Bristol 24/7

The White Buffalo isn’t just Smith though, he’s aided and abetted in the studio and on stage by Matt “The Machine” Lynott on drums and Christopher Hoffee on bass – one of the tightest rhythm sections treading the boards.The stage set up was functional and sparse: Lynott’s kit located front and stage right, Hoffee’s bass rig and mic front and stage left, leaving centre stage for Smith. There were no flash moves, no grandstanding, simply a shit hot band kicking the packed Academy’s collective ass. Lynott battered his kit precisely throughout, gurning and grinning, bellowing along with the lyrics yet displaying finesse and delicacy on the ballads.
