reckless love

I have to be honest with you that over the last twelve months I've been listening to more and more Scandinavian bands that I have in my life before - and this goes for black and death Metal bands right through to well, hard rock bands like Reckless Love.

When the chance to see Reckless Love live presented itself, well, I just couldn't say "No" - and I'm very glad that I didn't.

A soaking Thursday night in Glasgow can be quite depressing to be honest, but inside The Cathouse it was a different matter entirely, as the venue began to fill up with finely coiffured hair, elaborately decorated cowboy boots and the numerous chains and scarves hanging from belts - and that was only the male members of the audience! With tracks by AC/DC, Zeppelin and Van Halen playing over the PA, the tension was tangible.

As 'The Boys Are Back In Town' by Thin Lizzy blasted out, the band walked on stage to a heroes welcome and without anything said between band and audience they dived head first into the high energy number, 'So Happy I Could Die'.

Vocalist Olli Herman's vocals are momentarily lost in the mix but the sound man is on the job quickly enough that the swaying mass of fans down the front didn't even notice. 'Bad Lovin' has Herman getting up close and personal with the front row fans, but with no moveable lights onstage if he strays too far he ends up in darkness.

By the time 'Born To Break Your Heart' comes round, the fists are well and truly raised in the air and bass player Jalle Verne finally seems to had settled into the groove and starts to smile and enjoy the gig a bit more. The band's rendition of 'Beautiful Bomb' is just electric and by this point in the set, the audience don't need any encouragement to clap along - in fact, once the song ends the crowd just keep going absolutely crazy!

As Herman notes, this is only the third show of the UK tour and the Glasgow audience are by far and away "the loudest mother fuckers yet!"

The band just know how to work the eager audience and guitarist Pepe delivers an exceptional solo during 'Edge Of Our Dreams', but it looks like he puts no effort into it all - which is some feat in itself. 'Wild Child', a song played the first time the band played this venue back in 2010 goes down a storm and Herman takes the opportunity to press the flesh with faithful down the front once more.

'I Love Heavy Metal' has drummer Hessu Maxx laying down a solid beat as he grins from ear to ear before Verne comes over for an impromptu chat before the band powers onwards through 'Sex, Drugs And Reckless Love' and 'Night On Fire', the latter of which is immense.

Watching the band, you have to wonder why they are not playing somewhere bigger, but the truth of the matter is that this band are thrive on the close contact between band and fans from the front row to the people standing at the back.

Herman mentions several times during the evening about how much they love playing the UK - and especially Glasgow and it seems from the reception tonight that Glasgow's rock fans have a soft spot for Reckless Love and there's no doubt that the two will meet again sometime - and I don't think it'll be too long before the band return, and I for will be there for sure.
