Christmas boxed clever

After my little weekend away, it was indeed a delight to be back in the Phoenix FM studio, and even more as the night before I was in Leigh-on-Sea, enjoying the latest event arranged by BAS Productions- The Christmas Box.

The Christmas Box was the big old end to 2012, with three great new bands playing live at The Ship in old Leigh-on-Sea. First on the bill was Oberheim, who gave us their very first live performance. A sound that had a roll of pop and electro rock with a subtle nod towards Depeche Mode. The band are better know as the number Depeche Mode covers band: Speak & Spell, and proved that as Oberheim they can stand on their own feet with great songs.

Next up were two Brothers, collectively known as Automatic Writing, a sound that has a hazy psychedelic electro vibe – before they took to the stage the guys chatted to me back stage….

Headlining The Christmas Box was a duo, Curxes, joined tonight by the Drummer from The Strangers. A spectacular performance, has to be said as not only did their sound captivate but the sensual Roberta took her stage to the dance floor and sand within the dancing masses, bringing the audience right into the world of Curxes. The show ended with a bitter sweet Christmas song, which is now attached to our little pre-show chat….which you can enjoy again>

Twas a really wonderful Christmas Box of musical talent, which included DJ sets by The Electricity Club (TEC) Steve Grey and Chi Ming Lai, with other performers of this years BAS II subtly enjoying just being part of the audience- Modovar, Peter Steer from Tenek, Sinestar, Electro Kill Machine’s Greg Damiano and Lee Sargent……I also spotted Global Citizen’s Rich Mills.
Special thanks to Deb & Martin, and indeed ALL at Bas Productions for another cracker of a night- So as its Christmas, lets raise a glass and say here’s to BAS3 in May bank Holiday…which promises another top draw line up.
