I received a short notice phone call to support Virgil & The Accelerators at Mainsforth last Saturday. I supported them last time they were there so didn’t expect to get the call, but I’m glad that I did. The small but enthusiastic crowd were treated to a tour-de-force by Virgil, Gabriel and Jack. I’ve seen them 5 times now, and this was their best gig yet. With great songs from their recent CD The Radium, as well as several great new songs which show they aren’t standing still, the guys were on fire! For me, Silver Giver was especially stunning, and several of the songs also featured this delicious Les Paul, which Virgil’s dad gave him when he was 14. It sounded immense! Watch out for these guys – if they play a gig near you, go see them!
