I was one of the sizeable crowd who came to see Flyte and as such didn't realise that I'd be getting five for the price of one. The others were (for the most part) decent with some very good moments. But Flyte was clearly the big attraction (the audience noticeably thinned out following their set) and did not disappoint.
I recognise that this is not a review of Flyte's performance, rather the Communion event as a whole. So as far as Flyte are concerned they might be the best guys on the up at the moment. See em!
The Arts Club is a great venue - the sound was really good and not too loud which was pleasant. Otherwise there were a few technical speed-bumps, dealt with well by the house whose fault they weren't (broken bass strings and faulty leads cried out for discordant attention). Gaps between acts could have been shortened to keep the excitement - a quick smoke break can become an elongated stint on cold cobbles wondering whether to strike up another. I really think that the success of these nights relies on maintaining the mood. There was a good turn-out for a Sunday and this should be rewarded with more live than recorded music!
A nice range of acts - acoustic to what eventually became post/math rock. I'll probably come again.
