Finally! The new Kiss Me, Killer lineup stormed the stage at The Plough Inn, Easton after a long hiatus. If you haven’t followed us on Facebook, Cat, previously our backing singer and rhythm guitarist, has taken over lead vocal duties. And brilliant she sounds too.
The Plough gig was put on by promoters Bristol Skum Collective – a new outfit but one that enjoys the involvement of punk scene stalwarts – in support of homelessness charity, Crisis.
KMK’s new and reworked songs went down a treat, with Gentrification and Megabus seeming to go down well, and we felt very tight as a unit. As well as the lineup changes we played around with style and sounds, David giving the Gordon Smith a rest for a bit and sporting a tremolo-equipped Strat to add a new dimension and Nat now choosing to use his classic Rickenbacker bass, with really helped his propulsive baselines jump out. Cat gave an assured performance and the overall feedback was great, with some really liking the new sound and lineup.
Two piece punk rock outfit 51st State and Bristol music legend Rita Lynch played storming sets. The night raised £220 for the homeless.
Not a bad return to he gigging scene then!
