Goat Girl at The Wedgewood Rooms review: '˜TheyÂ rattle through their debut album with the minimum of fuss'
The stage was suitably attired for All Hallows Eve at the Wedgewood Rooms, andÂ Goat Girl joined in the fun dressed in whatÂ one would assume is not their usual stage attire of Mrs Doubtfire granny dresses and pearls.
Recently awarded, along with Idles, theÂ title of Q Magazine's Best Breakthrough Act, there could be a danger of them beingÂ caught like the proverbialÂ rabbit in the headlightsÂ from all the new attentionÂ and suffering aÂ similar curse to the one so often experience by Mercury Prize winners.Â But the all-femaleÂ four-piece from south London were having none of it with a radiant, confident performance.
Lead singer Lottie 'ClottieÂ Cream' is an oddly beguiling front woman, with a subtle edge to her vocals, drummer Rosy Bones (I love bands with great stage names) has a deftness of touch which set the bands apart from the pack.
Goat Girl rattle through their debut album with the minimum of fuss and little crowd connection save for the occasional 'thank you', not that this bothers the busy crowd which sways with affectionÂ to the sonics grooves served up.
All too soon,after 45mins or so and a quickÂ encore the crowdÂ dutifully file out, enthralled by the show.
