I’d tried to catch Taman Shud last year. I’d seen a video of one of their performance on Facebook and loved the intensity of it. So I took the opportunity to catch them as part of the Artrocker evenings at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen.
In the flesh, they do have a great intensity. They’ve got a very heavy dark psych sound. I enjoyed their performance and would have preferred to have seem them in an even smaller venue with a big crowd.
Next up were the Asylums with a hyperactive lead singer. I’m not sure I actually liked their music. But I really enjoyed their performance. There’s no way these guys would short change an audience.
Last up were CuT who seemed to have quiet a devoted following. Didn’t quiet work for me.
