I’ve always believed that it is vital to review and support up and coming talent whenever I can. Tonight at The Skerries in Bangor, North Wales I witnessed four solid reasons why I continue to do it. I also took the opportunity at this gig of chatting with Mike & Andy from Crapsons. The filmed interview with be published shortly in it’s entirety.

I was really impressed with The Skerries. A small traditional pub at the bottom of the longest high street in Britain (one mile top to bottom). The back room where the bands perform is large enough to hold a decent crowd and project great sound, but also small enough for the place to fill up quickly.
