John Blek and the Rats – Cork indie/pop

What you may need to know…

01. Long-running, underrated road warriors of Leeside-based guitar noises, are John Blek and his Rats.

02. After an extended period of solo touring around Europe, the band is back on the road with an extensive transnational run of dates.

03. Streaming above is the video for last year’s single Dead Friends, taken from second band album Borders.

04. They perform this Sunday at the Cork Opera House, as part of Right Here, Right Now festival, in a double-headliner with The Shaker Hymn.

Thoughts: Weighty, folk-tinged guitar-pop tempered with a double-dose of reality.

        just to continue on the Strokes line if I may, the band member on the left has more than a passing resemblance to Albert Hammond Jr (with boobs, obviously).

        Not saying it’s not going to work out for this lot, but, if it doesn’t, they’re half way there to being a cracking Strokes tribute band. Not sure how necessary that is, though.
