The Gories

…lo and behold, to my amazement, after Saturday’s show, I’ve now seen The Gories do their thing threefold. And each time has been better than the last, as if they’ve picked up where they left off to become meaner and leaner. This time, they started with the obvious (“Hey, Hey We’re The Gories”), but as they announced, tonight’s performance delved into lesser known cuts from singles and comps. As such, we heard their wooly version of The Keggs’ “To Find Out” (included on Crypt’s Back from the Grave, Volume 2) and “You Little Nothing,” which showed off Kroha’s wily vocals. That same approach, with Dan taking lead instead of Mick, made “I Think I’ve Had It” standout early on too.

Still, it was the combination of Collins’ tenor and the thumping hipshake on the band’s best known tracks that proved to be the highlights. It is hard to think of a cut more pure in its intent than “Feral,” a near-perfect dissertation on the evils of the fairer sex, while the potency of “Sovereignty Flight” has never been measured by its number of chords. While the band joked about its lack of skill and even still managed to start a song in different keys from one another, it’s always been the manner in which it tapped into R&R’s central nervous system that defined them… [Agit Reader]

The Gories teamed with Mark Sultan and The Mighty Fine at Bell House on Saturday (1/28), one of two dates for the reactivated garage trio who also played the night before at Maxwell’s (on 1/27) with Bloodshot Bill and Boom Chick.
