GIG REVIEW – Spam Javelin, Red Or Dead, Velvet @ The Skerries, Bangor

By |January 20th, 2018|0 Comments


A handy collection of three fine representatives of the burgeoning local original music scene, all gathered in the cheap and ever cheerful Skerries?  Yes, that will do, even for a flying visit from me.  It was good to see a lot of other band members out to support too, not something that always happens with folks caught up in their own bubbles.  I had sent some drunks to reserve me a seat up front so had a good view of proceedings.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 87 – with Velvet in Session

By |December 4th, 2017|0 Comments

I was so tired, and did ask myself this afternoon why do I put my poor body and soul through the pain of late nights and early mornings. Velvet answered the question and put any doubts to sleep. What a superb session! And when you consider Aimee was so full of cold it was touch ‘n’ go whether they’d be able to play; this makes this all the more special.
Check out the band’s debut EP ‘Fire’ out now on CEG Records and listen to their session and the entire show below.
