Tags: , , , , , ,




Its took me awhile to get over to the Cookie Jar, mostly because every time there has been someone I wanted to see there, I have had tickets for another band elsewhere, but what a great small venue, great friendly people,good service and well organised venue with three of the best bands you could wish for Wolf Alice, Superfood and the newish to my ears of the three Genghar this was as good as an evening gets. Genghar started the evening, I had seen them at Live at Leeds in another awesome venue the Belgrave Music Hall they played a pretty short set with great tunes especially the standout song on their soundcloud site “Fill My Gums With Blood” I really like the guys vocal its frailty adding to the distinct sound they are going to be a superb festival band and one to see during the summer. Next on were the wonderful Birmingham band Superfood I must admit to seeing them about a dozen times now, certainly one of my favourites a relaxed style with blistering guitar breaks and one of the best new drummers around, infectious songs culminating in the sing along band titled song “Superfood” cannot wait for the album release apparently not out till October.
Finally Wolf Alice who were the band to see from last year and the most blogged about, they have worked hard forming the songs,finding their sound releasing some gems as EP’s, so consistent with exceptional songs especially the forthcoming “creature Songs” the new ones, with more powerful guitar sounds and great riffs , they are so tight even with a couple of tech guitar issues they blitzed the songs added a few lines of Chris Isaaks “Wicked Game”
so get yourself along to the Cookie Jar support this wonderful venue. PS the beer comes in pint milk bottles.
