Clutch - Brixton Academy

Clutch – Brixton Academy – 12/12/15

I had something of a late night last night travelling back from Brixton Academy to home in Dorset but it really was worth the trip.

I could not believe the volume of traffic in London at 11pm, it took me 45 minutes to travel eight miles as a result of traffic lights and the volume of traffic.  Thankfully I don’t live in a large city.

Anyway, Brixton Academy is a real old school rock venue and we were treated to an incredible evening entertainment by Swedish bands Greenleaf and Bombus.  Of course the main course was the fantastic Clutch who treated us to a set full of passion and energy.  High-voltage rock and roll indeed.

The only downside of Brixton Academy was that the lighting was absolutely dreadful for the support bands.  is it really too much to ask for a little bit of front lighting?  The lighting was excellent for Clutch so there is no reason that we couldn’t have had the same for the support.  Anyway, some photos for you to enjoy.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
