On November 25th The Underground Revolution hosted ‘A Wild Night of Garage Psych’ with special guests The Hungry Ghosts, Pablo Alto and DJ’s Sam and Siobhan at The Booth Hall in Hereford. It was a night of raw psych energy and enigmatic performances that included frontman Joe Joseph lying on the floor in the fetal position screaming into his mic. The crowd watched in amazement of course, and were carried away by their brand of ‘slaughterhouse blues’ and psychedelic fusion. They most certainly had us dancing to their sexy but at times violent sounds.

Pablo Alto have developed a following in the local music circuit. They are gregarious and put on a good n’ loud show – the crowds love it. Once ‘Spacecat’ came on we were all ears listening to a song that came to be after one of John Rose’s reoccurring nightmares about his cat Pablo going missing – except this time in space. I would’ve loved to be Pablo in that dream. They put some power into their performances which get me each and every time.

I was quite excited to have DJ’s Sam and Siobhan doing their thing between the bands. It was really a nice touch to break up two bands with a DJ set. The highlight of their set was when Sioban broke out with SexWitch on vinyl. You could almost say I was in shock – I had been listening to that album on repeat lately.

Anyway, I really enjoyed how they fused old and new psych sounds, it could have been a house party in the 60’s, and they kept the atmosphere authentic. They are one of those young couples you could find in a place like London or New York who know their music in depth and put on a stylin’ set. Hats off to them both.

Many Thanks to Element Audio for their support
