A muse bouche
No idea if this is a real or spoof thread, so I’ll assume it’s serious and nominate MAIDEN SCOTLAND. Genuinely incredible golden-era Iron Maiden covers, with singing and musicianship capable of scaling and conquering those heady heights. No, I’m not a member nor an affiliate, but really, they’re more than worth the £7 or so if you’re in the area.
I would have to say the best of the cover bands
Deadly serious pal
V. Pleased to hear maiden scotland are good
Probably Stiff Bizkit, a Limp Bizkit tribute who were gloriously knuckleheaded but felt more like they were in on the joke than the real thing do.
AC/CZ, the Czech AC/DC tribute band. Great bunch of lads, all songs started with a long, passionate intro that I couldn’t understand (being in Czech), followed by shouting the name of the song. The crowd were all chanting “Ang-goos, Ang-goos” which was great as well.
(Honourable mention for my brother’s mate’s Smiths tribute, Salford Lads Club - the tunes without the racism and dickheadery).
The Shitty Beatles
I saw a los del rio tribute a few weeks ago that i thought were the real deal, so them.
