When they were good they were very good. When they were bad they were awesome!
I realise I need to qualify that statement. Let Spin are a very good band with lots of well crafted originals and exciting solos. However, when they move towards the "bad" area - ie Improv - an area where I'm told I usually view the instruments as weapons of darkness, to paraphrase a recent comment, the excitement generated transcends boundaries and genres. This was no incendiary device detonated in a pet shop but an emotional explosion. Sure there was freedom, but not to the extent that musical values were cast aside for sheer effect.
Four players at the top of their game sent the fans in the crowded room home very happy after a highly successful JNE/Splinter promotion.
I recently reviewed their début album so, rather than repeat myself, as all but one of the compositions are on the CD, I'll simply ask you to check it out again. What I wrote stands, indeed hearing them live probably more so!
