French Crops live review...

Now we here at Mixed Musing headquarters like to think we know a good band when we hear one, and a few weeks ago when one of the guys from French Crops contacted us we discovered, what we believed, to be a very promising band, and tonight we went to discover if they could actually transform across a promising record to the live arena...

Being first on and facing a half empty room it was no easy challenge for the boys but they appeared with a swagger and braced with an armoury of banging tunes they thrashed out pure classic rock and roll. “Jack in the box” and “know How” got the crowd moving, as friends and fans of the band led the way but what really proved the defining moment was penultimate song, “The Avery” having now filled the room with an eager crowd the boys ripped into their debut video/single with devastating ease, foot tapping turned into full on jumping and the crowd was in the palm of the bands hand.

Tonight proved why French Crops are one of London’s hottest unsigned bands and you had better get into them now before they launch into the mainstream. Our only criticism?  The set wasn’t long enough, and the guitar heads had too much excess string which kept flashing in the lights and could have been cut off, but that’s pointless criticism for the sake of it, lads, you smashed it tonight and we’ll definitely be at your next gig. Awesome stuff.
