Caught Live: Winston's Big Brother @ The Robin 01/12/13

Live and unleashed @ The Robin 2: Winston's Big Brother
#624: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! It was indeed a wise decision to travel down to The Robin 2 in Bilston earlier this afternoon (Sunday 1st December) to finally see and hear ELOBF recommended band Winston's Big Brother in person as they competed in the second month, third heat of The Robin 2 Live Band of the Year.

Winston's Big Brother were up against two other local acts. Floor 6, an alternative acoustic duo from Birmingham, whose covers of "Tainted Love" and "Common People" were noteworthy and Tyrannosaurus Nebulous, a five piece Black Country rock band, who delivered a storming set including a rocked-up cover of the Dusty Springfield classic "I Only Want To Be With You".
The Brummie based quartet (whose debut EP is produced by former Uglys and ELO member Dave Scott-Morgan) followed - delivering an assured, professional and confident set of eight songs featuring "Remedy", "Along For The Ride", "The Truth", "Come Together", "Hand You Should Fold", "Society", "Yer Blues" and "Suffocating". Their own material - particularly "Society" and "Suffocating" - were impressive and blended seamlessly with their powerful rock re-interpretations of Beatles classics "Come Together" and "Yer Blues".
Winston's Big Brother ... plus one!

It was all to good avail as the band successfully won the heat and progressed to the Third Monthly Final on Sunday 15th December at 12:30PM. Entry is just £4 and, if they progress, Winston's Big Brother will qualify for the Grand Final on Tuesday 17th December.

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends Winston's Big Brother to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 01-Dec-2013
