Tim Rogers & the Temperance Union
Tim Rogers sings and

like a drunken god.
The HiFi Bar & Ballroom celebrated their 10th Birthday with a party last Friday night, and it was a very strange affair. I’m not even going to write about the first band [they were too awful to even deserve a mention]. Henry Wagons played to a crowd who were mostly seated on the floor, aside from some dancing drunkards who wished to be the centre of attention [Henry soon put them in their place]. While Even were playing, a woman behind me asked if we were watching Tim Rogers. She was confused, because he looked different to what she remembered. I’m not sure if Ash Naylor should take that as an insult or a compliment. Tim & co were still playing when I left at 1am. I was exhausted, and HiFi shows don’t normally go that late. They played a mixture of covers and originals; their version of David Bowie’s “Fame” was a highlight.
