Blatant Self-Promotion: Gov’t Mule Live Review on Exclaim.ca
Gov't Mule Live in Toronto by Albert Mansour
While Hellbound.ca is definitely my main focus these days, every now and then I still write for other places when asked. One band that I have covered for Exclaim! on a number of occasions that will appeal to some metal fans despite their non-metalness is the US based heavy blues rock quartet Gov’t Mule. The last time I wrote about them was about seven years ago, but when I got a last minute offer to cover their recent Toronto performance last week for Exclaim!, I rang up Albert Mansour to see if he was interested in checking it out. We ended up with great seats in the third row and the band played a decent enough show, although to be honest the second half wasn’t as good as the first.
If anyone would like to read the review, here is a link to it.
“After walking out and having Lemmy introduce them with that oh so familiar line of “We are Motorhead and we play rock and roll” the band was off, starting the show with “We Are Motorhead” and ready to blow our brains out.”
