“Flash Harry” – Brosnan February 9, 2017


15874977_1243036269109549_1848441561698494199_o

Do you like your music a little jangly, indie pop and very English? You do? then I suggest that you check out Kingston Upon Hull‘s Brosnan. Their current single is the catchy, bubbly and frankly rather spiffing “Flash Harry”. I have always admired British bands and singers who don’t go down the road of aping an American accent when playing rock ‘n’ roll. Brosnan’s singer Rory Moses is very much in that English accented rock camp with the likes of Paul Weller, the Clash, Pulp, the Libertines, Arctic Monkeys and many others. The rhythm section of Johnny Rodrigues on bass and Jake Haylett gives this three-man combo a great bedrock to their signature sounds. Jake is also the band’s producer. Also a big thank you to Mr Haylett senior for introducing me to the music of this fine northern band.

“Flash Harry” is a fine follow on from last years “Orange Wine” which was the title of their six track EP. The other five songs all showcase a band that really seem to know their stuff. I particularly love “Ceasefire Baby” and “I Don’t Mind”. I have yet to see Brosnan live but I get the feeling from listening to their stuff on Soundcloud (click here for their page) that they will be pretty damned good. I will definitely be in the audience for any Brosnan gigs in York. In fact if any of my promoter friends are reading this please check them out. This is very much a message to you Simon Pattinson!

Hello good people of the blogosphere and thanking you for coming to visit my blog. The With Just A Hint Of Mayhem blog is eight years old today, Thursday 9th February 2017. This blog is an Aquarius. So I was going to treat you to another numbers post (i.e. songs with 8 in the title) but then my wonderful wife Catherine a.k.a. Catwoman gave me an even better idea of which I will tell you more soon.

8th-wishes

Well, I'm dyslexic so writing about something I love: Music, might help but it's most likely just full of mistakes. That title is also lyrics from The Drones song called I Don't Want To Change. Oh, my name is William and thanks for having a look.
