The Mccooleys

There is a shimmering sunshine that illuminates the room on hitting play as The Mccooleys resurrect British rock of the likes of The Kinks delivering it a swift boot into the 2010’s and although there is not much to hear at this stage, what there is, is a joy into which to wrap the ears.


The percussion acts as a carborundum to give the guitar a sharpened blade of incision which slices through the air as the bass is allowed to wallow in off-beat providing The Mccooleys with incredible space to afford the vocal to explore the thematics. The trio have built a loyal local live following and with some luck there are words of a new EP for us that don’t live locally to find more of their music – Empty blue skies!.

For those travelling to Mallorca over the summer – I do advise having a look at the local gig listings and if you find The Mccooleys playing, eschew the Clubs with the over-priced drinks and have a fun night out with real musicians.

The Living Statues

Crank up the volume and let the flourishes spin unfettered around the room as The Living Statues deliver their unpretentious and straight-up rock for tapping feet. There is a freedom and pure joie de vivre when a band plays this style of music as it should be and these three have hit the nail on the head. I can’t help but smile and dance as I listen – typing is a tad more problematic.

Wrapping up the tracks inside no-time at all The Living Statues provide the listener with finely constructed and played pieces of music sans frippery and what more could anyone ask? – Oh I know – another track please. With a début five track EP – Knockin’ – which came out earlier this year, my only criticism is – more music please.

I could write more, but I would sooner be dancing, as I am sure you would too, so here are two tracks….

In advance a single has appeared – Not Afraid – taken from the album. The music is quietly political, reflecting on a world become ever more nervous of its own shadow. Although not hammering home the message in a flurry of diatribe, Not Afraid is no-less powerful for it.
