I’m a bit bad at checking bands I don’t know out before I go to Pure Groove instores, mostly because I operate under the ‘I’ll check them out when I’m there’ way of thinking. I do do a small amount of investigating to see if it’s the type of thing I’m interested in, but nothing substantial. It adds an element of pleasant surprise when I see a good band.
This was the case with Curly Hair. I watched about 10 seconds of this video and decided they warranted the walk over to Farringdon. I didn’t watch the rest of the video.. extra surprise and all. I really enjoyed their fun set. They were a 3 piece, guitar, keyboard/glock and drums. It was Slow Club-ish. For the last song they decamped from the stage and decided to stand around the 3 remaining sides of my 4 sided table and do an un-amplified song. It was lovely, if not slightly awkward for me. I’d happily catch the band again, here is their Myspace… keep an eye on them!
