Live: Big Sexy Noise @ Gagarin 205 (Athens, November 10th, 2018)

Big Sexy Noise, the blues-punk band that came to be about a decade ago when Lydia Lunch joined forces with Gallon Drunk, is on the road again, preaching their sexy, noisy and indeed big rock 'n' roll gospel to the faithful!

Without a new record, at least for the time being, the tight, raunchy hour-long set the band presented at their second Gagarin 205 gig (read all about their first one from 2011 here) comprised of songs their fans already knew from their two older releases, 2009's "Big Sexy Noise" and 2011's "Trust The Witch", with highlights including "Your Love Don't Pay My Rent", "Kill Your Sons", "Cross the Line", "Collision Course".

The explosive rock energy coming from James Johnston's guitar and Ian White's drums was truly remarkable, making you forget the lack of other instruments and mainly that of Terry Edwards saxophone who was not part of the band this time. The focus of attention though could not be anyone else than Lydia Lunch and her ferocious voice who commanded the stage like a rock witch who you don't want to cross, sipping her wine and orchestrating the big sexy noise of her band.

The night opened with a set from Omega Ray, a new psych rock band led by George Karanikolas of The Last Drive, who presented songs from their 2017 album "Ω-Ray", a different, more trippy experience from what we've heard over the years from his other projects.
