Some Videos Wot I’ve Been Watching #2

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

I saw these guys at the Flowerpot in Camden a few months back and thought they were one of the most fun acts I’d seen in a long time. Every now and again I give their album a listen and it’s impossible not to dance or clap along. This video shows a wee bit of just how good they are.

The Tallest Man On Earth

Another artist I love and have fallen in love with even more since seeing him live and this is easily one of the best tracks off the album. Want/need a second album from him soon!

Oxygen Thief

One of the more unique artists I’ve seen in recent times, I really enjoy his acousto-metal sound and can’t wait to hear some of the new stuff he’s penning at the moment.

Johnny Flynn

Yet to see this guy live but I only discovered his album a few months ago and it’s really been growing on me. Am sure I’ll catch him in the near future..

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis @ The Flowerpot – 02/07

Another day, another Flowerpot gig. I’d not heard of this group before but they came highly recommended so I went along with no idea of what to expect, apart from the fact that they were an old school ‘rockabilly’ band.

Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, themselves, are all siblings aged 16-21 and live fairly localy, coming from Kentish Town and last year released their self titled album, which they recorded in their own front room.

With all this in mind, I headed to The Flowerpot which turned out to have a good crowd of locals, regulars and the odd teddyboy. After a few drinks, the band finally took to the stage in full ’50s gear, accompanied by their dad on backing guitar and their mum on the double bass.

The band themselves were pretty special with their ’50s rock and roll sound that got just about everyone in the venue dancing in what little room was available. What they played was nothing new, obviously, but they played it with such energy, it was impossible not to enjoy it. The three main band members were also constantly swapping instruments, giving each song a slightly different feel; between the three of them, they covered vocals, guitars, drums, harmonicas, pianos, keyboards, ukeleles, banjos and xylophones.

There were a few problems with sound levels for them but that was no surprise with the amount of instruments they were switching between. On top of all the instruments they played, they were also joined on stage by Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton on trumpet.

Despite the overwhelming heat, it was a great night and it’s incredible to think how young the three of them are. Their set also seemed to go on and on as the crowd loved it so much; I’m sure they played about 4 encores! Best of luck to them on tour this summer as they support Coldplay!
