Live Review: G.U. Medicine @ The Parish, Huddersfield, 23/03/2012

So that’s your lot. Any of you ever hoping to catch G.U. Medicine live again, should you not have been in attendance here, have more than likely missed the boat. G.U Medicine signed off in style, delivering a typically raucous set to a packed out crowd in Huddersfield, rallying through a set comprising of their best material from over the years. Songs like ‘Needles and Pins’ and ‘Alcoholocaust’ hit the mark just like they always did and will always do, and damn you can headbang like always to ‘Dirty Little Girl’. Original guitarist/vocalist Lee Storrar rejoined the band to sing ‘Lords of Oblivion’ and Mr. Shiraz vocalist Mikey Baird even got up at one point to sing ‘The Right Time’ with the band. It was a party atmosphere that embodied what the band were all about – sleaze, danger, booze, and all out rock action. The cans of Carling dotted around the stage should have hinted at that alone, if not the band’s association with Jagermeister which has been prevalent over the last couple of years. Now the UK is one more quality rock band short. We probably can’t hold out much hope for a G.U. reunion, at least not in this vein, but this was a fitting finale nonetheless.
