That’s how fRoots Magazine’s Simon Jones described the headline guests at Liverpool Acoustic Live this coming Friday 28th September 2012, and who are we to argue?
Merry Hell play folk rock with punk sensibilities. Born from the ashes of local favourite band The Tansads, the new 8 piece crew are famous across the UK for their energetic live shows and catchy songs.
Liverpool Acoustic Live takes place at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street. Doors open at 8.00pm and the music kicks off at 8.30pm and finishes no later than 11.15pm to enable people to get the last train home.
Support on the night is from The 4.20s, Mark Wynn [York], and 15 year old Sophia Ben-Yousef.
The Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight #78 features one track from each of the artists and can be found here.
Don’t forget, we’ve got a facebook event page for it, so if that particular social media outlet is your bag then come and click the ‘Going’ button and tell us who you’re most looking forward to seeing.
And to get you in the mood for Friday’s show we’ve got a couple of treats for you.
1) Here’s the official video for Merry Hell’s Drunken Serenade, the opening track from their current album Blink…. And You Miss It.
2) Merry Hell were on Billy Butler’s afternoon show today (Tuesday 25th) and we’ve got the interview for you to enjoy here.
