The whole thing

Toronto's Uncut mine the sound of alternative rock in Britain in the 1980s, before "alternative rock" meant "fifth-rate major label Pearl Jam clone." Like tourmates The Diableros they've got a bit of a Jesus and Mary Chain fixation. They cite Swervedriver as an influence; I hear that as well. They put on a good show. The band has three vocalists, which allows for a little more sonic diversity.

Sam Goldberg handled most of the vocals.

Drummer Jon Drew.

Ian Worang bends. He did this a few dozen times during the show.

Bassist Derek Tokar from low down.

Faceoff action!

Uncut action!

I'd say it was solid, but not great.
