Re: last night's gig at Pony: BAM BAM were good as usual; and Los Dominados seemed like fairly generic 1970s garage-rock revivalism, each song with three chords that rev along like a V8 Kingswood. The middle band, The Argyles, were entertaining; more garage revivalism only with a sense of humour.

The frontman went on stage wearing a fur coat, black shirt, white tie and lots of eyeliner, and at one stage carried an ornately carved wooden walking stick.
