Tyketto - Camden Underworld 30-11-11


First up in front of a very respectable size crowd for a Wednesday night was Sondura. A 4 piece from London they hit hard for 30 minutes with a greater crowd response coming after every song.

Heavy yet melodic with a real great groove it left everybody wanting more and with their second cd due in 2012 one definitely to watch.

The same couldn’t be said of Fighting Wolves. On the wrong bill their shouty hardcore played with their backs to the audience turned everyone off.

Tyketto were back with their original line up for the first time in 15 years, and how London loved it. Over the course of 90 minutes we witnessed some real magic.

Led by the quite brilliant Danny Vaughn (vocals/guitar) who at the age of 50 just gets better with age. His comment about being 50 and his hair is all his own but the colour is by L’Oreal brought the house down.

Here’s what they played:

Lay Your Body Down
Strength In Numbers
Nothing But Love
End Of The Summer Days
Love To Love (new song but on the reissue of Strength In Numbers)
Rescue Me
Burning Down Inside
Wings
Meet Me In The Night
Sound Off (new song)
Seasons
Standing Alone
Catch My Fall
Sail Away
Encores of Last Sunset
Forever Young

How could they go wrong. Playing 8 songs off  one of my favourite cd’s of all time and ending with Forever Young - Stunning.

With returning guitarist Brooke St James playing it very much like the cd’s, the purist’s who felt PJ on the last tour was a bit modern, everyone was happy.

With Michael Clayton (drums), Jimi Kennedy (bass) and Bobby Lynch on keys laying down a great groove at the back all eyes were on Danny who gave us his all for every note and letting us join in at every opportunity.

With a new cd called “Dig In Deep” due on Frontiers in April/May and a tour to follow the one very new song gave us all hope for the future.

As Danny and Brooke left the stage to rapturous applause Danny gave Brooke a kiss.

We are glad he is back too.

Stunning.

12/10.

  1. Great review, thanks. Fighting Wolves - what a fantastic name for a band... it's just a pity that they were (apparently) so awful.
