Review: Vitruvian Men at the Zanzibar club, Liverpool
1:08pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
IN these days of manufactured musical artists it's refreshing to encounter a young band who can comfortably demonstrate their raw ability without the need for artifice.
When Vitruvian Men played a gig at Liverpool's Zanzibar club last Friday, many new listeners were surprised by the quality of their performance.
Although raw and inexperienced, they showed a maturity that belies their age; comfortably moving past the inevitable errors without panic or loss of composure.
Their compositions and lyrics demonstrate an understanding beyond their experience.
They confidently performed seven of their own songs and also rattled out a credible version of London's Calling - Even Joe Strummer would have been impressed!
Three of the lads are still only 17, and they have not yet had the opportunity to gain the practice and experience that move a band to the next level.
However, given their enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic, along with their obvious musical talent, it will not be a surprise when they do achieve some success and recognition.
Drummer Andy Walsh said: “It was a great experience and we learnt a huge amount - not just about performing but also in the need for great preparation and planning for any eventuality.
"All the band were delighted by the amount of support they managed to attract, and also by the amazing response of the audience.”
