Honeyblood - King Tuts Wah Wah Club, Glasgow, 20/2/2011

intro

At King Tuts Wah Wah Club in Glasgow, Tong Gaughan watches Bath indie blues rockers Kill It Kid play a short, yet forceful set at a show to promote their forthcoming second album, 'Let My Feet Fall Heavy'


These Bath indie blues rockers may have been reduced to a four piece by the departure of violinist Rich Wilson. There were no missing elements, however, in this high octane performance, which focused mainly on their forthcoming second album 'Let My Feet Fall Heavy' and on the evidence of this will be as anticipated as their critically acclaimed self titled debut. Front man Chris Turpin and his onstage 'sister' Steph Ward shared vocal duties and from opener 'Heart Rested' it was plainly obvious these kids have it in spades. 'Sweetness' and 'Your in My Blood', both of which were taken from the new record, were well received and show a harder edge and a less cluttered, more focused maturity. 'Send Me an Angel Down', like their name, was lifted from their idol Blind Willie McTell's song book. It had a real delta blues feel with its obvious influences of Tom Waits and Son House and the shared vocals on it were inspiring. 'Dirty Water', which was driven by a solid rhythm section and howling guitars, and a great vocal delivery from Steph Ward on the new single, 'Pray on Me', again showed this band at the top of their game. The short set was closed by 'Heaven Never Seemed So Close'. On the evidence of this short performance you bet it didn't.
