Help the cap'n
So tell me, what should I think of the band Tilly & The Wall? I nearly went to see them when they came here recently; I decide against it because seeing a band just because they have a 30 Years War general in their name and attractive (if garishly dressed) young ladies on their poster is not always a good idea. But then I read about them in local music magazine The State. The detail I was most struck by was that instead of having a drummer, they handle percussion by tap-dancing on stage. This must surely make them either the greatest live band ever, or a band so astonishingly bad that the freakshow aspect alone would justify the price of admission. So tell me, readers, what did I miss?
