Sun 6 May – Dundee Variety Club Debut
Last night saw me hobble along to the Reading Rooms in Dundee with friends and brother in tow to witness the return of Fife's cutest band.
Before they graced the stage however, 3 Dundonians and a Fin took to the stage, otherwise known as Kaput
Having been previously exposed to 2 of the members in other bands (Bassist Mike from The A Forest
and guitarist/ vocalist Burny from the Fall of the Boss Koala
), it was an interesting contrast to what I might have expected! Their set was short, yet brilliantly executed. Comparisons that came into my head include the Arcade Fire
and I'm guessing they've been listening to the new Modest Mouse
album as there were hints of influence from them too. Which is no bad thing.
Over all, a great debút set, although I wanted more! The Reading Room acoustic wasn't very kind to them unfortunately, particularly the vocals.
Next up were the (incredibly!) young band Something Broken
from Forfar. …
