Melodramas and Gaz

The Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea, Portsmouth.
April 18th, 2013

We went to see Melodramas supporting Gaz Coombes at The Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea, Portsmouth the other night.

As friends of local band Melodramas we couldn't miss this gig, especially as we couldn't make the previous one at The Wedgewood Rooms. They played a 30 minute set which was really tight and very impressive. Good to see them and have a catch up after their set. You can see the video for 'Elephant' here.

Gaz Coombes came on stage at 10pm to a very appreciative audience to play tracks from his new solo album entitled 'Here Come The Bombs'. He played an absolutely storming set, on for 1hr and 15 mins, the latter 15 mins being a few classic Supergrass tracks like 'Moving'.

He's still got it for sure, the voice, lyrics and charisma. Our favourite track from the album is 'Break the Silence', video seen below.

Go see him if you get a chance, especially if he plays at a small venue like The Wedgewood Rooms.
