gigsplurge 21: the workhouse, caretaker, union kid, november 2000

The Workhouse, Caretaker & Union Kid, Bullingdon Arms, Oxford, 11 November 2000

Great music inspires great writing.

Local rag Nightshift on the Workhouse: "a sonic cathedral of sound".
Drowned in Sound on Union Kid: "dynamics which can be best described as dynamic ... But when Union Kid are sad, their music is sad. As you listen to the heartfelt lyrics and the music has been slowed right down, you can almost feel a frown coming on."
Skippscage--apparently--on Caretaker: "The sound of Caretaker tonight was fat - really fat - no… phat!"

Of all the nights our outfit organized at the Bully, this may have been the most enjoyable, in that it was Peel-tastic, short, and headlined by Oxford's greatest band.
