Baba Naga, Bo Ningen.

Post by sq225917 » Sun Oct 04, 2015 7:45 pm

Went out last night for Mark's birthday to see Bo Ningen play at the Abbeydale Picture House. A suitably run down and ramshackle venue, with sloping floors, flaking paint and an excellent vibe.

The support act were Baba Naga a, completely unknown to me, three piece. They came on and started slowly, playing rolling, deep, heavy, power psychedelia. Not white rabbit, San Francisco, more reminiscent of early Hawkwind with a touch of Interstellar Overdrive period Pink Floyd and some occasional overtones of My Bloody Valentine.

At first I thought they were just going to be by the numbers, but they built the music Into a deliciously enveloping wall of sound that retained impressive agility and a light almost jazzy fleetnes of foot. It never sounded lost, or went off the boil, it just built and built Into a swirling climax after 40 minutes of punishingly heavy, psychedelic driving, discovery.

They were epic.

Then the headliners came on...
One more Paradise left to complete.

Baba Naga have just released a two song 10" - the first track is also the first track they played at my birthday - obviously I have now ordered it.

Some of the best 'power' psychedelia I've ever heard - get it now! :)
