The Caves

16 May 2005

The Pleasure Unit, Bethnal Green

Having turned down several major record deals could be an issue for some bands, but not for Swansea’s The Caves, a band that certainly doesn’t need a big cheque to feel good about their music. From instrumental opener Be Good to Mama (hilarious song title, but serious music) to early single Wow Machine, it’s clear this unique sounding rock’n roll band could be destined to greater things than playing tiny Bethnal Green venues.

After presenting themselves with a simple “We are The Caves, we’re from Swansea, but you know it”, singer and guitarist Dai Gorwin launches in a set of songs with really different vibes, comprised of melodic gems and more uptempo numbers, among which the standout track Rock’n Roll Attitude – produced by a certain Danton Supple (Coldplay, anyone?). Ooh, and their debut album “This Way To The Caves” has just been released. On the very lucky indie label that is worth as much as them
