Officer Trip revist ’70s rock

E-mail Print PDF

 Dead Army rocked the Slice again, Saturday Aug. 10.
 But I arrived just in time to miss the Cayley, but be impressed by Vancouver power trio Officer Trip.
 They have been  following in the footsteps the ’70s rock revivalists like Monster Truck.

 So there were Officer Trip playing the Slice, Aug.10. Photo by Richard Ameryplenty of big riffs, grooves and blues flavoured solos like bands of the likes of Foghat, Mountain and Grand Funk Railroad made popular back in the day.

 There wasn’t as big a crowd as I expected, so the trio took the opportunity to try out a lot of new songs, which the audience seemed to enjoy.

In addition to big ’70s rock, they also showed more modern influences like the Foo Fighters on a couple of other songs.

Dead Army was next. Frontman Rob Morrison, who lost his voice for last week’s show and let new member Nick Bohle sing lead vocals,  was back on lead vocals for this show.

 As usual, they played their strong set of riff heavy ’90s inspired alternative rock along the lines of Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth with a few ’80s style heavy metal riffs thrown in for good measure.
