I first discovered Die So Fluid on a lamp post poster in Camden and decided to check them out after feeling bereft of old faves disappearing such as Curve. I certainly was never disappointed when I listened to the powerful music behind the strong poster image.
Die So Fluid commanded the stage at the 333 club with another spectacular gig which can only be described as brain blasting rock. Grog is an amazing powerful performer who owns the stage; she combines fantastic vocals with throbbing baselines – no mean feat and an amazing role model for any budding ladies who want to swallow a microphone. Drew, the cool guitarist, provided the dreamy dramatic powerful melodies with his own inimitable style which make DSF’s sound their own. Al provided the throb on drum giving DSF their driving drama on stage.
I brought my friend along – an exotic Estonian- who was blown away with Miss Grog’s formidable intense and charismatic vocals. I do not like to pigeonhole singers but this band needs to be bigger and better known, so, if I have to describe them in a category, I would say that Grog is a seductive twist on Suzi Quattro and Siouxsie Sioux on speed.
I love everything about DSF live- Miss Grog’s leather studded outfit with her two cheeky horns- how DID you keep them up? ; her humility and great sense of humour but most of all, leaving the show feeling that it was worth queuing up to buy those much coveted last remaining tickets. Grog and the guys never fail to satisfy.
