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 “…playing 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.
