Friday I took a break from letter to check out the surf-influenced sounds of Wakefield's Madafakas, fellow surf fans Casa Lagarto and Nightshades, courtesy of the House of Targ (with a helping hand from the Beau's folks).
Casa Lagarto took the stage first (I actually arrived as they were starting up a number). This was their first gig.
Singalong action! That's Jonny from The Yips at left.
The whole lot!
The shouty bit!
Hammy action with Sterling!
The Nightshades provided a garage-styled interlude. Here's Geoff!
Bass action with Sarah!
And so on!
Rhythm section action!
The Madafakas tied a bow on the night with some surf and punk inflected sounds. I dare say their wardrobe owes a bit to The Clash, and their sound does too.
The Madafakas are a lively lot, so I had to switch over to flash.
More running about!
As I said, a really lively bunch and well worth checking out.
