ConcertsKadaver & Buffalo Summer @ Bodega, Nottingham, UK 10/26/2013

Posted on Tuesday, November 19 2013 @ 05:14:28 CST by Dean Pedley
Heavy Metal This was to be my first visit to the compact, earthy surroundings of Nottingham's Bodega for two bands that I've been supporting for a while in a whole new live experience.

With plaudits from mega stars like Duff McCagan (Or uncle Duff as they like to call him) Buffalo Summer are certainly finding their groove and continue to flourish in their live performances. Since the last time I saw them their confidence and overall feel has grown like the fat grooves they lay down. With a Free/Bad Company vibe running through their veins this Welsh quartet have the ability and talent to make a succesful dent in the Rock world. Andrew Hunt's vocals have that 70's swagger with brother Gareth keeping the rhythm along with Darren King on bass, new track 'Money' is a great addition to the set and certainly indicates which way the next album will sound. Jonny Williams is ripping out the solo's on his guitar to the delight of the sizeable crowd amassed to check the guys out, great set from these Welsh hopefuls who's rise is just a matter of time.

Kadavar are treading the vintage vibe trail perfectly, their album Abra Kadavar has received glowing reviews and tonight we get to witness the live translation of those tracks. With a soundscape wider than their bell-bottomed trousers, these three musicians deliver a phenomenal sound, 'Doomsday Machine' & 'Come Back Life' ebb from the stage with a raw intensity. Drummer, Tiger is a monster, not only with his chosen instrument but also in stature, dwarfing the drums with his almost seven foot frame his touch is reminiscent of Ginger Baker, delicate yet powerful when the need requires. The swelling crowd packed into the venue nod their heads in rhythmic approval as this German three piece deliver a set of time hopping tunes harking back to smoky sweaty basement venues. The guitar and vocals of Christoph Lindemann are spot on, no heroics, no gimmicks just the pure vibe of a band flowing through the venue like a recently lit cigarette. A set of just over an hour leaves us wanting more of this quite magnificent band, certainly a nod to the past is where its at presently in the Rock world and if its played and performed with as much raw passion as is shown with Kadavar then long may it continue.
