John Grant I rock up to The Symphony Hall looking forward to seeing Susanne Sundfoer support the every charming John Grant. Unfortunately she has taken the night off to rest her voice and instead we are treated to Cate Le Bon. This welsh singer songwriter has an incredible band behind her, constantly changing instruments and creating an incredible sound. She has a beautiful and haunting voice that seems to capture those of us in the crowd who arrived early.

Cate Le Bon Three albums on, and despite work with the likes of Neon Neon (Gruff Rhys) and Manic Street Preachers, Cate Le Bon is still, alas, a well kept secret, but for how long? Fortunately for us punters in the meantime, this means that we can still get to see her perform in small and intimate venues like The Hare and Hounds.

Cate Le Bon Essentially you have to think Fairport Convention meets The Cowboy Junkies and Jefferson Airplane with Blue Cheer providing the chemical hospitality. Call it retro existential cosmetic angst if you will. Cate Le Bon, on electric guitar/vocals, sports a Mary Quant iconic 60s black hair bob and swirly black cloak. The discordant, jangling, vibrato keyboards evoking Country Joe & The Fish circa 1970. Her dreamy beat-pop and precise vocal articulation was a canny, decoy ruse of Welsh wizardry because suddenly the band unleashed a chaotic, septic wasps’ nest of psychedelic guitar riff mayhem. Wonderful.
