Slick’s Kitchen - live @ Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh, 7/12/08
It must be the bane of an opening bands life. Getting your stage time bumped up to 7pm at an hours notice. On a Saturday night. And so it was, thanks to an on the ball PR fella, that i was one of eight people to see them take the stage. And two of them left during the first song. Which was their loss.
For live Slick’s Kitchen really rock hard, much more so than on record. They seemed to take the large empty space in front of them in relatively good spirit, giving shout outs to nobody and encouraging the self same nobody to come down the front. The new song "Hail To Yesterday" was encouraging fitting in snugly alongside the three minute biker punk clatter of their other tunes.
Fans of The Almighty will find a lot to like here, and with the crowd swollen to double figures by the end they probably made, ooh, two new fans. Well at least one, if the merchandise stand was anything to go by. The best 25 minutes of the day by far. Hell, having passed the CD along for review to an unappreciative colleague, I even went and bought one. Shame all those Damned fans missed out.
Oh, and their strobe enhanced version of "Ace Of Spades" kills. Although someone should definitely rethink playing Lynyrd Skynyrd before a punk gig.
