The Welly Warmer @ The Ringside [Live Review]

Bands: ReVerbed, Heartless Angels, Frisky Biscuit, Blue Eyes Don’t Lie
Location: The Ringside, Hull
Date: 3rd November 2011

The Welly Warmer has been a part of the local music scene in Hull for a long time now, with Music HQ and Arcade Promotions each taking it in turns to put it on every Thursday night at the Ringside. Due to some bands dropping out last minute, Frisky Biscuit and Heartless Angels stepped in as the replacement acts for the night.

The first act to play were the acoustic quartet Frisky Biscuit. To say that I’ve never been interested in acoustic music, this quartet really did impress me. Their set started with two covers before they performed their new original song called “Breathe In” which was a masterpiece of a song. Frisky Biscuit’s members also displayed a very diverse vocal range. They’re certainly a band I would like to see play again at the Welly Warmer.

Heartless Angels brought a pop punk influenced set to the Welly Warmer with them. Their set was a mixture of mediocre songs and some truly great ones. They sounded to have improved since they shared the stage with former Cradle of Filth vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva, as they were more active on the stage. The frontwoman reminded me a bit of Hayley Williams from Paramore – Both vocally and visually. The main support of the night were Blue Eyes Don’t Lie. To say they’re a pop rock band, they sounded more like a hard rock outfit. Though the crowd seemed to enjoy them, I found to be not as entertaining as the first two bands.

Doncaster-based ReVerbed were the headlining act and no wonder – They put on a truly tremendous show. In all honestly, they were the best band of the night. They had a great sound and kept what was left of the crowd entertained. Their alt-rock sound really did blow the minds of the crowd, especially songs like “Obsession”, “Beautiful Lie” and “Burn”. The combination of male and female vocals worked well and did the music a lot of justice. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more of ReVerbed in Hull and other parts of the UK as well.
