sparrowhawksSparrowhawks hail from that Welsh wannabe city called Chester and release their third EP ‘Cool your Blood Down’ on Wrexham’s fine Drum With Our Hands label.

This EP, like the band are an acquired taste, and once you’ve got your head around that fact, you actually do acquire the taste.
It’s not going to reach out and touch faith, you’re not going to be humming their tunes after one listen.

Words cannot describe my love for Wobbly Hearts  (pic below) and, like Gintis they are forever getting their name in the small print on the poster when they should really be in the hearts and minds of the entire population. I guess it’s down to themselves really, personal circumstances, uni, kids, work… and yet if they had proper representation they have the songs and charm to be up there with all those tossers picking up Brit Awards.

Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun, with support from Danny Gruff & The Peacemakers, Sparrowhawks

Okay, so I’d not really heard much from these guys before aside from one of their songs, “Home / Hospitals” but the name alone was enough to attract me to this gig! Also, as incredible as their name is, I’m just referring to them as JL&TSS from here on in.

So the day I was dreading had arrived. The last live music event at Brookers Rock Bar in Hoole, Chester. Not just that though, it was the last day the venue was to trade. Once those doors closed that was it….forever!

The fact I had 12 bands playing throughout the day meant there was no time to look on the negatives of the day. I was going to be busy….very busy!

As doors opened we already had people waiting to come into the venue. More I think for the nostalgia of it being the venue’s final day, but to behonest as long as there were people in early on watching the bands things were all good.
