WOW 24/7’s Review Of My “Shambolic” Show On Thursday

“Too much sausage, I can’t deal with it, man,” mumbles James Gage (a.k.a Passion Pusher) in reaction to the lack of woman watching his live band. It’s clear from the offset that the latest Pale Imitation gig at Henry’s Cellar Bar lacks the emotional poignancy of Meursault’s swansong at Queen’s Hall the previous night. But with Glasgow’s Deathcats headlining tonight, it should be a right good ol’ time anyway.

First of all we have the aforementioned Passion Pusher from Ednburgh. When played live, Gage’s lazy lo-fi project sounds like a band who have never set foot outside the studio, constantly jamming and not worrying a jot about honing skills or achieving any particular status. They just enjoy playing music. Andrew Burns of alansmithee fame twiddles on the bass, while Gage fritters away at the guitar with catchy riffs. Burns and Gage are like a comedy duo you’d find at a free Fringe show, and it feels too much like the crowd is watching a Scottish reboot of Wayne’s World. It’s also hard not to shake that early support act feeling. But at least they show how fun it is just to play in a band.
