Definitely a case of standing room only onboard this bus as Fergus McKay and his band, Nothing Concrete, perform their latest single, Old Black Crow, in the vehicle which has been reappropriated as a theatre. With an all-female tap-dancing brass section and a rip-roaring tale of derring-do as witnessed by a by-standing crow, this is close to uncategorisable and all the better for it.
The Statue Thieves album, Laniakea is now out, but for further evidence of the slinky blues-psych prowess, check out the live in the studio footage below. 12-Page Letter appears on the album, a serpentine crawl through the murky undergrowth.
Fortunately, as well as nods to life, death and all points in-between, blues/psych rock band, The Statue Thieves, have managed to make a mini-masterpiece which requires no thinking caps whatsoever to enjoy, should taking the easy route feel more enticing. Apparently the video was a one-shot piece which plays in reverse. That’s quite enough to get your head around for starters. Check it out below.

Delivering a heartfelt and fantastically executed rendition of the much loved Micheal Jackson classic ‘Man In The Mirror’, Paddy James doesn’t fail to deliver.
Paddy James is a singer-songwriter who takes stories and turns them into carefully constructed Folk/indie inspired simplistic tracks, with new song “Perfectly Flawed” having just been released, 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Paddy James.
Well, if you’re going to write a song to illicit a reaction, this is definitely how you do it. Featuring footage of fascist marches, some hilariously suggestive silhouettes and those all-important lyrics, this is an absolute classic in the making. Hunter’s anti-homophobia blues anthem is clearly going to appall some people, which can only be a good thing – no-one wants to be ignored right? Have a watch and be thoroughly entertained
After watching the video from Norwegian blues-rock tornado, you’ll be running down to your local harmonica shop so you can even attempt to look this cool!

With a variety health benefits and recipe ideas-aplenty, no one can argue with our most humble superfood, the blueberry. Singer-songwriter Lenny Bunn has taken things a step further though and expressed his love for ‘The Wonder of the Blueberry’ with his mouthwatering new video…
Backed with Lenny’s recently recorded cover of the classic ‘Blueberry Hill’ the video features a collage of all things ‘Blueberry’ – beware, this video may induce hungriness, thirstiness or healthiness…

Folding the old school songwriting smarts of Fleetwood Mac into the contemporary edge of the Raconteurs, London based four piece Cherry White are an immediately impressive proposition. Their in your face indie-blues sound is highlighted by great hooks and high energy, blending genres in a way that sets them apart from more pigeonholed bands.
Currently building a buzz with their live shows in and around London, Cherry White have now taken to the studio to record a brand new EP, ‘Staring at the Sun’. Inspired by life in London during this austerity era, surrounded by the greed of the wealthy, the tracks circle around an aspiration to reach higher and achieve their goals in the music industry and beyond.
Engineered at Bark Studios by the excellent Brian O’Shaughnessy (Primal Scream, The Firm, My Bloody Valentine), the EP does a fantastic job of capturing the frenetic energy of a band who thrive on a live environment.
And with the single and EP on the way, Cherry White will be working harder than ever to make sure that reputation continues to grow into the music career they deserve.
