KOSHEEN, King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow, April 7.
HEAVEN help the other members of Kosheen if Sian Evans ever decides to go solo.
Because - despite the obvious talents of DJs Darren Decoder and Markee Substance - their singer had all the makings of a real star at this gig. As she pointed out, there are two sides to Kosheen's music. One is the slower, more commercial electronica of Face In A Crowd and new single Hungry, which show off Evans' songwriting skills to the full.
Then, of course, there are the darker, breakbeat anthems such as (Slip 'N' Slide) Suicide, Empty Skies and fans' favourite Hide U, all of which had the audience jostling for space and climbing on seats in order to dance. On what was a warm enough night already, Evans' infectious rabble-rousing and calls for the crowd to get moving helped turn the packed Tut's into a real sweatbox.
As a live act, therefore, Kosheen come highly recommended.
GIRL power is on the agenda this week with Shirley Manson, of Garbage, and Atomic Kittens, Natasha, Liz and Jenny, Mailmusic's headline acts. JJ Gilmour and Miles Hunt hit back for the lads.
