Gig review: Bad Touch and Broken Witt Rebels – The Borderline, London, 8/4/17

Broken Witt Rebels and Bad Touch are both bands that we’ve featured on Rock and Roll. Both have released some awesome songs and are getting well-deserved attention from the national music press and radio.

Last night the two bands were playing the Planet Rock organised Roadstars gig at The Borderline in London. I’d never seen either band live and was looking forward to it. The Roadstars tour has had some fantastic reviews. The show at The Borderline was the last night of the tour.

Bad Touch

First on stage last night in this co-headlining tour were Bad Touch. I’ve featured a couple of their tracks as Track of the Day on the blog. They have two great albums and played a selection of songs from both, including: “99%”, “Heartbreaker Soulshaker”, “My Mother Told Me”, “Wise Water”, “Good On Me (Jeans Song)”, “Waiting for This”, and “Take Your Time”. Their music has a feel-good factor with a classic rock sound.

The Borderline was almost full and there was a great atmosphere. Many people were singing along and dancing. A highlight for me was when the band played an excellent version one of my all-time favourite songs, The Black Crowes’ “Hard to Handle” πŸ™‚

I really enjoyed their set and I think they’re a band to watch; they are definitely carrying the torch of classic-sounding great rock music.

Broken Witt Rebels

Broken Witt Rebels were up next. I wasn’t very familiar with their music but had heard a few of their more well-known songs and had listened to their EPs on Spotify before the show. They play Blues-Rock and have some outstanding tracks. This is a talented band of musicians and the lead singer, Danny Core, is the perfect frontman; he puts on a very passionate performance and his vocals are flawless.

The band played for an hour and treated fans to a couple of new songs, including one called “Snake Eyes”, as well as playing their hits “Low” and “Guns”. Among the other songs they played, were: “Howlin'”, “Getaway Man”, “Bang Bang”, and “Georgia Pine”.

They were joined on stage at the end by Stevie Westwood, lead singer of Bad Touch.

It was a great night of Rock music. These are two bands that are on their way to the top. Catch them live if you can!
