Kitten Surprise, For the Quail and The Fu King, Refuel, 23/05/12
The second band was ‘For The Quail’ and I enjoyed them very much indeed. I was reminded of Jeff Buckley from time to time, although there was not so much “brood” to it. Quail have written some really uplifting material and were a pleasure to listen to. The show sounded great and the lads appeared just as professional as a band of their caliber should – impressed.
Headlining the night was ‘The Fu King’ who I had seen once last year. Since October 2011 this band have noticeably stepped up. When I first experienced them they had only just formed, regardless; I was still quite mesmerized by their performance. They have since taken what they began with and nurtured it into a very slick, polished and original take on heavy music. The chemistry between all four members is organic and the sound is fresh. I really look forward to watching this band grow further in the future.
Well done to the crowd for being so open minded, twas indeed a broad range of musical terrain covered but everybody stuck through and saw the night out dancing. All in all, fantastic show!
