Hungry Kids of Hungary


Brisbane band ‘Hungry Kids of Hungary’ is one of those bands that I have heard of for a few years but never really had the chance to go see live. In my opinion they have a bit of ‘The Rentals’ -that by-product of 'Weezer' that Matt Sharp put together when he couldn´t stand ‘River Cuomo’ anymore-, the Shins (listen to Scattered Diamonds!), 'the Kooks'… and a few more things. Maybe the fact that one of the band members spent some time in England has something to do with this.

But don´t get me wrong: they are good. The key is that they manage to combine all this influences pretty well and get a nice clean and catchy sound that is easy to listen and –judge by yourself looking at the first row of attendants at the Northcote Social Club- appeals girls without annoying us guys.  Have a listen if you don´t believe me!

I miss the last two songs cos my friends were getting really tired and we had a busy day, but it was a really great gig to watch on the Melbourne Cup eve.

The opening band -'Gung Ho'- goes in Black and White this time. This is just me... being nostalgic of the good old days in the darkroom developing ILFORD HP5 and Kodak T-MAX 400.

Thanks for reading.
