It's official. The word is out.

After 'track not found' played last Friday night at The Fermain Tavern with The Recks, Flexagon and Dolmens the buzz is that this young band is one of the most exciting new bands on the Guernsey music scene.

I have to agree :-)

track not found pen most of the songs in their set which features an edgy punk sound. I can remember the first time I saw the band play back in the summer. Even then I thought they showed promise but the speedy development of their own sound together with a growing confidence and individuality in their stage presence and style has been surprising.

And I think this band has a lot to come yet. They are really contemporary and will capture a growing fan base the more they play.

It was notable among the crowd at The Fermain Tavern that many people hadn't seen the band before and the general comments where all positive and suprised.

Indeed the whole of the night showcased the Guernsey/Sark music scene really well. Also on the bill were Dolmens... another fairly new (but maybe not quite so young!) band fronted by Stace Blondel who had his usual antics of climbing and hanging off anything near the stage restricted by the guitar hanging off his shoulder.

I must say that this bands performance was most enjoyable and (maybe) benefited from Stacey being stuck to the spot as his vocals showed more tone and complexity. Another great addition the the local music scene.

Flexagon filled the space between bands with weird and qwerky sounds and samples. A great effort Sir.

Headliners were The Recks. They produced what we have come to expect together with new tracks. The crowd loved them and they certainly haven't lost the magic. In fact I think their set had more sparkle, rhythm and 'bounce' then recent gigs.... not very well explained I know. I'll leave the technical review stuff to Tom Girard!

I only know what I know and like... and this lineup at the 'tav ticked most of my boxes.

I've added a few pics of the gig here:
