The Felons tonight at Mohans

I'd recommend The Felons on tonight at Mohans with The Fugitive - and its totally free.

Saw The Felons the other week in Darlo and was really impressed by their in your face indie bluesy full on performance. Here's what I wrote about them in the Gazette.

THE FELONS play bluesy rock and play it right in your face. The singer barks and croons his Jim Morrison inspired vocals to the moon or stumbling from person to person through the crowd. He's a big fella so when he sings you listen, right?

Full on, tight and inspired, It's Only Natural is the cry and the whole front row sing along in tandem; the guitars and drums blast away for the riff of The Journeyman - the singer has now stripped to the waist, he's fully committed ... anything but journeymen. Catch The Felons, they're in a hurry.

Seeing as the evening is approaching - another good alternative - the fantastic Felons live at Mohans - old Scruffy's and its totally free.

Don't forget Reverend and The Makers at the Empire. Blinding band.

You'd recommend them then?

Yes Rob they're fantastic. I've seen them 4 times at the Ku Bar and they never disappoint. Heavyweight Champion Of The World is getting a lot of airplay on Radio 1 at the moment. It sounds better than the demo, which took some beating.

Yes I've heard that song a few times hadn't realised who it was. Will have to see if I can last the pace - Speedway - Razorbeat - The Empire?

Gawd I sound like an old fogey.

My apologies to The Furtive from Hartlepool for putting the wrong name on here. Playing tonight at Mohans.

So is this Reverend and The Makers gig definitely on then?

I thought they were at the Ku Bar tomorrow night??

You are right of course.

Thanks for that tip off.

The Felons are good mates of mine and are really going places. Good chance of them getting signed before the year is out too.
I'm going to see em in Manchester on Saturday.
Even if you go and don't like the music, you will find yourself watching the frontman - he is non stop, usually ends up half naked on the floor or throwing himself off high ledges !
