Band of Skulls

Last Tuesday night The Hi-Fi was absolutely packed for a sold-out show of the English band from Southampton, previously known as ‘Fleeing New York’ when they used to tour around the pubs of the Greater City of London.

From looking at Russel’s boutique pedal board, all lead to think that sound was going to be the highlight of the night. I even spotted some sticky tape on his guitar’s pickups, to help achieve that dirty muddy sound that defines Band of Skulls and some others iconic bands long the same lines such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

I had to run after the third or fourth song and I was lucky enough to be able to get out through the fire stair, to jump back to a quiet Tuesday night at Melbourne’s CBD with everyday pedestrians unaware of such a great band playing and a massive audience of cool kids gathering under Swanston Street.

On the way home, I bumped into my friend Ross, who gave me a lift home (jackpot!).


Thanks for reading.
