The Record Factory, Glasgow
14th Nov 2015
The Winachi Tribe, formerly known as China White, are Liam Croker on vocals, Antony Egerton (Keys / Programing) Inder Goldfinger (Percussion & Vibes), Richie Rich (Bass), Jamie Fingers Mcgregor (Guitars) & Sam Tushingham (Drums). They exploded on stage, with frontman Liam greeting us, ‘Come on Glasgow, it’s fucking Saturday night…Hello! Here’s the lads here.’ and immediately we had a dance off between two punters on the dance floor. Magic. Bumping into fellow Dodgy giggers up the front both they and I were impressed with the charisma exuding from percussion player Inder Goldfinger and the sheer raw energy in the room.
Their song Plant the Seed was entered into a competition and won allowing them to feature in upcoming documentary film on the Hacienda Do you Own the Dance-floor? Best described as a Funk, hip hop with an acid house vibe outfit with influences such as Funkadelic and sister act Parliament, Massive Attack, Primal Scream and Tom Tom Club.
Having already supported the likes of Primal Scream and Tinie Tempah at Victorious Festival in Portsmouth a couple of months back these guys are enjoying the limelight. A band to keep an eye on, they are in their element when playing live . They support Happy Mondays in Leicester’s O2 on the 22nd Nov. You can catch them in Edinburgh on the 27th Nov at La Belle Angele or in Aberdeen’s Drummonds on the 28th Nov.
