The Pimps of Sound 19th July 2012 – Leederville Hotel

Gig Details:

Band : The Pimps of Sound

Date : Thursday 19th July 2012

Time : 7:15pm

Venue : The Leederville Hotel.

On Thursday the 19th of July The Pimps of Sound the Pimps of sound performed their first of to shows for the evening as the opening act at the Leederville Hotel’s Leederville Loungeroom, an evening dedicated to promoting and supporting the best of Perth’s original local bands, comedians and open Micers of al description with a set running from 7:15 – 8:00pm.

This show is the first since the Massive Music Explosion promoted and organised by The Pimps of Sound at the Norfolk Basement on the 22nd of June and was also the first show which featured the powerful vocals of Marnie Kent. The Pimps, consisting of Rob Ferrari on bass and Zen Fusion on electric drums and loops and samples, have worked hard to create a powerful and memorable set of original music which is having an impact through the local drum and bass scene in Perth. These well known songs were given a fresh approach for these shows due to the direction vocalist Marnie Kent decided to take the songs with her interpretation of a new set of lyrics to any that had been previously been used at other Pimps gigs.

I personally feel that one of the exciting elements of the Pimps of Sound is the featuring of various vocalists and the integration of their lyrical approach into the fluid and smooth style that has become synonymous with The Pimps of Sound style.

The evening began with Cubious and continued with the songs UndoneAin’t No Sunshine, Discipline, Sarvo and the debut performance of the song Abandon. The evening also featured the MC skills of Defyre on the tracks Sarvo, Dicsipline and Undone as well as saxophone solos throughout the evening provided by me, Simon Montgomery.

A huge thanks to Rob and Zen with The Pimps of Sound for giving me the opportunity to play with them again. It is always a pleasure to play with amazing and talented musicians. Thanks also Marnie Kent and Defyre, two more incredible local Perth people with an enormous amount of talent. Finally thank you to the Leederville Hotel for the opportunity to be a part of The Leederville Lounge Room, I hope that we get the opportunity to play as a part of the evening again in the future. If you are in Leederville on a Thursday night or have nothing planned I would recommend getting along and supporting some of the local music talent that makes up the Perth music scene. It really is alive and well.
