Australia’s Hunters & Collectors were brash rabble-rousers at the nearly sold-out RPM Thursday night.
The head jeer-leader was singer-guitarist Mark Seymour, who led the group through a series of rough and tumble rock songs that combined southern boogie blues with punk posturing.
To add, and sometimes subtract, from the impact the band included a three-member horn section, which provided cabaret style r&b decorations.
But Seymour and company presented the best with the least when they played material from last year’s Human Frailty album and this years EP Living Daylight.
The fancier stuff over-dramatized Seymour’s already dramatic musical statements.
