The Frowning Clouds & The Len Price 3 The Blues Kitchen Camden Nov 25th

Fantastic gig on Friday night at a packed out Blues Kitchen with The Len Price 3 and Australian band The Frowning Clouds, who were over for their first show in the U.K. First up were the Medway Delta's finest, The Len Price 3, who stormed through a selection of their perfectly formed garage pop nuggets. One catchy hook filled track after another, the only pause being when an enthusiastic young lady took to the stage to dance along and remove her clothing...The band has that kind of effect I guess! Highlight tonight was new track "Praying Mantis" and the last encore, the wrestling and Big Daddy tribute "Shirley Crabtree"...the best live band around at the moment, no contest, "Easy...Easy...!" Here are some photos of their set:

 The Frowning Clouds took the stage full of enthusiasm and for a band so young, they oozed confidence and cool. Their songs are retro masterpieces with plenty of catchy guitar riffs, reminding me of The Standells and early bluesy Stones. They also bring to mind Billy Childish's Milkshakes and The Brian Jonestown Massacre with their authentic vintage Sixities sound. I spoke briefly to some of the band before their set, lovely guys too, so I wish them good luck on their European adventures and recommend you check out their excellent album "Listen Closelier". In the meantine here's the opening song of their very first U.K. performance!



The Len Price 3 will play at The Bull & Gate in Kentish Town on Friday December 09th

The Frowning Clouds will be in France for dates in Montpellier on December 01st, Dijon on the 02nd and Paris on the 03rd. They will then play the Purple Weekend in Leon, Spain on December 04th.
