The Shed, Yeoman Street, Leicester
Thats not a word I use very often. Neither is speechless.
However, right now, at this moment, they are the only two that spring
to mind after watching Fulc for the first time. The thing is, I feel as
though I have just witnessed the inaugural Pistols gig, or Nirvana
at the old Duck and Trumpet, or an early Pixies gig all legends
in their own fields, and I believe its no exaggeration when I say
that Fulc are up there with the best of them. I have a severe case of
lockjaw now, having stood with my mouth gaping open for the duration of
the gig, such was the effect of the band. I must admit, having heard the
relentless energy of the wonderfully crafted tracks on both eps Void
and The Fallen, I was doubtful whether the four piece would
be able to reproduce the quality live. I neednt have worried. Not
only did they reproduce in mammoth proportions, but the pure stage presence
of frontman Duane Walker, coupled with the ingenious originality of Rik
Clays guitar riffs and the overall togetherness of the rest of the
band, make Fulc a sparkling proposition to the rest of the music world.
I would try to describe them musically, but Ill be honest, Im
not sure I can. All I will say is Go and see this band. They are
the best live act I have seen in five years.
