The Rock-itt : December 2010
The legendary Lime Spiders return to Sydney for a special one off and rare show at the Sando before a few gigs in Qld to finish 2010, supported by Happy Hate Me Nots and Infamous Grouse. Infamous Grouse take full advantage of this high profile gig to show off their brand of grass root blues/innercity rock to an appreciative crowd. Happy Hate Me Nots are a successful inner city band from the 1980's who in 2006 reformed and supported the Buzzcocks and From the Jam in 2008. In front of a capacity sized crowd the band wasted no time showing us why they were so popular playing such catchy songs as 'When I Die', 'Nothing Short of Paradise', 'Soul Rejection', 'You're An Angel', and finishing with 'Blue Afternoon'. The band is currently working on a new album for 2011 release and we were treated to a few new songs such as 'Find the Time' and 'I Want To Go' which received a very positive reaction. The band was pumped and excited to be back playing live so keep an eye out for them! From the minute the Lime Spiders hit the stage they powered with precision and enthusiasm to a packed house who were eager to rock which saw one punter trying his hand at stage diving! The band line up was Mick Blood, Gerard Corben, Tom Corben, David Sparks and Tony Bambach. Mick points out to me how great it is to have a father and son combination with Gerard Corben's 19 year old son "Tombo" whom he has seen growing up to become the powerhouse drummer of the Lime Spiders. Mick Blood looking very comfortable on stage and in mighty fine form, acknowledged the band's 30 year existence and their appreciation of the loyal supporters of the band who came out in full force to witness this rare event. The band played with precision and raw energy such great tracks as 'Silent Partner', 'Old Dog New Tricks', 'Out of Control', 'Dead Boys', 'I Was Alone', 'My Favourite Room', 'Volatile', '25th Hour', 'Save My Soul', 'Just One Solution' and of course the most famous song of Lime Spiders at the Sandringham Hotel, Newtown Review and Photos by DaveTozer.com.au To view photos of the night visit www.facebook.com/davetozerphotography
