Check it out!
The good folks at the very awesome podcast Mutiny on the Microphone stopped by Radio to catch our Halloween Foo Fighters set, and I guess they dug it:
…Then came my favorite act of the night, Await Rescue as Foo Fighters. Bassist Corey Fyfe was doing things with his instrument that the Foo Fighters seem scared to do. Fyfe stole it for me. I didn’t even realize that bass notes could be played in that order. Plus, I’ve always thought that Dave Grohl should have stuck with what he’s amazing at: drumming. Lead singer Johnny Cutulle proved it by singing songs better than Dave Grohl does. The screaming was controlled; the singing was musical. As an audience member yelled, “You’re being sexy!” and I had to agree. They made some really wise choices when it came to which FF songs they were going to play. And the results were that the crowd was amped up and the band sang electric. They might have started out a little bit off in timing at the very very beginning with All My Life, but that was one brief moment out of several amazing ones. The danger of playing a night of covers is that if your audience is familiar with the band being covered, you are constantly being compared to that original band. But with Await Rescue, this didn’t matter, because they were just as good (dare I say better?) as the FF. My hair stood up on end when they started “Best of You”. They crossed the line from being musicians to performing artists in my view. And I might be biased because Everlong is one of my favorite songs ever…long, but they finished with that song, and I didn’t want it to stop. Everything was perfect.
By no means can we accept all of the overly gracious compliments above, but we appreciate that people enjoyed the set and that we didn't butcher some of our favorite songs!
