Another great panda live gig review – May 2013

Second to take the stage was Big Fat Panda, a band larger than life itself and a band who I’ve never had the pleasure of hearing until this day. I was not disappointed! The crowd where bouncing, the ska was a’skain and the DM’s where stomping… Particularly when the band cleverly covered “These Boots” changing the lyrics ever so slightly to be deemed appropriate for DM wearers and skinheads to enjoy. This 6 piece Edinburgh based ska band played a strong, energetic and slightly sweaty set to a strong, energetic and slightly sweaty crowd. A particular favourite of mine was a cover of Al Wilson’s “The Snake” which the band played in a ska style, making it their own, and had me looking as strange as any white man looks while jiving. I’d like to thank the band for playing that track, and living up to the legend that I had fore-heard.
