Deferred Sucess Live @ ThingamaGig 21/07/12
Those lovealbe folk/punk chaps Deferred Sucess (yes, that is the right of spelling it before you ask) were given the honour of closing the 2nd stage at the ThingamaGig charity festival at the New White Hart pub in Billericay, and in true form, they delivered a singalong set of epic proportion.
From the moment opener 'Bored' kicked in, the crowd are clearly up for sing and dance, and the band are quite clearly up for the "dare you to break the stage" challenge that's been thrown down, by leaping and stomping without any care in the world. Sensing the crowd's appetie, they blast through 2 covers - Carter USM's 'Sherriff Fatman' and James' one and only hit, 'Sit Down', which sends everyone into some kind of delirium. With the additonal of Ed Rome (The Big/Ed Rome & The Connectors) on mandolin, Deferred sound immense.
In their vain attempts to break the stage, they end up killing the power to the stage during 'Don't Worry About It', which prompts vocalist/Guitarist Doozer and harmonica-weilding Rich to pile into the crowd for an imprmptu unplugged/singalong section to the song.
One thing you get with Deferred Sucess is audience participation. Everyone sings loudly to the chorus of 'Ode To The Memory of Twat Rock' and the memorable 'Cider On The Beach'. Even the kids gets involved with percussion being passed out during the finale of 'Get Up And Do It Again'. It's all excellent stuff in the alcohol fuelled crowd enjoying the sadly setting sunshine.
So, if you've never seen Deferred Sucess before, make sure you do, they're bound to be playing a festival near you soon....
