The Correspondents Having formed in 2007 it’s taken a whole 7 years for The Correspondents (DJ Chucks and singer/dancer Mr Bruce) to get around to releasing their debut album. But then again Mr Bruce (aka Ian Bruce) also has a career as an artist to keep him busy so we can kind of forgive them. Besides that given the energy that he expends during tonight’s gig I reckon he probably needs to lie down for a month or six every time they play live...

Arthur Brown Arthur Brown and his band take the stage with masks and facepaint, as their organist plays a whimsical rendition of ‘Tea for Two’. This morphs into the more sinister ‘Nightmare’, a track from his famous psychedelic debut album ‘The Crazy World of Arthur Brown’. Like many of Brown’s tracks it has a heavy Hammond organ sound backing his wailing vocals from the fires of hell. Not surprisingly, Arthur’s set tonight features a number of songs from this album including, of course, ‘Fire’.

Kasabian December is a great time for going to a gig. Christmas is a coming, everyones in the mood for a party, the beers are flowing and if you're going to see the right band then you're in for a belter. So that poses the question... Were Kasabian the right band, to whip the crowd into a frenzy, to get everyone singing in response to the front mans instruction and generally get things rocking? Abso-blummin-lutely!!! There's no-one better.

Kasabian There aren’t many superlatives that haven’t been used to describe Kasabian over the past year, especially when it comes to their live performance. In our last review of them at their De Montfort Hall gig we described them as “an enormous sound and euphoric uplifting performances combining the pomp of the Stone Roses and Primal Scream and the showmanship of Faithless” We were in for a treat.

Kasabian Kasabian are quite simply one of the best live bands around. Their enormous sound and euphoric uplifting performances combine the pomp of the Stone Roses and Primal Scream and the showmanship of Faithless. Put simply they rock! Thus it was that Gig Junkies Head honcho and I, found ourselves at the salubrious surround of De Montfort Hall, in Leicester – Kasabian’s home town – on the opening night of their summer tour to celebrate the release of their new album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Coincidentally it was the same season that their beloved Leicester City were crowned Division 1 Champions. It was gonna be messy!
