Last night saw me at Bedfest in Knaresborough. It was (and hopefully will be again) a music event held at Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough – a thoroughly decent charitable cause.
The final act of the nights was a group called FOLD – they were mind blowingly good!
Think of Kruder & Dorfmeister’s smokey beats with the political commentary of Scroobius Pip and you will get an inkling of what they bought to the stage. It was a simple set up; Drums, Bass, Guitar & laptop with all sorts of MIDI devices connected into it. I figure they would be running Ableton – they weren’t. I had enough Dutch Courage to sneak a peak at his computer screen and I was let down by the basic set up. I will not go into details.
However – simple interface // incredible sound! It was mind blowing and I recommend any readers in Barnsley to go and see them when they perform their next gig on June 22nd.
Really good music in a really good setting for a really great cause.
