Live Review: Tim Rogers & The Twin Set, The Great Club Marrickville, 17.11.22

Tim Rogers and The Twin Set

Rounding out a full week of seven gigs in a row, Tim Rogers with his band The Twin Set, delighted a full room at The Great Club Marrickville on Thursday night.

A punishing schedule of gigs for the front man between his duties with You Am I, The Hard Ons and solo pursuits including his radio gig with Double J, unfortunately meant Tim was battling through with a throat infection. Countless apologies were made throughout the night for his vocal issues, however he needn’t have been concerned. Whatever he may have lacked in range or at times vocal strength, he certainly made up for with passion and entertained the appreciative crowd with anecdotes and a couple of notable interactions with audience members that…ahem, stood out to Tim.

The Twin Set comprised original members Tim Rogers and Jen Anderson (violin and mandolin), as well as Jeff Consi (drums) and Rich Brad (double bass) with You Am I compatriot Davey Lane (guitar). The group had a wonderful camaraderie as they performed songs from their debut album What Rhymes With Cars and Girls, sparking a much appreciated return 23 years after its release as well as tunes from new album Tines of Stars Unfurled due for release in February. Fans were left hoping this perhaps signals the return of The Twin Set and more shows on the horizon.

Throat issues seemed to be the theme for the evening – support act Bud Rokesky informed the audience that “this is not my usual voice”. He was suffering from laryngitis and also apologised for having to talk his way through a lot of the set. Again, he need not have been too concerned, the room was filled with a sympathetic lot and his set was very much appreciated. Bud has a new album due out in February.
