Pseudo Echo

The Gov

24 Aug 2012

Pseudo Echo returned to The Gov but while it has only been four months since their last show plenty has changed.  Back in early May the new line up with Brian Canham returning but now joined by Ben Grayson, Darren Danielson and Simon Rayner was announced.  The current tour sees Pseudo Echo back with two new songs in addition to the well known favourites in Suddenly Silent and Fighting The Tide which were given out as a digisingle to attendees on the night.

The evening started out with Squeaker once again in support and as in April they put on an impressive set despite their bass player recovering from recent surgery and the Adelaide based band currently have a CD and single available.   Details can be found at their website of Squeaker website .

After a short break Pseudo Echo hit stage stage with a fantastic version of Stranger in Me from their first album Autumnal Park followed by In Their Time and Dancing Until Midnight.  The crowd really started to get involved and sing along for the ever popular Don't Go from Love an Adventure leading into the first of the new songs Fighting The Tide which despite the years in between nails the Pseudo Echo sound of the 80s.  Then it was back to the first album for His Eyes then one of their biggest hits in A Beat for You leading into Walkaway.  Fan favourite I Will be You was next on the playlist before Lesson in Love then another of the big hits in Living in A Dream.  Back to the haunting synth sounds of the early 80s were next with Fast Cars and Destination Unknown before the big build up towards the end of the night.

Pseudo Echo's very first single and big hit Listening was next leading into the second of the new songs on the night Suddenly Silent (which if anyone didn't know it was new had the sound of coming straight off that first or second album) with a rollicking version of Funkytown to finish the set.  After a very brief break the band returned for yet another big hit in second album title track Love an Adventure for the encore in a performance like all great shows just seemed to end too soon.

There are whispers that Pseudo Echo will return at one of the festivals early next year in Adelaide but in the meantime they will continue the current tour in the eastern states promoting the new line up and new songs hopefully leading to a new album in the future.  It was also great for fans to have a chance at meet and greets with the band members after the show and despite the fact they must have been exhausted all were very welcoming to anyone wanting a chat, photos with them or posters signed.  If you get the chance to see Pseudo Echo live in concert you are certain to have a great night out.  Thank you to Pseudo Echo Fan Page Official facebook page and Brian Canham for permission to take the photos accompanying this review below.
