The Fringe is On!

Yup, before the Big Weekend, the Fringe gigs started in style on Monday. I popped down to the 12 Bar to see the four bands playing on Monday, and the place was rammed! The Karlucci March were on first and played a belter, really filling the stage and obviously have a huge local following. The Volt, from Bath, played bluesy rock'n'roll incredibly well, mixing it with their own touch, and have bee really busy promoting themselves over the last year.
The Shebeats are three girls who most certainly know how to pen a fuzz rock tune or two too. Healdiners The Alfonz seem to be the toast of Swindon at the moment, and rightly so; they were confident, have good tunes, and left us wanting more. Their subtle indie sounded good at this great venue, which has a few brilliantly named cover bands coming up like Mentallica and Purple Rain (Prince innit!)
