Dumpy's Rusty Nuts Reviews
Send us a review of a Gig you have attended
LONDON ASTORIA 19th December 2004
Hawkwind supported by Dumpy's Spacenutz and The Vees
Some extracts from an excellent review of the show by Paul Eaton-Jones
His full review can be found here on Starfarer's Hawkwind Page
"For the next twenty minutes we were treated to a wonderful solo set by Dumpy. Ive never seen him before and never even heard any of his music. I thought his band played 12-bar rhythm and blues - a good time pub rock band - shows how much I know. With just his guitar, bass synth pedals and a keyboard he played a continuous, uninterrupted piece of music that was a display of space rock that Ive only seen / heard bettered by Hawkwind themselves. He departed to much cheering and is obviously much loved. "
"At this point I have to admit I cant
remember whether they go off again and return or stay on and go into Master
Of the Universe! (Im usually a comprehensive note-taker / observer,
sorry). Anyway the next song is Master Of The Universe and
Dumpy again rejoins the band as do the satyr and fairy. What a tumultuous
sound. Again every player is pushing things to the limit. Daves
and Dumpys lead guitars cut through the overall swirling thunder
weaving melodic, incisive lines that are utterly magical. All too soon
it finishes and Dave walks to the mic to speak the track that now traditionally
closes a Hawkwind concert, Welcome To The Future. Then its
Academy 2 20/12/04
I heard this amazing music last night. It
was this guy supporting Hawkwind at their Manchester Academy gig. It was
mind-blowing stuff. Swirling synthesizers, throbbing bass, insistent drum
machines overlaid with some magic guitar playing. And all this performed
by one guy alone on the stage! "with his hands and feet". This
combination of man and machine worked a treat, producing a hard, driving,
mesmerising, psychedelic experience. I was completely knocked out by it.
Thanks again for that magical music - Its nice when you go along to see a band that you already know and they put on a good show, like Hawkwind did in Manchester, but its even better when you catch somebody by chance that you don't know and not really expecting to like and you end up completely enthralled. Cheers!
A great night and some amazing music, Thanks

What an outstanding performance from this 21 year strong band of men.
Once again Zaks customers were treated to an outstanding sound,
DRN seem to go from strength to strength the longer the years go on..
So get on your
hogs, and get to their next gig.
