LATEST LIVE REVIEW: Electrobuddha at Pivo Glasgow 2nd March 2014
It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to embrace Electrobudda's live performance again as it had been a year since we had caught up with them in a live venue situation. We joined forces with them in early 2013 to photograph a live studio recording for their album “Evolution” We noticed their bass player, Silja had been replaced, but apart from that solo transition, the band have been united on moving progressively forward with various radio play, playing gigs in and around the city, and receiving supportive complimentary reviews to boost their developments. To have them play a New Hellfire Showcase gave me a great opportunity to catch up with them and I thoroughly enjoyed their eclectic concoction that resonates as a distinctive sound. With diverse upbeat, quirky elements embedded within their lyrical content and instrumentation, their sound is hugely infectious and very uplifting to embrace. With a good-natured approach to their style and a clear precise picture being painted lyrically Electrobudda's songs are endearing, upbeat and fun.

Electrobuddha - born of Stockholm, Sweden 2003 and now playing the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland in 2014. It is hard to put a label on the band in terms of who they sound like, but perhaps you can hear Primal Scream, The Stones and Kula Shaker in there. One Glasgow newspaper described Mark's first home-made album as ?The Rolling Stones meets The Beta band with Hendrix on decks!?
Electrobuddha as a live band began life around March 2012. Mark was waiting until he had enough well honed tunes to take into the live arena. Mark met drummer Graeme Proctor through a mutual friend, and he was happy to give the Electrobuddha thing a go. So with Mark on rhythm guitar and vocals and Graeme on drums, all that was needed now was a lead guitarist. Chris Cunningham came along and slotted into the set up. Additionally, we now have new bassist Graham Brooker.
After recording their debut album called 'Evolution' the band received three separate airplays on leading Scottish disc jockey - Jim Gellatly's radio show. They are racking up gigs averaging one or two per month in their local city of Glasgow and always go down warmly at gigs. Punters have been enthusiastic and Electrobuddha are very optimistic about the future and are hoping to secure more gigs. Enjoy the sounds and thanks for reading and listening, but most of all, download, and come along to our gigs. You can now buy our material on Soundcloud at top of this page.
