Yardbirds Club, Grimsby 27 May 2012

Outside of established festivals, the touring climate is an unfavourable one for melodic rock bands, and it is small wonder that most of the new releases in the genre are purely studio products.

So maximum credit must go for a trio of old and new bands to head round the country on a tour bus for a series of live dates. With no dates in the south and thanks to the hospitality of like minded friends, I headed up on an away gig of my own to catch them at the Yardbirds club in Grimsby, which for a small venue off the beaten track is attracting an impressive roster of name acts.

Australians White Widdow opened with an all too short 35 minute set, equally balanced between their 2010 debut which was my album of that year and the follow up Serenade.

'Reckless Nights' got the set off to a typically rousing start, showcasing their infectious blend of up tempo AOR straight out of 1985.

Enzo Almanzi’s guitar and the keyboards of Xavier Millas complement each other perfectly on songs like One More Day. 'We’ve Got the Wings to Fly' reminded me of early Danger Danger, which may be an apt comparison as singer Jules Millas shares Ted Poley’s preference for placing stage moves and enthusiasm above the requirement for vocal perfection.

'Broken Hearts Won’t Last Forever', with the best live 'who-oah’ chorus this side of Tyketto’s Wings, left me and others wanting more.
