almost died in the mosh but it was such a fun experience 👍👍
It was only many years after 18 Wheeler had broke up that I learned they headlined King Tuts when Oasis were signed in Glasgow that fateful night in 1993. I had been friend and classmate with the 18 Wheeler bassist and his room mate Sean was also someone I knew well enough to chat with. I suppose life has a way of taking your attention away from certain things and climbing the stairs of King Tut's for the first time last night was very emotional, taking me back to memories of my youth and lost friendship. My impulse purchase for this Sports Team gig was very last minute. The gig was sold out long before and I got lucky to get a return without having to try more than once. It was a fateful outcome as this truly was one of the best gigs of 2019, despite this being the first year seeing Pixies, my favourite act, since we broke the stage at the SECC in the 90s. I had never even looked at a picture or video of this group, so knew nothing about them other than hearing their polished sound on new Indie playlists. What I witnessed in the packed out venue was an energy never before seen from a crowd. The opener was Alfie Templeman and managed to warm up the crowd with some excellent material of his own but the crowd pleasing cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit set the tone for the remainder of the night. My immediate impression of Sports Team was they are destined for big things. Led by a gobby, slightly unhinged vocalist with a fearless passion for entertainment. Although his build will probably remind most folk of Jagger, he struck me as having more in common with Jarvis Cocker on speed. He hilariously restarted one song midway after a mistake, despite the crowd having already reached rapture mosh pit chaos level. His ability to connect with the crowd and his excellent vocal delivery have him pegged for enduring stardom. The next impression was the core sound of the band came from the percussionist. Although the guitarists were all very accomplished, Sports Team build from the foundation of the drummer. The keyboard player has chosen the deadpan persona used by so many acts in the past but carries it off well and certainly generated a wry smile or two. The playlist was strong, forming a powerful backbone for the soon to be released album. This group mean business and set the venue ablaze for 45 minutes. By the end, the group looked exhausted and I only hope they get the recognition they deserve for their quality.
wild crowd, amazing music, so lively! 🤟🏻
mosh pit was mental, alex was amazing with the audience participation and the band sounded amazing
Amazing show as always just let down slightly by the poor sound quality in the venue.
Bro, this was sick. I loved the stage presence and overall it was really exciting!! Loved it?
