White Noise Edinburgh 29/10/04 review


The gig started early.Just gone 7pm and the strains of the keyboard
intro to a very familiar tune fills the air. A quick guitar lick and
Tarot Woman is off and running. Doogie is very impressive indeed.
The vocals are really excellent. The Mostly Autumn guys are playing
for all their worth.
Too Late for Tears, carries on in the same vein. Very tight musical
performance and Doogie really belting out the lyrics. Really
impressive.
Wolf to the Moon complete with slide guitar intro, and Bryan makes a
fairly passable attempt at the solo. Question the Gods is introduced
as from a White Noise album, and is a rock tune in a similar way to
material on Stranger in us All.
Bryan gets the intro to Black Masquerade spot on, and again the
musicians are incredibly tight. The ending is not as long as rainbow
versions, but it still rocks out big time.
Doogie introduces the band, remarking the Ian Jennings looks
remarkably like Don Airey. The it's Ariel. Doogie is awesome in
this, improvising towards the end where Candy's vocal refrain would
be. Bryan plays a gentle low key solo and the the scream when it
comes is earth shaking.
Hall of the Mountain King. Now this one was the best song of the
night, Bryan nailed the solo, Doogie really went for it and the rest
of the band supported in the best way possible. Fantastic stuff,
really took the set to another level entirely.
They finished with 1 Way to Heaven, an old Midnight Blue tune.
really nice to hear it again after all these years. Marvelous stuff
from the whole band again. And that was it, a little over 45 minutes
and good night and thanks.
It was really good to see Doogie on stage again, he really was in
fine voice. But even more impressive was the band, really tight and
well rehearsed. I suppose given that they are in essence Mostly
Autumn sans the girls, it is hardly a suprise they were so tight.
Certainly has me looking forward to the Mostly Autumn gig at the
same venue next month.

Afterwards we met up for a beer and watched a bit of Uriah Heep,
then after we were chucked out the club at 10pm so the dance music
could start. Retire to an Irish Bar next door, and pressed on into
the night.

Don't suppose the tapes were running? (offically or other wise?) emoticon

In Carlisle Doogie introduced them as "Mostly Autumn... unfortunately not the good-looking ones" emoticon

They played for an hour in Carlisle. Sounds like Edinburgh had an early curfew that cut it short.
