General Fiasco

I got to review a great up and coming Northern Irish indie-rock band this week; General Fiasco. This was a supporting slot for Kids in Glass Houses but the crowd were clearly behind this band and it was a blistering set. I first heard of them via Gary Lightbody’s blog on the Snow Patrol website (which I read every week I might add, he’s a bit of a hero of mine!) and they are going from strength to strength. Excerpt from review below:

The tone of Owen Strathern’s voice defies his twenty two years and has a rich, expansive quality about it which exudes the passion he so clearly feels for his craft. Speaking earlier this year about touring, the lead singer stated that “โ€ฆplaying support gigs to people who don’t know your music is not easy. Trying to win over fans without a record to promote is not easy. You have to fight for people’s attention, but I think we have done that.” It would appear that that particular fight had been won, if the reception tonight was any indication of victory.
