Black Cat Bone
Interview, and EP Review
- Gig review by CC Badass
Support bands were Dixie Fried, and Al Shields & The Delahayes.
I missed the first band, but caught Dixie Fried. They were the perfect band to open for BCB, and I will definitely be seeing them again!
This is my first time seeing Black Cat Bone, and the most important thing that I can say is that this was a very special gig! For a band that has been around only a few years, they sound like they've been around for so much longer. Their sound is heavy, blues-based rock, and they take you to a place deep down south where it's hot and sweaty and you find yourself instinctively howlin'.
The highlights of the evening were definitely the harmonica and the slide guitar... so that pretty much covers all the songs. Morning Light was the first song of their set, to get you shuffling into that groove that brings you deeper and deeper ... yeah, there's the intensity of demons, wolves, Punks & Pushers, and lots of grindy dirty fun stuff. There's also damn sexy female vocals on their newest song, Coming For You. Get Your Kicks is a true hit! I love horns of all kinds, and it was a smart addition of the trumpet in their version of the Slim Harpo song, Hipshake! Perfect, solid drums, bass, and guitar in Peace Of Mind! This band has three of my favourite things: harmonica, slide guitar, and horns. Then there's the intense, raw heat of Ross Craig's bluesy voice!
Black Cat Bone is definitely a band to watch! Thank you guys! You left me deeply satisfied, and weak in the knees!
