The Filthy Tongues – Music News
First up have been a really younger band from Southampton, The Dead Freights. They appeared to have introduced their very own followers with them and their tackle indie/mod pop went down fairly nicely. I’d say that they’ve lots to study and that they should discover a sound that’s distinctive to them however they undoubtedly confirmed potential and I’d wish to see them once more in a yr or so.
Not so the second band on, Sister Witch. Incoherent vocals from the lead singer Lux Lyall and a stoner drone from the remainder of the band.

Finally the imposing figures of The Filthy Tongues hit the stage and it was instantly obvious that this was a band in a distinct league. Lead singer and guitarist Martin Metcalfe is an imposing determine in his black go well with and black hat and at first I used to be frightened that they’d be throwing out a Bad Seeds groove of sluggish darkness however in truth they blended up tracks from the ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ album in addition to new materials from the ‘Back To Hell’ album and the set moved with actual tempo and verve. There have been a couple of standout numbers in ‘Holy Brothers’, ‘Children Of The Filthy’ and an excellent model of ‘Mother’s Got A Knife’. They closed on an exquisite tackle Jacques Brel’s ‘In A Port In Amsterdam’. They are highly effective and impassioned and their darkish and moody numbers actually hit the purpose in a Dublin Castle that was fairly nicely packed and actually up for his or her ‘stuff’.
I’d like to see them once more, taking part in an extended set – an excellent and unique band.
