Adam and Eve gig review

Valeria Rispo witnessed Mama Matrix at the Adam and Eve last month, and lived to tell the tale…

The sheer size of the sound by this 5-piece band was way above the size of the main room at the Adam and Eve, which was full to the brim with fans. The set started with Daz’s huge voice screaming “Destroyer!!” a classic tune which set the fast and manic pace of the evening.

Clever and witty lyrics, accompanied by Anne’s dextrously gorgeous and hypnotising violin and a somewhat twisted jazzy drumbeat all the way, a dreamy and unexpected electric guitar and a very heavy & bassy tuba pushing through the night.

With all this going on you can’t help but be swept along blindly without a moment to stop and get a drink! Though they passed through a couple of somewhat slower tunes, even “Melancholy Flower”, which starts off slowly, speeds up to incredible velocity.

By the time they jumped into their classic song ‘Irene’ which incidentally, shows off Daz’s vocal genius and the band’s impeccable timing, the Adam and Eve didn’t know what had hit it. The whole place was jumping up and down with rarely-seen abandon.

New Mama Matrix EP in the oven!

After their storming performance at Digbeth’s Adam and Eve, Mama Matrix have returned to their kitchen, where they are currently stirring up a spicy music casserole for your delectation. Mmmm…smells good! Mama Matrix will be available for UK and European booking from May 15th onwards, please contact us for more details.

Get out your finest crockery, because the new EP will be launched before you can say,”Tea’s ready!” In the meantime, whet your audial appetite by visiting Mama Matrix on Myspace.
