Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
Borderline London 23 September 2009
Pistols are a band that I've seen five times over the last couple of years
and they vastly improve with every performance. Hailing from Leeds
these beatnik warriors are what 70's proto-punks Edgar Broughton Band
would've sounded like if they were put through a woodchipper machine along
with Budgie and Motorhead.
one release under their gunslinging belts, the self titled debut on Lee
Dorian's Rise Above Records, the band sound a whole lot fresher and
heavier live than they do on that studio release.
the first time a London crowd got to see new guitarist Bill Steer who has
replaced Chris Rodgers who unfortunately had to leave the band to bring up
his new offspring. Steer has brought more of a metal feel to the
band with solos ricocheting off the walls.
the band will be back in the studio soon because judging by the new songs
performed tonight including 'Living In Sin Again' we should be in for a
treat. Cathedral's Lee Dorrian was here tonight to see his signings as
were members of Angel Witch.
time and check out the bearded Oxfam vested rockers because Gentlemans
Pistols didn't fire a single blank tonight.
