I once played in the same bill as a young band who showed great potential like that
Their music was nothing special - generic blues rock - but they played reasonably well enough for me to remark that if they got hold of some good records and absorbed some good influences they could one day be good.
They didn't. They grew up to be The Enemy. It transpired that they only managed to get hold of Oasis and Jam records. I was very wrong.
