Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
WARRIOR SOUL Camden Underworld, London
When Guns 'N
Roses set the world alight with Appetite For Destruction, record companies
were scrambling around to find the next big thing , a band with a new
sound, a new dimension.
Geffen Records thought they had hit gold dust yet again when they made Warrior
Soul sign on the dotted line. With their political views and apocalyptic outlook
Geffen and critics alike thought they had a new band with a new voice and a new
vision, but that soon got all clouded over with the onset of grunge and the Soul
had been left behind in the last decade, dead century.
It is with
those distant memories of witnessing the band headline London's Astoria in
1990 that I too lost interest in the band, only crossing thier path on the
odd occasion when I saw them live but spent too much time at the bar to
take take any real interest to what was actually going on the stage itself
19 years and Kory Clarke has assembled a new band with once again a new
vision and this time a new generation of fans. Not many bands can bring
together so many glamsters, thrashers and mentalists under one roof.
opening cries of 'We are the government' singer Kory Clarke had the
audience in the palm of his hand. 'Wasteland' soon got the moshers going
and from then on this was a high energy performance.
John H and bass player Janne Jarvis firmly established and looking
comfortable in the band and giving 100% on the likes of 'Love
Destruction.' Dedicated to the Swedish police 'Fuck The Pigs' was a nice
little ditty for everyone to singalong to.
My faith has
once again been restored in Kory and the boys, this was a great delivery,
and if you keep at it long enough, then things do come full circle.
Warrior Soul's greatest hour is yet to come.
