>> I've been listening to Christina Malley, The Sixteen Tones and Little Miss Strange (originally a song, written by Noal Redding for the 'Electric Ladyland' record by The Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1968) for the last half-hour. Not my best decision because it makes the decision where to go tonight even more difficult. Actually 'difficult' doesn't quite fit. After me constantly wittering about the upcoming Phenomenal Handclap Band gig at The Kazimier tonight, I feel majorly conflicted.
Blues sirene Christina Malley is sheer pleasure for one's ears. The Sixteen Tones ' Southern Rock tunes don't exactly lift me off my feet, but they're performance is solid. And then there's Little Miss Strange - the root of all evils. I think, I've mentioned my caution of "labeling & boxing" bands before. Well, this definitely applies to Little Miss Strange whose sound doesn't fall short of the self-description you'll find on their Facebook page: "In a bold stance, L.M.S have shown no remorse in their conscious effort to avoid joining anyone else’s bandwagon. Their vision, professionalism and talent is what sets them apart from the crowd and is ultimately what drives them forward. "
