High Voltage

My friend Neil had a spare ticket for Electric Six last night. Of course I went; it would have been churlish not to. We met in good time (very good time) and so went from a boozy Sunday afternoon to Chinese meal to gig. To my shame I  didn't really know an awful lot about them prior to showtime (apart from a couple of standout hits 20+ years ago), but in the course of their 90 minute set I was absolutely bowled over. Echoes of the Hives and Turbonegro if you wanna know roughly what page they're on. (Kicking myself now for not getting a tee shirt.)


I particularly got off on their version of Sophie Ellis-Bextor's Murder on the Dance Floor - a contemporary in so many ways of their their own monster single Danger! High Voltage. This is from last Tuesday night at the Brudenell in Leeds.


  1. Ah, I saw Electric Six a couple of years ago when they played the little festival just (literally) down the road from me - they were such value for money, loved them! Dick Valentine, what a man.
    Liking that version of MOTDF.
    From boozy Sunday afternoon to Chinese meal to Electric Six sounds very appropriate somehow.

    1. I loved 'em! I'll definitely go again...
