A gig review from June, 1979.
4th paragraph in – OUCH!! But *kinda* constructive. If a review can be both bitchingly scathing yet constructive?! I’m not sure you could quite accuse them of “no stage presence” – I found Jim mesmerising from the outset. And obviously he (the reviewer) was not sold by epics like Pleasantly Disturbed (a very early Minds masterpiece) – but they *did* “experiment and improve” but probably not in the way this guy meant, and certainly *not* by taking “time out”! How on earth is “taking time out” going to help you improve as a live band?! WTF?!
Still, I love sharing these early snippets as I always believe the bhoys get the last laugh.
