Belsonic 09 - Jerry Fish & The Mudbug Club
Describe in a tweet: Top festival fodder from pros and stars.
What went down: Swampy bayou blues and sleaze all the way, with a little splash of jive, latin and funk. And Jerry is a star, he knows how to work a crowd perfectly, laughing with us (and at us), constantly taking the mick. 'My Friend Jim' is the easy-to-dance-to Dr John style funk, but we're not quite liquored up enough to take advantage. Jerry attempts to remedy this by handing out beer vouchers and going walkies amongst an increasingly cheery crowd, creating a circle of good hope and demanding group hugs. We all love it and we sing all to 'Let It Roll' to close in a preacher's prayer.
The highlight: 'It Takes Balls To Be A Butterfly' is about our little city, easy rolling afternoon funk. We love it, they love us.
