Review 1 for Wisdom of Crowds
Absolutely amazing intimate gig
Jazz Cafe @
- London @
- Sun 8 Dec 2013 @
Opening act(s): Petter Carlsen @
Checked out the support, Petter Carlsen, a few days beforehand by buying his latest CD and, although much mellower than the music I usually listen too, was looking forward to see him live. Wow !!! What a talent !!! Poor bloke was all on his lonesome but this didn't seem to put him off. His guitar playing and his spectacular voice were stunning. Looking forward to catching him again, perhaps with his full band. Met him afterwards and seemed very humble.
I am a great fan of the vocalist's "other" band, Katatonia, so to be so close to the "action" at this very intimate venue was a real treat. Wisdom of Crowds really pulled off the songs from their only album with great aplomb. Jonas Renkse's voice was, as usual, phenomenal but I was also very impressed with, particularly, the keyboards and the soundscapes that he produced. Bruce Soord was also pretty animated and at times in danger of knocking either Jonas or the drummer off the tiny stage. Bit off-putting were a very few Pineapple Thief fans that balanced actual pineapples on their heads for almost the entire show; each to their own, I suppose, but in my eyes a bit stupid. After all, we were not watching Pineapple Thief. Sort of like me carrying a bunch of crows on my shoulders.
I for one cannot wait for the next Wisdom of Crowds album and then the next tour as the mix of Jonas Renkse and Bruce Soord goes together so well. Great choice of support as well.
