The Peacock at Gluttony, Sat 17 Mar.
[MUSIC/ROCK – SA]
With a blockbuster start, Koral & The Goodbye Horses had our attention from the get go. Young, energetic and on point, we were suddenly at a reincarnation of a Fleetwood Mac concert. Immediately the audience are invited down the front to dance, because ‘we are all about that sh*t!’ So we were up in no time, dancing to all the ‘bangers’ like Go Your Own Way and Don’t Stop.
Who do we love – Christine or Stevie? With a fair selection from both, we were treated to all the faves – including Dreams, Chains, Sweet Wonderful You and a gorgeous version of Stevie Nicks’ Landslide, famously covered by The Dixie Chicks. Fleetwood Mac really kicked off when Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined Christine, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood; they swiftly came to define the new sound of the band.
Of course, Rhiannon was featured, the story of an old Welsh witch, with the unforgettable lyrics ‘Dreams unwind, love’s a state of mind’ that just hang in the air. Koral is great up front, and with pizzazz she fills us in on her love of Mac, and some insights into this great band of the ‘70s. Magical.
