The Underworld, Camden
Bigfoot are a five piece no-nonsense Melodic Hard Rock outfit formed some five years ago in Wigan, Lancashire, who are now on their ‘Farewell Tour’. The lifespan of a pop band is usually five years, so it’s disappointing but not unusual to see them calling it a day as they hit the stage at The Underworld, Camden Town NW1 in top gear!
Sandwiched in between the manic antics, but brilliant music of StOp,sToP! and the American Rock of Jeff Scott's headliner's SOTO, complete with a guest appearance from Inglorious's Nathan James - the riffs are flying from dual guitarists Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh, with top notch vocals from Sean Seabrook along with the tight rhythm section of Matt Avery on bass and Tom Aspinall on drums.
Most of the set comes from their self-titled album from 2017, the year we last saw them at this very same venue, with the big numbers ‘Tell Me A Lie’, ’The Fear’ and ‘Uninvited’ all delivered perfectly. The mix of stomping Rock and some swirling Rock ballads has something for everyone.
The show was evidently well rehearsed with a confident performance (even when your drummer changes the set order) and there was no sign on stage of a band about to split up. Guitarist Sam Millar has already released a solo EP (review coming soon) and their last show is in Manchester at the end of the September. I would recommend catching them on one of their last five dates if this really is the end? RIP Bigfoot 2014-2019.
