Beats: Job For A Cowboy live review (Norwich Waterfront)

On 17th September, if you remember, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jonny Davy from Job For A Cowboy.

Afterwards, I thought it would be rude to not go and see them live. They were supporting Dying Fetus, along with Revocation and Cerebral Bore.

I first saw Job For A Cowboy live in 2007 I think. They were supporting Megadeth at the UEA in Norwich which is a fucking big score for quite a young band. In that case, they had a massive stage to work with and managed to pull it off brilliantly.

I was quite excited to see them again, to be honest. Just to see how their live performance has progressed over 5 years.

I'll start off by saying, they were playing in The Studio at The Waterfront which is pretty small. The stage is absolutely tiny. It was my first ever gig up there; I'd only previously been there for Wraith club nights before, all other gigs I've seen at The Waterfront had been in the main Auditorium.

Job For A Cowboy managed to work with a small stage incredibly well. Jonny has so much charisma and really knows how to get the crowd going.

They played 7 songs which were an amalgamation of everything in their discography. Starting with Entombment of a Machine couldn't have made me happier. They managed to jump right in with what's probably their most brutal song before showcasing how much they've progressed since the very beginning.

All in all, it was a bloody brilliant show. They managed to pull off the small stage as well as they could a big one and as a fan I couldn't be more proud of how far they've come. It was just a shame they only had 7 songs!

Full setlist below:
  1. Entombment of a Machine / Embedded
  2. Imperium Wolves
  3. Unfurling a Darkened Gospel
  4. Regurgitated Disinformation
  5. Children of Deceit
  6. Knee Deep
  7. Constitutional Masturbation
