I feel a Pulse, therefore I am alive....

25th February 2013

If you were in any doubt about your existence or whether your heart was still beating you would have left The Fermain Tavern on Saturday night knowing you still have a Pulse.

Of course the band that got your heart 'a flutter' was The Pulse.

Following the trend of 'oldies' reforming, it was the turn of this band from the '80s. They always had a loyal following due to an unbeatable formula. The line-up was as strong and experienced as any to emerge from these shores. They wrote great songs. They gigged till they dropped & always managed to transfer their on-stage energy onto the audience.
(A NOTE TO THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS OF BANDS): Listen up and take note.

The occasion that bought the Band together again was the realisation that their back catalogue of original songs had never made it to the studio.

The decision to put down the definitive 'record' of their time together could have been a big mistake. We can all be guilty of recalling past times through rose tinted glasses and the fact the songs came from a time 30 years ago meant there was a risk that the whole thing could simply be past its sell by date.

But no. What we were treated to was the proof that quality, energy and class will always live on. Well done guys. Now just keep it up!

The gig turned out to be better than an hour in the gym. The hearts were beating. We felt the Pulse. We were alive.

See what I did there? :-)

I have added a load of new pics to The Pulse Gallery:
