29 March 2006: Ginger & the Sonic Circus - Islington Academy, London, England, UK
Travelled from Malta to London.
Aim – To see Ginger & the Sonic Circus perform live at Islington Academy on the 29th March 2006.
Results - Brilliant, electrifying , awesome …..
Anyone who missed it. I feel sorry for you!!
Ginger plus all other 10 musicians have an unearthly magic which is so powerful on stage, it's electric. The first notes of “UGLY” from the latest album “Valor del Corazon”, put everyone in a lovely mood and from then on it was just sing, dance and cheer.
Guitars, keyboards, drums, some brilliant sax playing, backing vocals and of course the one and only Ginger filled the stage with vibrant riffs and flying dreadlocks.
Time just flew and all wanted more.
“10 Flaws Down” and “The Man who cheated Death” ended the set before the encore with that intense passion only Ginger's voice can bring out.
The encore included covers from Elvis Costello, Bowie and the Wildhearts track “29 x the Pain”, with a painful looking Cyborg Show.
Luckily for us our rendezvous with Ginger did not end here! We got to meet him and the rest of the band and got to know Ginger and Connie Bloom.
The first word that comes to mind about Ginger is Vibrant. He radiates positive energy and his love for music shows in all his words. The world needs people like him, especially the music one.
He was flying to New York a few days later and we are sure the New Yorkers will have a great time.
Good luck to Ginger and we always want to hear more and thanks for being who you are!
All you people who did not buy Ginger's CD go and get it now!!
