Launch The Reveals Music Player!

Band Info: Indie band from Brighton formed in 2003 by Ben Bodoano. No bullshit, no pretence, just good honest song-writing set against an electrifying backdrop. Following in the footsteps of bands like The Who, The Jam and Oasis the soundscape created has a distinct English quality anchored by a raw, unique vocal. Ye ye ye, what a band!

Revealios Gigaroo Review - Freebutt Brighton March 2008

March evenings are pretty cold this year and it was St.
Patrick's day, so I'm going to attribute these factors to the quite frankly
rubbish attendance at The Reveals, or Los Revealios, if you will, gig last
week. For all of you who missed it, here are a few personal highlights.
The Freebutt doesn't boast the most welcoming image in
Brighton, as you enter the venue through an unmarked black door into a simply
adorned (i.e. not at all), bar area, however I instantly felt more at home when
I spied a massive (well, reasonably large) Brothers Cider beer mat on the bar.
I believe it is now Mike's ambition to acquire this.
I watched The Reveals set sitting on a bar stool in the
middle of the room. Can't say I've ever watched a gig quite in that fashion
before, but I enjoyed it. Ben and Mike looked excellent in their matching
shoes, James (cardigan king) was sporting a nice little brown number and Rob
seemed pretty pleased with his new t-shirt if I recall. They do make an
attractive bunch. As for the music, which should probably be the focus of this,
a mixture of old and new tunes were thrown out there. I like their new stuff in
particular, although my current favourite is an oldie: 'Above and Below', which
was played, so I was happy. Mike was noticeably stiller on stage than is usual;
no windmills that night. I say run around Mike, if that's how you feel, you
always entertain me. Ben during one song (I forget which one he said) didn't
get enough air and started seeing spots. Although I reckon it would make an
interesting action shot to catch him falling, it probably isn't worth the pain.
I was however oblivious to this dilemma, so nicely recovered from Ben. Rob has
a great drumming face; it's basically one big smile and the recent addition of
a keyboard (played by James) into the musical jamboree works well. It looks
even better when it has the coolest of cool sunglasses balanced on it. To summarise, The Freebutt is possibly the loudest place on
earth and I went home with a nice ringing sound playing about in my head. A
sign of an evening well spent I like to think.
