26/02/2011 - Chalk and Cheese - Europe (support from Voodoo Johnson) – UK Birmingham Academy 18/2/2011

"I’m not sure if it’s my imagination, failing memory, or a growing trend at rock gigs but support bands are getting stronger and stronger.

I recall back in the mid eighties it wasn’t unusual for boos, heckles and bottles to see off all but the most dedicated support acts back to the dressing room.

At first I did fear for Voodoo Johnson – although not spring chickens, they are an up and coming local band, having released one LP and one EP to critical approval - “best debut since Appetite for Destruction” probably being the most outlandish claim made for 2010’s admittedly impressive 10,000 Horses."

See what else Tobester has to say about Voodoo Johnson and Europe - 'Chalk and Cheese' - here!
