Such a pity that Road Plant only attracted 17 people last night, and I’m sure must have been disappointing for the musicians. However, Andrew et al put on a magnificently entertaining evening, and the small audience were extremely receptive and appreciative.
Road Plant shows another side to Andrew’s talent, and I was particularly entranced with Chris Vale’s drumming. Road Plant is so different from anything any of the musicians play – John Reeves, Andrew Garton, Andrew Shaw & Chris Vale – and their clever interpretation of ‘road plant’ sounds added another dimension to the music…. musically it was a highly successful night.
Two new visitors came up to me and the band afterwards to say how excited they were to have finally seen a show.
