|Glossy Jesus, Photo Wo.|
Glossy Jesus is built around singer/guitarist Maarten van den Hoonaard and Maarten Stuifbergen,
singer/keyboardist. Both sing alternate lead, the rockers by the former Maarten, the piano based, ballads songs by the latter. On bass and background vocals there is Xavier Baudet, who clearly knows what he's doing. He manages to weave in and out of the rhythm thus supporting rhythm and melody, something that makes a bass so much more than just a supporting instrument. On drums is the "best looking and youngest" band member, Tiuri van der Drift. This makes Glossy Jesus a band, much more than I remember from the support gig in spring 2012. A band that is tight and rocking from loud to smooth, with dynamics in all the right places. A band deserving a much bigger audience than present in Q-Bus this Friday. Now it's about finding the right song to go to 3FM and onwards to Serious Talent.
The songs played made me very curious to the new album. Chances are it will be reviewed on these pages soon.
