Friday night saw me taking up a seat at Redbourn Club for their local bands showcase evening, like previous showcase evenings it was again a complete sell out.
The two bands tonight were the well- known, Scrapyard Dogs and The Common Faults. It was The Common Faults I was there reviewing .
Common Faults are a five piece band from Scunthorpe & Grimsby made up of singer & guitarist Steve, Andreas on Bass Guitar, Mikey on Lead Guitar, Dave on Rhythm Guitar and last but not least Danielle on Drums.
Common Faults opened the show with a set which consisted of 15 numbers. It took the audience through a journey of time, from 1958 right up to 2000s. The band turned out to be very tight in there performance and excellent musicians as they introduced the audience to music from the likes of Primal Scream , Red Hot Chili Peppers, Simple Minds, Blur, The Spin Doctors, Chuck Berry and Thin Lizzy added to the mix.
It would not surprise me to find out that this band had the capability to play anything. The Bass Guitar and Drums in the band are exceptional but as a band; all of the band are exceptional musicians.
Scrapyard Dogs commented that Common Faults were extremely good & highly recommended if this genre of music is to your taste. This band is a must see. I do know that in the not too distant future The Common Faults will be at The Penny Bank in Scunthorpe for Sunday Live so catch them then!
