If you don't already know White Heat put on gigs every Tuesday at Madam JoJos n London. You are guaranteed and good night of live music every time, as it is very obvious that a lot of effort goes into selecting the bands. The venue and sound system are great and drinks prices wont be beaten anywhere near by which is a bonus.
Tonight was a collaboration with Mint Magazine who took over the early part of he evening before the club. First up were Joey Four which is the solo project of the front man Joseph Predergrast aka Tubelord
Tonight was like taking a time machine back into the Seattle grunge scene. Short punchy songs full of angst and attitude, messy boy fringes and scuffed up trainers. It all reminds me of when I first fell in love with music and I look forward to seeing them again soon.
Hailing from London Evans the Death are a four piece who provided us with melodic noisy nuggets that keep us wanting more. They have received lots of air time on Radio 1 and 6 Music as well as being John Kennedy’s “Exposure Big One” on XFM.
Katherine Whitaker delivered unique and enchanting vocals, twisting and turning through the emotions, acid attacks, and DM's sprinkled with gold sequins. They had enough power pop songs here to fill a well rounded set and also evident by listening to their debit album.
Last on were Best Friends who travel led down from Sheffield for the gig. As with the rest of the line up, they were also impressive and there was no way that their very catchy dancey, indie, surf pop songs weren't going to get you jiggling.
They looked accomplished and had a good stage presence about them in front of a backdrop of twinkling star type lights peaking through Madam JoJo`s dark drapes at the rear of the stage.
They have released their 2nd EP via Art and Hard records called "Throwing Up" (Nice) which you can listen to below.
