Amplifico...more information please!!
I had intended to post a review of the gig I went to last night, which was Aberfeldy in Edinburgh. However, due to the fact that the soundchecking had taken ages along the line somewhere, the band were not on til late, which meant that I couldn't see the whole gig, so not really fair to review it here. I have now seen them eight times over the last three years, whihc is more than I've seen any other band.
No, this post is about Amplifico the fabulous support band, who absolutely blew me away. My mate Dave, who I went with, reckons that Donna the lead singer has a touch of Kate Bush about her. KT Tunstall is apparently in awe of her voice-and she's not the only one. Their set was an absolute joy from start to finish.
I'm kinda embarassed though, because I cannot write about Amplifico in as informed a way as I would like. I'm hoping they - or someone can get in touch with more information. They look very cool, and their bass player was supposedly playing his first gig with them last night, Wearing tails! and pulling it off. Their myspace says they are a three piece, though Scott seemed like very much part of the band.
I loved their sound and cannot wait to see them live again. I tried to buy some of their music today, but no-one seems to know if they've got anything out.
Anyway, here's two mp3s from their MySpace. Check them out, and go and see them live, and make friends with them at their mySpace spot.
And please, someone let me know: What do they have out? Is Scott in the band? When is their debut album actually out, and on what label?
Amplifico-'Red Song.' mp3
Amplifico-'Just To Pause This.' mp3
