I know I’ve written about this band before so I apologise for the repetition but I went to see them at the Monto last night and they absolutely rocked the house so I wanted to post the link to their MySpace again:
I’d heard a few of their tracks before on their site so knew they had a sixties rock edge to their sound but these chicks would have kicked @ss centre-stage at Woodstock 1969.
Shay May is a vocal powerhouse and lead guitarist Anna Calvi (I think that’s her name)’s riffing was reminiscent of the great Hendrix himself. There’re some tracks up on their MySpace and, although excellent, they pale in comparison to the full-volume live performance – raw, sexy, edgy – the Cherries are immense.
Highlight for me was the Destiny’s Child-Pearl Jam cover - crazy-beautiful as making cake out of cheese and chocolate.
