HCW @ Splinter @ The Bridge

Edd Carr (gtr), Christos Worsley (bs. gtr), John Hirst (dms).
A familiar and well known trio who continue to develop around original material. Although the content is mainly in a jazz/rock vein occasionally they throw in something of a rhapsodic nature which makes for a pleasing contrast.
Edd Carr knows his way around a fretboard - even a 7 string one - and he had some wild moments taking each chorus almost to the limit. On 5 string bass guitar Christos Worsley was less frenetic - cool and laid back his flowing bass-lines added just the right dimension. Christos looked totally different with his dark, curling locks shorn - he went into the barbers a boy and came out a man! A confidente explained it was one of the conditions of working part-time in Pizza Hut.
On drums John Hirst not only provided the impetus behind the other two but also wrote most of the compositions.
A good gig and a decent sized crowd.
Lance.
