Oh! Gunquit - Photos from Weirdsville June 24th 2017
Oh! Gunquit headlined another great night at Weirdsville on Saturday June 24th hot on the heels of the release of their stunning second album "Lightning Likes Me". It was the first time I've seen them since saxophonist Chuchi joined the line-up and he added even more dynamism and character to a band already bursting at the seams with all these qualities. During "Caves" Tina crawled off the stage and through the crowd's legs and during the encore she treated us to her trademark of hula-hooping while playing the trumpet. It was a great set packed full of songs from both albums but it's the new numbers that made their mark tonight, with tracks like "Fireballs", "Suzy Don't Stop" and the Punky thrash of "Captain of The Creeps" really standing out. As on the new album "Greasy Moves" was a nicely sleazy delight and you realise the band are full of surprises, energy, fun and colour but most importantly they now have a set bursting with fantastic songs. If you get chance please get out and see the band play, you certainly won't regret it! I featured the album on the Blog a couple of weeks ago here and you can see the review and a video of "Nomads of The Lost" here.
