Tiger Moth Tales at the Boston Music Rooms, London - live review
Venue: Boston Music Rooms, London
Red Bazar and The Dec Burke Band support Peter Jones' project in London
It may be cold, damp and dreary outside tonight, but genuine warmth greets opening act Red Bazar as they hit the stage to start a second night of varied prog line-ups in Tufnell Park.
The combined talents of guitarist Andy Wilson, drummer Paul Comerie and bassist Mick Wilson are clear right from the sweeping symphonic rock and hard-hitting prog metal set bookends of Queen Of The Night Part 1 And 2 and the likes of Calling Her On from last year’s Tales From The Bookcase album. With keyboardist Gary Marsh on a temporary leave of absence, attention is drawn inextricably to recent addition Peter Jones, who is centre stage. The band certainly sound great, there is no denying that, but a little self-editing and some more accessible hooks might make them into a more immediate live proposition.
