Great live review from The Nottingham Post!
SKAM At Nottingham Rescue Rooms Thursday 12th May 2016
It seemed to be the Night of the Bassists, as all three bands on the line-up boasted some of the most charismatic bass players out there.
Firstly there was Matt Gilmore playing for the openers, SKAM, a 3 piece hard rock outfit hailing from Leicester, who delivered a cracking set and went down really well with the impressive number of early arriver’s who caught their set. Due to the stage set up, with The Treatment’s drum kit already on the riser, it was also as treat to get a great view of the drummer, Neal Hill, who is possibly the coolest maths teacher around! Guitarist and lead vocalist, Steve Hill, has a classic hard rock voice with outstanding range and he can really bend a string when he plays, as proved during “Massacre”. Their slower track, “The Wire”, and the closer, “No Lies” were also stand outs in their short set. Definitely a band to look out for on any line-up.
Thanks guys, see you at the next show!
