Review of Corb Lund - 27th March 2006 © Paul Abraham

Corb – Radio 2 the Roscoe

After appearing on the Bob Harris Country show on Radio 2, the Corb Lund band returned to the New Roscoe in Leeds for the next leg of their successful UK Tour. Despite it being a miserable Monday night outside, inside the audience was transported to the Rockies and Grizzly Bears of Canada in the distinctive style which Corb Lund and his band are now famed for. The quality of the musicians, and Corb’s distinctive voice enable the audience to foot-tap their way through the song “Always Keep an Edge on your Knife”, smell the burning embers in “The Truth Comes Out” or play air guitar to the brilliant “Bluesy” track “Counterfeiter’s Blues” such is the versatility of this band. One could imagine the champion of the downtrodden cowboys and the like, Johnny Cash listening to the lyrics of the songs and nodding in acknowledgement. Their excellent new album, titled “Hair in my Eyes Like a Highland Steer” is sure to propel the bands popularity even further. The “live music” lovers of Leeds owe John Keenan a huge debt of gratitude for enabling them to see top-line bands like these on a regular basis, without JFK the live music scene in Leeds could have become a musical wasteland, instead of the vibrancy the city now enjoys musically.

This website has been down to the doctors to make it feel good and alright.
