Bristol (Locarno Ballroom) : 9 février 1967‘An Experience In Sound’
by Nicholas Williams
“Jimi Hendrix Experience went to the New Bristol Entertainments Centre [Locarno Ballroom] last night and left it reeling with the sound of his way-out guitar.
Backed by a two-man group he bombarded his audience with an unbelievable wall of sound, which he somehow coaxed from his electric guitar. He played it in the usual way. He played it under his arm, over his shoulder and between his legs. He scraped it on the stage floor and over the amplifiers – he even plucked the strings with his teeth.Something had to snap - and it did. He broke a string at the end of the show. But that’s nothing unusual. “I buy several sets a week” said Hendrix.
He drove his way through Dylan’s ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, ‘Wild Thing’
and ‘Hey Joe’
