Newcastle band Kubichek have taken the indie scene by storm. Clearly stealing the show at Friday night’s Club NME, the band had moments of sheer genius. Reminding me of a more indie sped up version of one of my favourite bands South, this band actually has apparent musicianship which is lacking in most generic indie bands today. The guitar parts in particular were very shoegazy at times, which is definitely the band’s strong point and hopefully future musical focus. They did tend to drift into generic indie rock standards, but it was when they went left of centre that they really shined. Less indie and more ‘South’ is what this band needs to hit the big time! But damn good effort I must say!
Oh… and LOVED the finale by the way. Good ole fashioned rock n roll trashing the stage! YES!
