Band Of Skulls Tickets
Rated 3 out of 5 by Big gay Dave from Band of Skulls return to Manchester I love the Band of Skulls on record, but I find them quite frustrating whenever I see them live.This is the fifth time I've seen them and this has been the best performance I have seen from them by far. I've never been able to put my finger on why they are so frustrating, but I think I might have discovered it. Musically, their songs change in tempo throughout, so it's difficult to build up some momentum, getting the crowd going. They should be able to get a bit of a mosh pit going, because they've got the songs for it. Unfortunately they don't seem to be able to do it. I've also thought that they are a bit 'too cool for school', with very little interaction with the crowd, but I think that they might just be shy, rather than them not wanting to interact. The main thing that struck me this time though was that the band actually appeared to be enjoying themselves. There was definitely some smiles and encouraging the crowd to enjoy themselves. Maybe it's just taken them a while to find their feet.
