Yes, its Whitby Now fundraiser time again next Tuesday. Three fantastic beat combos are being offered up for your delectation this time. So to whet your appetite, here's what's on the menu, starting with a dish that surely falls foul of the World Wildlife Trust guidelines?
As cocky as a peacock coming out of Boots' with his first condom. Its music you can bounce up and down to whilst wearing a ludicrously coloured shirt and wraparound shades, even during the thickest sea fret since Captain Cook was a bairn. And yet, incongruously, they're still officially the housewives' choice.
Panda Lasagne: Minced Giant Panda meat between layers of Italian pasta. Currently available at The Moon and Sixpence. Do you want that with fries or spicy potato wedges?
THE SCARLETT ALLIANCE
There's an in depth expose of this duo further down this page, so if you peruse that you should be able to work out where they're coming from. Lets just say if Jack White had been born in Ugglebarnby instead of Detroit, this is what he might have sounded like.
First ever gig with drummer Sam. Minimal, raw and heartfelt Esk delta blues of the highest order. The highest order!
3 FOOT NINJA
One of the professional bands at the last Whitby Now. They kicked in with the first song immediately their introduction was over. The rest thought it was a cue to begin tuning up.
To hear them, click on the link in the POPWATCH links section. Wait a minute! There is no link! Maybe they never replied to my message? Maybe they don't like parochial local online fanzines? Maybe I'm too old, and they're so young? There are so many maybes and so few definites in life, aren't there? Discuss.
