Fatal Figures are the members of The Blowtops latest, a band I'm just getting to know also on Big Neck Records. These guys are making it happen in way way western New York where it's winter six months a year. Buffalo was the big city we would occasionally drive to to either go across the border to drink in Canada or go to Darien Lake and see a huge show. I played with someone from Buffalo who would tell me about all kinds of cool shit that was happening and I imagined living there one day. Their latest builds on that garage intensity with some hardcore influences while keeping that raw, live sound.

Big Neck is SOLD on the OBN IIIs - Live Review


 

Scott and I rolled into the back room at the Black Cat and immediately the OBN IIIs started laying down some catchy rock n roll riffs.  They were loud, they were agressive, and their songs had dynamic range.  The music was great, the band was killing it, but the real winner was the lead singer Orville....

Recently I went down to the Black Cat in DC to meet Scott Wilson (Electricutions and NVs fame) for a few beers and I saw that Ex-Cult from Goner were playing.  I was pretty excited because Eric from Goner does not put out bad music and I have not seen a good show in a long time. 

Got to the Club, met Scott and started pouring beer down my throat.  I learned immediately that the OBN IIIs were opening for the Ex-Cult, I have heard some good things about them, but nothing spectacular.  Rich from Termbo just always told me that their records (put out by Tic Tac Totally) were okay.

I don't think I have ever seen a singer work the crowd like this guy, he was channeling a bit of Danzig and a lot of Iggy Pop and he was all over the place.  Rocking the f'n venue.  I was stunned, I have not seen a show, this good in a long time, by a band this good, with a lead singer that had such an amazing give and take with the crowd.  One minute they loved him, the next he was pissing them off, then back to rock and love!  It was a great set. Their song Nicky the Knife, got everyone into a frenzy at the end, because of the slow build up.

Why I know it was a great show, because it has been a week or more and I am still thinking about how great the band was and how charasmatic Orville as a frontman was.

The Ex-Cult hit the stage right afterward and they were damn good, but the OBN IIIs blew them away.

Big Neck is sold on the OBN IIIs and if any of those guys see this review we would love to do any record wiith them!
