So tonight’s gig is of local persuasion, The Winachi Tribe are headlining the final night of [WAM] Festival at The Auction Rooms.
Straight from the Ashes of another band ‘China White’ and Ian Brown’s backing band, are percussionist Inder Goldfinger, joining up with singer /lyricist Liam Croker and Antony Egerton on Keys & programming, they pride themselves on being an Electronic Funk Soul act.
This band have been on the gigging circuit for years recently making waves in Hollywood USA, followers here tonight carry their shaker sticks everywhere I’ve never seen anything that in all the years I’ve been gigging .
Support is from raucous local band Filthy Tricks they are straight from the school of ‘Primal Scream’ and ‘The Stones’ their lead singer is thinner than me and looks vaguely like the ‘ Black Crowes’ frontman.
Beginning with upbeat ‘Sex Drugs and Poetry’ and the cool lingering swagger of ‘Starfighter’ it has the masses raising a pint and occasionally spilling it to the infectious lyrics. Hit song ‘Transition’ sits nicely in the hour long set the crowd belting out the words alongside Liam.
Ending on a three song Encore, Warrington are onto a winner here having previously supported Happy Mondays on tour they’re the clear favourite to close [WAM] Festival 2019. Save the best for last Warrington, you’re a star!
Encore: Our Dylan, Yeah Fool.
