24 April 2013 – Veruca Salt – Number One Blind, Seether & All Hail Me – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Veruca Salt are the worst band I have ever seen live.  They were drunk… or high…. or something.  They were out of tune and bored.

For example, this song, a hard-driving catchy slow jam…. full of energy and feeling in the video…. all sorts of angst….. completely emotionless live.


And still, this song, a straight-ahead rock song that got pigeonholed as “alternative” in the mid-90’s,  didn’t suck.  Even a terrible live band, or at least one having an off day, could not screw up the high energy and excitement of this song.

Disappointingly, they also failed me on this song, which was flat.  Pity – the song is a throwback to the light metal of the 80’s, and is just as full of energy as their biggest hit.
