These are a four piece with a sound like The Levellers or The Cranberries. Very fiddle based but a touch of gothic at the same time, I'm sorry I had to watch the crowd rather than them.
I'd already seen him play with another person singing but this time it was just him, a guitar, and his box of tricks. He doesn't so much play music as evoke a mood and his work comes across as a soundtrack to a film which has not been produced. If you like Sigur R?s you'll enjoy.
The Broken Family Band
They played another good gig with a fair amount of songs from their forthcoming album. Alt.country seems to be here to stay, even if the drummer still seems to wish he was in Slayer.
