Sound: The sound was pretty amazing for a pub. I'll break it down: Henry's (vocal) voice was very impressive, had a good cutting tone and a perfect rock feel. CJ's (rhythm guitar) stlye fitted well into the band as a whole giving a great full tone from her Tele. Tight and well rehearsed. Tom (drums) was very good. Nice diversity and strong driving rhythm, again well rehearsed but not stale. Niel (bass) has nice strong bass sounds, again fitting well into the bands overall resonance. Mark (lead/rhythm guitar) was very slick. One of the best behind an LP and on a Wah since you know who. // 10

Perfomance: Overall the band gave a brilliant performance. Nice style and good pace kept the audience very happy and apart from Henry's slight mishaps with flying mics it all ran smoothly. Good strong opening with the single "Oh Yeah" followed by a good solid set never more than briefly interrupted, with a well deserved encore. This band would definately excellent in a larger venue. // 10

Overall Impression: Yankee Nine Niner at the Brickmakers in Norwich on Wed the 22nd of March. I only saw the last song and half from the support who sounded pretty cool. I've heard YNN being refferred to as a cross breed of Guns N'Roses and Aerosmith, who as a result sound alot like the Darkness. This is an analogy I'm sure about, the hard rock style of GnR was present as were the Aerosmith influences but they seemed alot more real than the Darkness who have seemed to die out recently. Free entry justified the venues less than Wembley sound, but it seemed to me that this is the kind of band who could fill a 90ft wide stage and still sound great. I'm definately gonna try to go to another gig before Wembley and can't wait for the album. Great sound, great performance, great band. // 10
