The Kings Of Oblivion

Sunday 8th March 2015

The Iron Horse, Sidcup

The Iron Horse in Sidcup is renowned in the past for its leaning towards heavy metal bands. Not any longer as was witnessed on Sunday afternoon as the Kings of Oblivion rode into town - admittedly the name does suggest links with the dark side but that couldn't be further from the truth. Set in the 60's and 70's and leaning heavily toward the psychedelic end of the music genre the band took us on a world tour of 'classics' that often left you thinking I know that song but who sang it!! Luckily lead singer Chris Lewington was there to help and you could almost hear the crowd murmur "of course"!! The great thing about this band is that they don't play the same old type of track which can often lead to you looking at your watch - sorry mobile these days - wondering when the end is coming! It's more a case of what's next and at one stage we went from the USA to Holland and then back to good old Blighty. The band don't take themselves that seriously but are more than competent in what they do and leave you with a good feeling which can't be bad - not sure about the suit though Chris :-) Look forward to working with these guys (and Jeanette of course) in the future!
