Being a streaming convert I hardly ever buy CD’s these days. However with the issue of the latest It Bites Live ‘box set’ I couldn’t resist
It Bites are one of my favourite bands of all time but never really achieved the credit, success and accolades they deserved (sadly an all too common story).
They are the epitome of a modern rock band to me. Their songs are catchy and have a pop sensibility but they were also innovative, brave and uncompromising.
They incorporated the best elements of prog music with had finesse but it was never gratuitous. They pushed the boundaries but still wrote great songs.
I’m looking forward to listening to these three shows.
