The Temperance Movement & Ulysses, Moles Club, Bath, 8th July 2013

After living on Bath for 2 years, and living round the corner for 4 months, I finally saw a gig at the legendary Moles Club in Bath. There was no doubt it was going to be a scorcher of a gig (and that's before we even mention the weather), The Temperance Movement have sold out pretty much every show on their last two tours, and it was a treat to witness a band ready to go stratospheric in such an intimate venue.  

After an acoustic set from Samuel Taylor,  Bath's own Ulysses (previously seen with Rival Sons, and The Graveltones),  got the crowd whipped up into even sweatier shape with their impressive blend of psychedelia, glam rock and some cowbell thrown in for good measure. 

The Temperance Movement swaggered on stage with frontman and fellow Scot, Phil leading the band though a heady mix of raucous blues tinged foot stomping songs and sublime acoustic numbers, with stunning harmonies and at one point, no a microphone. 

With their debut album to be released on the 16th September, The Temperance Movement play Planet Rock's Steelhouse Festival at the end of July. See ye doon the front!
