The Creepshow slaughtered the Bovine Sex Club
Hailing from Burlington, Ont., the band is known for their live stage presence and their raw and rugged sound. A mixture of alternative and creative licks, driving bass and drum lines and piercing vocals makes for an amazing live set.
Recently having released their fourth studio album Life After Death, titled as such due to the band’s reformation with new singer Kenda Legaspi. Legaspi has brought a breadth of new life to the group which has rekindled their passion for the music they once loved. And it shows when you see them.
Part of a small stint of Ontario and Quebec shows in support of the new album, the Toronto show was basically the half way mark of the tour, ending on Dec. 13 in Barrie, Ont. Being back at ground zero in Toronto is huge for them, as it is home to the large majority of their fan base from way back when. Now, as founding member Sean McNab puts it, they’re back stronger than ever, so they only hope the fans like the new makeover and remain dedicated listeners.On stage, there are very little words to describe them if you’ve never seen them live before, if you’ve seen a music video or two though, you’d have a slight impression of the energy they produce. They’re also unique in many ways, like how McNab chooses to play a traditional stand-up bass instead of your typical Fender Jazz-esque model electric bass.
It’s amazing to see the life rejuvenated in such a vivacious group, that thought it had seen it’s last of stages under the Creepshow name, yet here they are again in full force, with no end in sight. A large part of which Legaspi is responsible for, for she reawakened the psychobilly beast that they once were.
A band on the brink of defeat has now risen up to the challenge of birthing a new pool of fans while trying to reclaim older fans that have been around since the beginning. And after seeing them perform again, there’s absolutely no doubt that they are indeed here to stay, and their foundations won’t be crumbling any time soon.
