gig & EP review, Dec ’19

 

MF, Barney, Stephen, 11 Dec

On the whole, I’ve really enjoyed putting on some DIY gigs this year – it’s been stressful at times (for purely organisational reasons – all the other bands have been lovely)… but very much worth it.  This last one went very well, and here’s a review from Plugged in Brighton to testify:

“…high-grade alt-rock. Matt’s guitar playing was muscular and twisted whilst the rhythm section kept pace and added to a heavy sound that was tough without being obvious.”

So thanks to them – and to Idle Bones and Adam & Elvis for being fucking superb.

On the subject of reviews, here’s one of the EP from Whisperin and Hollerin:

“…And so it is that over the course of 4 songs and 20 minutes, Matt Finucane demonstrates that he’s a singular artistic voice in a sea of sameness, and if 2019 has seen him establish himself, 2020 looks like being the year he takes it to the next level.”

Well, hope so.  This year’s not over yet, of course – couple more gigs to come – and in January we’re back in the studio.  So who knows?  If nothing else, be interesting to see what happens next.
