I’m a big fan of cover bands and would rather listen to good cover than a shitty original. Sure, Beijing has its share with The Beijing Beatles ( apparently 2 different bands), Purple Smog or Muse among others. Still, the reigning kings of the Cover Band scene, years later, are still Dirty Deeds with Kaiser Kuo and Jaime Welton at the helm. Rush Hour might aspire to get there if the members stick around and play often enough.
When i caught them a week ago, you could easily notice the improvements when compared to their first go a little while back. Dave’s voice is more up to it and the Marcus is getting more comfortable with his drumming. Kaiser can play those songs with his eyes closed.
That particular friday, they did Free Will, La Villa Strangiato and Red Barchetta (see video below).. pretty cool guys, keep it up! I’d love to here Temple of Syrinx whenever you get around to it
Not bad, eh?
