Bell X1 and The Upper Room

Bell X1 hail from the Emerald Isle and are an established rock act with a small but fanatical following. The Wedgewood Rooms at Southsea was the place to be last night - where else of course!

The Upper Room are a Brighton based 4 piece with beautiful pop melodies.

There is a remote chance I may have posted a very brief review on Music to Grow Old to.

This looks like it was an exciting night. You captured the high energy in your photos. Thanks!

Mussolini - thank you for enquiring, I'm adjusting to my new less stressful days. That gig last night ended at 11:45pm which would have been a problem had I been requird to wake at the crack of dawn next day :)

Boulies - I took lots but these are the pick. I don't mind the blurring too much it shows the movement.

This looks like it was sooo much fun!

Hey, I finally got to hear the Artic Monkeys! They are wonderful! Thanks to you, I've looked them up. They hit the states a few weeks ago and I was ready.

So, I'll go search out your review of this band on your other blog.

Thanks bro!

Always wanted a Rickenbacker.

I just read the review there. A gem!

Neetee - Arctic Monkeys are pure British rock with a no nonsense "take us or leave us attitude." Raw but intelligent.

Bell X1 are long established warriors on the lower club scene but I only discovered them a year ago. I like that the lyrics are so damn clever and they have great guitar lines and meloidies.

R&E - I have a Gibson Les Paul but yes, Rickenbackers are special too.

SilvermOOn - thank you! I tried to keep that one short and sweet, no point in rambling, we might as well listen to the songs!

remote maybe but bloody good as a mtter of fact.

Perfect Virgo said...

CJ - these are a quality act whose songs are wry witty statements. They are highly accomplished as musicians and I'm pleased you appreciated it.


Looks like fun.
I see you,

Yes, "SAS" is preferred by most and definitely the method of choice for reviews. One can easily read between the lines, even without "music" glasses.

Perfect Virgo said...

SilvermOOn - SAS is good! Opera glasses optional.
