Hookworms, Live In Manchester
Venue: Sound Control, Manchester
Spaced-out warbles from these Yorkshire lads.
Opening tonight’s gig, Virginia Wing keep being thrown off their stride. From frowns of consternation on stage as well as consistent fluffs by their drummer it seems like there’s an issue with monitoring, and intermittently there’s a burst of digital noise and the mic winks out, leaving singer Alice Merida Richards stranded and frustrated. It’s a shame, for when they do manage to sneak a song in uninterrupted, out comes confident, engaging modern psych.
