When I saw this guy at the Green Man I was amazed. He's a phenomenal guitar player. I can't find any YT clips that really do him justice. He should be great in a venue that size though.

Good Call Butts cheers. Me n Si going, he lent me the album, ace. He has that Marresque understated guitar brilliance with the inventiveness. Voice reminds me of Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev with its high end calling.

Anyone at a loose end this Thursday, there's a few of us down the Brudenell for this group - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Youtube doesn't come close to capturing the live experience.

Underwhelmed tonight, an undoubtedly talented musician let down by his constant need to fiddle with effects and mess around with all kinds of distortion effects and loops, all got a bit tiresome in the end. When he just played and allowed his extraordinary voice do the work we saw shafts of what I remember from last year but it was all a bit of a mess.

I think he could do with a better band as well, the drummer was a real thumper. I liked the way he interspersed interludes and song fragments, that seemed a really natural thing to happen but he'd totally lost me by the end of the three or four minutes of feedback at the end. Shame

Nice to see Mr & Mrs Leb, LD and Simon.

Yep - he didn't capture me at all - you could see he had talent but seemed nothing special if I'm being brutally honest - add to that the temperature in the brud last night and I judged him not worth hanging around for - still - it was a good night and you can't win em all.

Well, when I say it was a good night, other than my major Hold Steady faux-pas.

Yeah another gig not quite achieving the excellence of the album and coincidentally another young kid at the helm, Maybe we expect too much maturity in fresh talent, dunno. He was certainly a bit odd wasnít he?

Started off in the Library with a decent enough burger and pint deal before moseying down to the Royal and a couple of most affordable Youngís Special. 1.99 a pint so i thought itíd be rude not to.

Then next door into the Brude seemingly doing tandoori oven impressions with the temperature. Never the less i love the Brudenell. Everything a good venue should be. The last support band were a jaunty outfit doing Folksy countryfied Scoterana and are on at the Green man.

Avi Buffalo then appeared on stage without any introduction or entrance and ambled into their set. Female drummer, bass player, rhythm guitar and Mr Buffalo himself on high pitched vocal and accomplished classic lead guitar. Armed with an album of well crafted songs you would have thought that should be enough but no, he insisted on sonic detours into pure gratuitous tinkering with noise that had zero artistic impact. A shame because when they did focus on what they are good at it came across just fine and dandy to me though why he kept referring to the albums songs as old was a mystery. Maybe he doesn't have the pride in them he should have. He also made some symbolic reference about "Rough Trading" and "giving the motherfuckers what they wanted" when they launched into the Albums most immediate stand out track- Whatís in it for.

I fear for them actually and canít see any longevity. Still one brilliant album is worth it and another good night out with good company certainly was.
