5.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying and brilliant..., 26 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Live at the Brixton Prison Ep (Audio CD)
Cable truly were unique. Sadly no more, this short ep is testament to their unique 'art-rock' style of mental guitar skullduggery. Genuinely recorded in front of an audience of long term convicts in the chapel of Brixton Prison, this is a worthy addition to the record collection of any fans of agitated guitar music.
Fuelled by the unbelievable drumming of Richie Mills and driven by Peter Darrington's booming basslines, this is a good opportunity for those who never saw Cable live to experience the power of their performance.
Included is the best available version of their best song (and always their live closing number) 'Oubliette', their almost-top 40 hit 'Blue Birds Are Blue' and two semi-ironic Johnny Cash covers that are hilarious but stunningly different.
What also comes across is their apparent nerves at performing in front of such an unusual audience, Matt Baggalley's vocals are at times shaky and the crowd's applause has a very unnerving feel to it, but the overrall experience is very Cable!!
Included on the CD case are screen shots from their short film 'When Animals Attack' which is loosely based on this particular gig. Well worth seeing if you get the chance.
In summary then, if you've heard any of Cable's albums and don't believe their live shows could be as impressive, listen to this and be amazed. If they were still around, Cable would have been playing stadiums by now....
