The Paper Scissors @ Spectrum

The Paper Scissors on Friday night at Spectrum was how all live music should be. Fun, vital, passionate and that feeling of connecting with the band. The night was serving as the album launch of their debut album "Less Talk More Paper Scissors". Playing a short but ecstatic set they stormed through their material, proving once again that their formidable live reputation is well deserved. They opened with "Oxygen Accident" and didn't let up after that. Jai Pine's voice is something to behold, soulful and powerful it always resonates strongly. And the drumming was amazing, power and rhythm squared. Highlight songs for me were "Tipped Hat" and "Grammar", whilst "Yamanote Line" was a sure fire singalong. The drummer's cap said it all "Satisfaction Guaranteed"-How Apt.

Supports were excellent. Second time for me seeing Cuthbert and the Nightwalkers was just as good as the first. Their sound was a little edgier, but the beautiful harmonies were still there. I really look forward to them producing some more recorded material in the future. Opening act Richard in Your Mind once again proved that their quixotic blend of folk and psychedelic rock is very entertaining. All in all, a great night of local music.
