Stubborn/The Saffs @ The Boatrace, Cambridge

The Saffs--not from Saffron Walden thankfully, they were formerly Saffron's Daughter--peddle a familiar brand of trebly guitar pop. Think Mega City 4 and Ludicrous Lollipops, although with a tendency to stretch the songs a little longer than either. They jump around alot, made easier on this occasion by soundman Rob gaffer-taping the guitar-player's dungarees up!

No such problem for Stubborn, their sartorial choice being long shorts with adequate support..and the music can stand up for itself too. There's no getting away from the Rage Against the Machine comparisons, but with the odd bit of extra percussion and a tendency towards hardcore, there's plenty of originality to come.
