This month, we celebrated the release of Resurrection Men's second album "No" by taking over the Coventry West Indian Centre. This was easily our favourite Creature Lab show of all time... the "Windian" is a big, bare ballroom in a community that makes a superb DIY venue even if we do say so ourselves. Its been on our target list for a long time, and we were very pleased to finally make our mark on it with our biggest show and crowd to date.
Resurrection Men turned up in terrifying form, walking out onto stage to Paul Robeson's English language version of the Soviet anthem (yep) before tearing into a version of Threes that shook the Windian from front to back.
We extended an invitation to the band that Resurrection Men have perhaps gigged with more than any other over their nearly ten years together, Charles Dexter Ward and The Imagineers. You know what you're getting with CDW, "demented blues garage boogie" according to one reviewer, and we got certainly got it!
We had a very special guest to open the show- BlackCar, the performing alias of former Headswim frontman Dan Glendining. We're not usually big fans of the one man and guitar format., but Dan's songs - helped along by one of the best guitar sounds we've come across in the wild - worked perfectly in this setting and we were made up that he chose to spend his Saturday night with us.
