Caves @ The Hope Brighton 24.07.10

Caves (gig picture coming soon!) were on tour with Good Luck when they reached the sunny shores of Brighton.  I’d heard a lot of good things about them but hadn’t yet heard either their 7″ on Specialist Subject Records or their split 10″ (with Calvinball, Pure Graft and Big City Plan) on Records or it Didn’t Happen.  What I did know was that the trio were fronted by Lou from Flamingo 50 a phenomenal power-pop-punk band from Liverpool who I never caught live so I was very interested to see if Caves shared any of the same influences.  After seeing them live I am rather happy to say that they are without a doubt (and yes I know I say this a lot..!) one of the best UK punk bands I have seen for quite some time; though definately coming from a similar place as Flamingo 50 (with Lou at the helm with her fantastic voice and guitar playing there were always going to be comparisons) the band steer clear of just being F50 part 2 by going down a more introspective route with a more Superchunk, Lemonheads vibe which is never ever a bad thing.

Check out this video of them playing Homeward Bound and Torn it Down from the gig, then download their set, fall in love with it then go buy both their records.
