First Assault

Im glad I have a Twitter account because without it I wouldnt have heard this band, and they're really worth a listen. Their sound is kind of 'Taking Back Sunday' meets abit of 'DCFC' and 'Reggie and The Full Effect'

Theyre not the most polished band out there, but that is in no way a bad thing. It is that similar rawness that made Reggie And The Full Effect so good to listen to!

The tracks I really like are 'When We Colide' 'Friday 13th' 'Old Times' and 'You and I' All really good and show signs of a band with potential.

Hopefully we will continue to hear more from them in the future.

Get Loud In Libraries!

Marina and the Diamonds

I came across GLIL today whilst on the internet looking for bands to see. Rather than a dingy club, a tin-box-arena or an over priced concert hall; the venue is a public library.

The idea is "-designed to give people, especially young people who love music, a damn good time in a library" and "Using great fresh modern rock and pop in an innovative, natural location as the key, it offers opportunities to kids from 5 to 65 to check out bands at close quarters in a book clad feelgood venue before they hit the proverbial big time."

I like it. Hopefully Ill get some tickets to a show and let you know how it went.

PATTERNS: 'Pure Shores' Cover

Not too long ago I posted some of my favourite covers

At that point I hadn't heard Patterns cover of 'Pure Shores' by 90's/00's girl group All Saints. It would be wrong of me not to share this with you; so here it is in all its purity.
