waterloo sloan review
last night the city of waterloo was treated to the return of the mighty
sloan. fear was felt by many as rumors abounded but it was packed and
everyone was there to rawk! Sloan made a concious attempt to play alot
of the songs that they did on their previous swing through town in
October. cool. The show began with Marcus Said, Patricks guitar was
crunchy as hell adding a cool effect not previously heard in that song. They seemed
to be having alot of fun playing for everyone as they seem to always do.
Murphy was his usual self attempting to incorporate multiple roq poses
into each song which is always good for a laugh. The setlist
incorporated things from smeared, peppermint, molluscs, twice removed,
and their new single. The highlight of the show which showed the average
age level of everyone and the audiences great grounding in roK history
evidenced by this list naming it as an "Embassy Five" song) was Sloan's
cover of an "MC5" song. ONe person yelled for the MC5 (it wasn't me).
The song rocked and then Andrew took the gutiar to finish the night off
with people of the sky and a great medley of cock rock guitar in
Sloan failed to disappoint again. Will it be the last time? Don't worry
about it see them now and you can tell the grand kids.
