So on Saturday I popped along to the Notting Hill Arts Club for their free Saturday show ‘Rota’ which was this week put on by Drowned In Sound (the event is arranged on alternate weeks by DiS and Silver Rocket).

This week saw host to a good lineup (so I was told) featuring Calories, Pulled Apart By Horses and Copy Haho. Sadly, Calories car broke down so they didn’t turn up but the other two bands more than made up for it.

Nicely warmed up from playing thr Camden Crawl just that morning, these guys from Leeds were absolutely fantastic! Loud guitars, a great stage presence and a topless, tattooed drummer with a beard, they had everything. And I say stage presence in the loosest way possible as they didn’t stick to the stage all that often, wandering around the crowd as they played and bringing the mic stand into the middle of the slightly gobsmacked crowd as well.

And their songs weren’t too bad either..

This Scottish four piece were a solid indie pop band that had a few really good songs in their repertoire and gave a solid indie pop performance but after PABH, this seemed a bit of an anticlimax. Nothing wrong with their set or songs but they may have been better going on first on the night as they lacked the energy that the other band had in abundance.

Picked up their EP on the day (as well as PABH’s) and it’s a good little EP.. well worth looking out for!
