Retribution Gospel Choir

Posted by jill on April 21, 2008

So after a Saturday night in a church, listening to Low play Low songs, Monday night was spent in the smaller environment of the Water Rats, listening to the Retribution Gospel Choir play mainly Low songs. Retribution Gospel Choir is Alan Sparhawk from Low’s other band. In Low, as we saw on Saturday night, Mimi keeps Alan under control, occasionally glancing over to stop him from rocking out a bit too much. Without Mimi, under the name of Retribution Gospel Choir, Alan can thrash his guitar as much as he likes.

It was a bit like watching three men just messing around in the garage on a Sunday afternoon, having the freedom to just mess around, and interpret songs in a different way. Their set was over just that little bit too soon, but not before a great (but slightly messy) cover of Ziggy Stardust.
