Blues trio Muddy What?
presented his new album "Spider Legs" at a sold-out performance in Munich's Werksviertel.
Our concert review:
So let's talk about courage.
I have no idea whether the siblings Ina and Fabian Spang as well as Michi Lang are courageous people in private - on stage, as a blues trio Muddy What?, they are.
Otherwise they would hardly have brought "Jumpin' Jack Flash" as the third title of the evening at their rightly acclaimed concert on Saturday (February 4, 2023) in Munich's Werksviertel.
What's more, they played the Stones' smash hit, first released in 1968, in a wonderfully delayed version.
So they didn't take the safe route, didn't feed the audience to their full with the raging classic, but interpreted the number in their own way, uncovered its leitmotif, made it dreamy - and thus invited it to be listened to again.
just released the album Spider Legs
A few weeks ago, the Munich trio presented their new, varied album "Spider Legs".
At the performance now in Eddy's Rock Club (sold out - what else?) the band also shows their enormous live qualities.
That the house technology still has problems with the sound mix at the beginning and above all the low tones sometimes rattle harshly: yes, mei!
It doesn't affect the mood on stage or in the audience.
in Munich: The home game is sold out
Singer and rhythm guitarist Fabian Spang is a wonderful storyteller who can use his voice in many different ways - a quality that is a real asset in the blues.
Michi Lang is something like Mr. Serenity on the drums, whose playing is nevertheless (or precisely because of its calmness) characterized by a surprisingly large variety of variations for the genre.
The two men are building a very solid foundation - the ideal springboard for the virtuoso but never narcissistic solos of lead guitarist Ina Spang, who also brings a completely new color to this traditional music on the mandolin.
This is how the three presently interpret the genre without ever being academic or mumbling about its roots.
