Holy Coves – Peruvian Mistake

By |January 20th, 2013|4 Comments

From the opening wah-wah feedback and bass run of Let’s Go, you realise that Holy Coves are not some 2-bit bedroom outfit. That guitar screams at you and drowns you before ending far sooner than you want it to. This Peruvian Mistake does lend itself to Oasis in a Kasabianic kind of way, which sounds absurd when you consider Oasis made a career out of ripping off The Rutles. That’s a lazy portrayal of a band who have pockets filled with riffs, melodies and thumping beats. Play it loud and educate you ignorant neighbours.
All Around You (which was a single from July ’11), again stops sooner than you’d wish, with all it’s chanting glory and it’s good to dig rock/pop/indie songs under 3 minutes that are straight to the point.

“Thank you, goodnight” – announced Rosary‘s singer as we walked through the door. Gutted! What are bands doing playing this early!? I had seen them a couple of years ago under the guise of Y Cer, and they do possess a quality that all of tonight’s band have, making this a very strong line up. Of their set, Gav Malone said, ‘The night was really good, with a really good vibe with a room full, which doesn’t always happen at Rascals. We were very pleased with our set which opened the night, and received some really great feedback from a new crowd for us.’
