 This week,  everybody seemed to be playing new music beginning Dec. 15 at the Slice with Lustre Creame,  Smokestack Jacks   and Lustre Creame’s Aaron Trozzo. Photo by Richard AmeryBig Jim and the Twins.

 Smokestacks Jacks played a short but sweet set plagued by broken strings and guitar straps, but filled in the dead space with plenty of drum solos in a set which cooked, featuring plenty of new songs.

 They played several new songs then crowd favourites including “Whiskey” and “Fat Ass” which had a cluster of people dancing in front of the stage.

 Big Jim and the Twins, or John Greenshields backed by Lustre Creame’s rhythm section of Jeffrey Orriss on bass and drummer Chris Lipinski took a turn for the psychedelic.

 Greenshields gave his wah wah pedal a workout in an upbeat set of stoner ’70s style blues  rock. Orris sang a really cool song with a wild, funky basSmokestack Jacks playing some new songs. Photo by Richard Amery s line.

 They wound down their set with a psychedelic version of “Ain‘t No Sunshine.”

 As they usually do, Lustre Creame played  a strong set of progressive  rock fuelled by plenty of intricate bass riffs and Aaron Trozzo, dressed as Wayne from Wayne’s World, playing his big double necked Ibanez.

 They also played several brand new songs as well as crowd favourites like “Sex Piss.”
