Suki's Wish

Review: This 4-piece band has Henry Jenkins (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Charlie Ridler (bass Guitar, Vocals), Tom White (Drums and percussion) and Mike Spillane (electric & lead Guitar). They play mostly their own songs with a few covers. I was just starting to enjoy it, although the volume (at the Robin Hood, Guildford) was set for a venue twice the size, when one of the band thought it was a good idea to stick in a version of Michael Jackson's "Billy Jean" that had been shot with a tranquilliser. Apart from that it was a good set and the atmosphere was helped by the collection of the band's WAGs in the front row.
