THE BYKER GROVE FAN CLUB
Somehow I missed these guys, and only discovered them thanks to their excellent, gritty and compelling performance at Komedia, Bath on 27th March. The event put on by Hilltop Sounds (check them out!) was incredibly well done, and it really felt like I was there in person. Also performing was the brilliant Mawpit and Novatines.
The Byker Grove Fan Club describe themselves as Post Macho Noise Pop, and are not afraid to raise any eyebrows with their music. I was frankly blown away by the conviction of their performance, accompanied by gruelling bass tones, wonderfully intense guitars and sharp drums.
The furious trio currently have two singles out for your enjoyment. "Cake Shop" released last year and latest release "King of Scots" are, as they quite rightly describe themselves, sardonic and angular.
Their show at Komedia was a real treat and I can't wait to see them live in person. Check them out below.
