The Friscos @ Oxjam Music Festival

  • Written by Sub Editor

The Friscos Perform @ Oxjam at The Lights, Andover
October 2013

The line up: Eben Taylor (Guitar/Vocals), Cameron Holland (Bass), Adam Lockington (Drums)

This three piece make a big noise. They opened with an original, which I think was called 'The Lazy of Nothing', although I couldn't be sure. But it's not about the name of the song. The riff was catchy, the bassist kept time (even considering that his strap unhooked itself) and the drummer kept good time, through the classic drum beats, and my favourite drumming addition: ghost notes!

The song had a somewhat retro feel, which was interesting and unique. Eben did an admirable job of keeping the song together during his guitar solo, which is a tough thing to do when you're the only guitarist, because you have to imply the chords through the melody.

The next orignal song had a cool intro riff, which reminded me of something from Extreme's heavier stuff. All the way through their set they appeared relaxed.

They played 'Time is Running Out' by Muse and for the most part did well in performing it, getting good unison stabs between the drums, guitar and bass. My only criticism would be the a couple of the notes in the tremolo picking sections.

They finished with a song called 'Blue Eyes', and the crowd were really excited about this, showing a strong following. The intro was cool, starting low, but getting bigger on the wing of a crescendo and the played out to a clapping audience. It was a good set.
