Gig Review / Preview

Designer Magazine’s Ash gig review features a paragraph on The Crimea. It’s also in the usual place.
Here’s the Daily Record article on T In The Park that was mentioned on the message board, where Edith Bowman recommends The Crimea.
And here’s the BBC’s T In The Park website. Turn’s out they’re gonna be joining the crowds for hours of live TV and radio coverage on the weekend. And guess who’s gonna be nervously hovering over the record button all night in case his favourite band puts in a two second appearance? Well it’s not like I have anything better to do :o \.

Likewise The Crimea are shadows of their former band, The Crocketts. Once upon a time frontman Davey “Crockett” McManus used to be known for not being able to go on stage without about 7 E’s, nowadays he may shake his tits off, but it’s to the soundtrack of a semi-acoustic dirge. Still if they can write more songs like the classic “Girl Just Died” then they’re onto a winner, but amongst the lyrical genius of McManus there needs to be a few choruses, a few hooks and something to leave a lasting memory of the band.
