Just witnessed your
best live gig?..send us a review!
LOS PACAMINOS - The Borderline, London
28th March 2003
Los Pacaminos are a UK based Tex Mex band who feature amongst their ranks
singer Paul Young (a very successful solo artist throughout the 80’s) and
recent 10 Questions interviewee, guitarist Jamie Moses (Brian May/SAS
Band/Pretenders/Bob Geldof etc). Playing to a sell out crowd, the
seven-piece band just about fitted onto the tiny Borderline stage. I have
never heard anything by the band before and was pleasantly surprised at how
much I enjoyed the gig!
The band play mainly original material, which has a very Ry Cooder/the
Band slant in parts plus songs such as ‘Highway Patrol’ reminded me of early
ZZ Top material. This was also a good chance for Jamie Moses to rock out a
little on guitar. The whole band is very talented, with four of the band
taking lead vocals on various songs. The instrumentals are also very strong
and had many of the audience dancing away. Encore time saw ‘La Bamba’
getting an energetic airing.
If the band play near you, go along for a very enjoyable evening and a
chance to marvel at the guitar skills of Jamie Moses, one of the most
underated guitarists in the UK at the moment.
