The 21st January proved a frenetic lively Friday night at the Library in Leeds at the 360 Club. We dropped in and watched the Claire Cameron Band a while. ‘Well Claire’s done it again, a wonderful performance, wowing the packed noisy throng with her sleek elegant looks, powerfully evocative, passionate voice, personal lyrics and restrained yet paradoxically free almost improvised keyboarding. This combined with intricate hand percussion on a pair of conga’s and a cymbal by Jim Gaylard and distinctive rhythmic guitaring by Pete Nash produce a purely contemporary experience and a band truly worth travelling to see.
