. When the band got into a riff, Dearbhla Minogue’s guitar playing was just fantastic. Give the new album a try.
