JERMEY NEALE'S 5 FAVE BRISSY BANDS:
Young Trouble: Last show I saw featured a legitimate hip hop beef from a local MC who couldn't handle the truth bombs that Young Trouble was dropping. He just tells it like it is. Biggest rapper in East Bris. Shop local.
CORPORATE VIBES: Corporations are all around us. Generally plotting ways to make us part with our hard earned cash. These guys deal in a new currency - intense contemporary elevator music for the soul. Lifting you higher, one level at a time. It's all about enjoyment but most importantly, improvement. Their bio asks you to "Let the soothing sounds of Corporate Vibes create efficiency, autonomy and joy in your life”. So, will you let them?
DEAFCULT: Music you can feel. Emotionally sure. But also physically. Four-guitar attack. Excellent shoe gaze melodies and male/female vocal interplay to the max. Amazing live but also exceptionally captured in recorded format on their debut self titled 7-tracker.
Big Strong Brute: Paul Donoughue and his crew have been kicking around for a little while but I saw him play recently for the first time in a couple of years and everything has changed. I felt like I was in City Slickers 2 and I'd just found the hidden treasure. But where was Curly’s identical brother Duke? I dunno.
Babaganouj: They're mainstays but there's many reasons for it. They're loveable people and they deliver the goods live. Charles Sale is one of the most commanding frontmen in the biz and it’s captivating to watch him constantly shift between shredding vocals and shredding guitar licks/solos. Plus their track Can't Stop is still my favourite pop song of the year.
