Reviewer Ged Babey said that to him it could be the way forward for music — “small-scale, word of mouth, intimate and precious — outside of the commercial marketplace and established infrastructure”.

It was a charity performance by The Jesus Bolt, who are Hazel Winter (formerly of the Blue Aeroplanes) and Gerard Starkie (formerly of Witness) from Bristol.

They describe their music as indie rock blues and have apparently been compared to "PJ Harvey (with a sense of humour) jamming with Richard Ashcroft (without the ego)".

The pair were raising funds towards Centrepoint, St Mungos, and the Society of St James.

The full review is on the Louder then War website.
