Y Feedback by Tony Mallett from Y Magazine
3rd July 1991

The Winning Post on Bishopthorpe Road, York, has played host to many a great band over the years and local music fans can be certain that when promoter Chris Lawrence organises a thrash it is virtually guaranteed to be a real humdinger. No gig though, could have been better received by a packed house than the recent Sensational King Bizkit Blues Band bash.

Featuring the legendary Zoot Money on keyboards and occasional vocals, ex-Uriah Heep man Glenn Kendrick on guitar and the meanest sax section to hit this city in years, the ‘Bizkits’ proved themselves to be amongst the hottest rhythm and blues bands on the circuit.

Lead singer Richard Everitt looked every bit the ageing rocker and the veteran vocal chords have certainly sampled their fair share of the rock and roll lifestyle. It all added to the raunchy sound of this exciting band as they pile-drived their way through a classic set.

The evening’s highlights were undoubtedly the Zoot-sung numbers. His first song, Hard Times, reduced the feverish audience to awed silence as the razor-rusty voice threatened to rip the roof off. And a version of Hoochie Coochie Man late on in the set, with Everitt and Money on vocals, defied anybody in the crowd to stay still.

The Sensational King Bizkit Blues Band are set to play the Bonding Warehouse later this month and should not be missed at any cost! Truly awesome………………..!
