Diamond Head-Cairo Son and Dead Man’s Whiskey-Islington o2 Academy

Opener Dead Man’s Whiskey, from London,  managed to charm me with their heavy rock, I wouldn’t mind seeing them again actually. For a band that has only been together two years they show a lot of promise.

Cairo Son’s music is not my cup of tea, so a after the three songs no flash, yet everyone else is snapping away with their latest handsets I call it a day watching any further to give my foot a rest at the end of the bar.

Diamond Head I had not seen since 1985, in The Hague at ParkPop Fest. Their latest album is a return to true form. And the show was nothing short of great fun. Light-wise a disaster with just some red rope lights illuminating the band. I think they work better in b&w.
