Mis-led took the stage at 8.45pm, and immediately I was time-warped back to 1977, the early days of punk, where the teenagers formed bands and played fast, catchy songs written with anger and frustration from the stagnent situation of the times. Starting off with their version of Nirvana's "Smells like teen spirit" and playing another ten songs, which included a blistering version of The Sex Pistols "God Save The Queen", Lead-Singer Charlie was born to entertain. If you get the chance, go and see this band.  (
Room 101 hit the stage at 9.40pm, with a point to prove, after the last outing at Marlborough Town Football Club. Starting off with the usual Classic "New Generation" and also introducing three new songs into the set, they rapidly ploughed there way through 12 short fast catchy numbers, including a cover of The Damned's "New Rose" and The Ramones "Blitzkreig Bop" and "Let's Dance" All in all, a far better performance than back in July, and it show's that they've learnt from the mistakes and got better for them. (
At 10.30, Throwing Paper Aeroplanes took to the stage. This band has won numerous battle of the band competitions, so it was obvious that they would be a polished act, although they claimed not to have gigged since winning the Marlborough Town Football Club Battle of the Bands back in November. Think Blink 182 etc, and you know what to expect. (
In summary, on tonight's performances, any of these bands are worth checking out. Gig dates are on their Myspace sites advertised above. If you love live music, do yourselves a favour and go see these three......
