A Hawk and a Hacksaw and the Hun Hangar Ensemble @ Bush Hall, 11 May 2007

I went to see A Hawk and a Hacksaw play with their Hungarian buddies, the Hun Hangar Ensemble on Friday night at Bush Hall. It was an amazing gig. That plus Electrelane on Wednesday made last week one hell of a week for live music.

Rather than my usual review here, you can read it instead at Drowned in Sound. That just leaves me to say that I should have specified the score when I sent the review (I’d have easily given it 9/10) and post some pictures of the gig, with a couple of mp3s – one from the excellent new A Hawk and a Hacksaw and the Hun Hangar Ensemble EP and one from the 2005 album Darkness at Noon.

I have more pics at my Flickr.

Buy the EP, and the previous albums.

Ah yes! I still find it funny that there are two British music bloggers called Tim Murray! Not sure about the regular DiS reviews - I guess it's a case of them calling me. Who knows...?
