October 27, 2004
To make good use of my last free Wednesday morning this term I decided to spend Tuesday night at the Union watching the Delays. Although I had been told many good things about this band I had not heard any of their music. There were two supporting bands; the first was Pellumair who were fairly but as I dont remember them very much I can only presume that they werent amazing; the second was HAL who I thought were very impressive an I would happily have paid to see them play as the main band. Their sound was musical and not overly polished, I thought that the lead singer had a good voice and the band harmonised well. And onto the titling band: The Delays…I was impressed, I would say that they are one of the best bands that I have been to see. The lead singer was energetic with an fantastic voice although I can only speculate how he managed to sing at such a high pitch. There was an odd member of the band who spent a large proportion of their songs wondering around the stage, which was somewhat weird and although I'm sure he adds something to the group musically he was entertaining most of the time.
I would definitely recommend any indie/rock fanatics to go and see them at any opportunity.
But then didnt I want to sing.
