Last Thursday I went to Pontypridd’s Muni to see aging rock legends Michael Schenker Group. Now, on the whole I’m not a great fan of the old heavy metal scene, but having heard a couple of MSG and UFO albums back in the ‘80s, I thought I’d give it a go.
Good decision. They were supported by local bands Your Local Hero (very young, raw, OK) and Skin (been around, acoustic set, terrific). There were a few songs even I recognised, such as Doctor, Doctor and Rock Bottom, but on the whole it was just great to enjoy some good music from a famous band so close to home.
Good work, Muni. They say more gigs like this are planned; I hope so.
