The new monthly residency nights from Some Weird Sin Club are being held at the Buffalo Bar in Islington and proving to be very popular indeed. The DJ's were spinning classic glam, punk and rock tunes while the place itself which can be found in the basement, quickly filled with locals and a notable number of musicians on their night off.
It was packed by the time The Priscillas came on stage to open the set with 'Gonna rip up your photograph.' The band's line-up changed again recently and I witnessed them for the very first time as an all-female group. Charming guitarist Guri Hummelsund and charismatic frontwoman Jen Brown O'Drag are still very much in the band and in complete control of the audience which happily sang along to 'Timing', 'Jimmy', 'Where's Lydia' and especially the classic '(All the way to) Holloway) from their album '10,100 Volt'. It does help to be a Londoner that lives north of the river to understand 'Holloway': 'All the way to Holloway, they offered me Hollywood but it could never be as good...Holloway - I'm here to stay!' Do I need to mention that Jen Brown O'Drag is a New Jersey lass and that The Priscillas were interviewed by the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer from KROQ in Los Angeles just a few months ago? Rodney has always been a fan of The Priscillas and their sound is probably best defined as an explosive mix between punk and pop. The girls entertaining show was unsurprisingly very well received as usual and they deserve all the attention that has been devoted to them by both the music press and their faithful and steadily growing supporters. www.thepriscillas.com
