You’d think butter wouldn’t melt, watching two befringed young females padding innocuously through the crowd on a schoolnight at The Garage in Islington.
Oh but how wrong can you be. These chicks were in fact The Pearl Harts, a tenacious, rock hungry duo opening the show for Kagoule.
When these girls took the stage you kind of got the feeling they could tie knots in cherry stalks with their tongues.
Two words sum up their performance: fucking outstanding.
The Pearl Harts really are a must-see act, but listener beware. As I watched I remembered something someone once said…
“If you like to see beautiful girls driving fast sports cars breaking joculatory-looking he-men men’s’ spines…buhh”.
