ONE THOUGHT ON “UNCOVERS 2ND BIRTHDAY @ INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK” February 2019
What do you get if you combine Independent Venue Week with Uncovers 2nd birthday celebrations? An eccentric, unique evening of live music at The Marrs Bar, that’s what!
Headline act of the night was The Pink Diamond Revue. A three piece band fronted by a genuine mannequin, Acid Dol – “a model from another dimension”. The human members of the band were in the form of a visually eccentric guitarist and a drummer who literally took a back seat at the back of the stage. The guitarist stole the show, in his gold suit, gold eye shadow and gold guitar strap- you’d be forgiven for thinking a Bowie tribute was about to perform- relentlessly strummed from one song to the next, teasing the mannequin with the end of his guitar front and centre of the stage. The mannequin, diva-esque with her presence, changed head gear throughout the set, and at one point was joined by Booby from Legpuppy for an intimate dance. Something that has to be seen to be believed, a little delving on Youtube will deliver the evidence. A musical Electro/ Dance/ Psych journey with vocal samples and powerful guitar riffs delivered over hypnotic drum beats produced a fitting end to the most eclectic Uncover night I’ve attended to date.
KANADIA / TEMPER CARTEL / THE PINK DIAMOND REVUE
With his slicked hair, unnerving gaze and tight-fitting suit, The Pink Diamond Revue frontman Tim Lane looks like the sort of bloke who ends uncomfortable conversations with a switchblade. Tonight, though, he channels any simmering discontent by continually harassing the legless mannequin on stage with him with his guitar, all the while crunching out relentless surfabilly dirges over the drummer’s metronomic beats, washes of industrial synths and disembodied vocal samples. It sounds like Dick Dale, Kraftwerk and Ministry dropped a bunch of mushrooms together and invented Death In Vegas twenty years too early. It’s simple, highly effective and brilliantly hypnotic.
