Yellowgroove @ Cellar Bar 17 DecAnother Saturday this time, yet another Yellowgroove gig. They start with another great rendition of Son Of A Working Man. There’s a little interlude as Simon announces he’s going to spend Christmas in a cave, and introduces a song about caves, which has a very Richard Thomson folk-inspired riff to start on the acoustic. The rest of the song is good too, I think its a new one on me. They play a genuinely new song after covering Stuck In The Middle and suffering some lead flaff. Witches Wood is along the contemplative line, with plenty of space for some subtle chord and lead work, and some nicely disharmonious accidentals.

Brothers Grimmer @ Inferno 17 DecI leave after Loving Man to waste 30 minutes fighting through BIC traffic to reach On The Rocks, only to find they’ve shut up shop – relatively early starts for them, they’re finished by 11pm 😦 I console myself by catching a little bit of Brothers Grimmer at the Inferno, they are as rockin’ as ever, though I only stay for a few songs before heading on to see a friend who’s hotel sitting for the night.
