Twisting and turning. Jumping and diving.
On 13 September Low Sped Bus Chase delivered the some of the filthiest funk/rock grooves this side of Melbourne.
Funk/rock hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s here. And it was at the Evelyn with Low Speed Bus Chase. A solid five piece band, they combine heavy rock rhythms with thick funky bass grooves and pop/rock-inspired melodic vocals. And it hung together as tightly as you can imagine. They hit every cue, every note and sounded as a single entity – this was clearly a band in their element.
Frontman and lead singer Jack led the charge, jumping and dancing and jiving. At times it felt as if he were about to launch himself into something – either the ceiling or the crowd, perhaps. His energy was matched by the rest of the band – particularly gravity-defying guitarist B.B. and bassist Mook, who threw his long orange mane even further than he threw his bass.
The light and smoke effects added a dramatic dimension to the show – washing the stage in purple and orange haze, punctuated with striking backlit silhouettes.
The energy level in the venue was indisputable. The room was filled with excited fans who were singing along, screaming and yelling and feeding off the band’s passion. A noticeable release of energy occurred when he band started playing their latest single – Method of Loci – and the audience recognised it and began singing along.
Even during a quiet moment when lead singer Jack stepped into the audience and sat down in front of the stage to sing some quieter moments, audience members were heard musing to themselves – “This is so intense.”
