Unsigned: Patrons – The Momentary Effects of Sunlight EP

Now, those of you who read this blog regularly (well last year when I was updating it more regularly) know I like music. A lot. If I am not buying it, I’m out watching it – which usually then results in me buying more.

Anyhow, long story short, I live in Brighton UK and we have this little festival called Great Escape that is kind of the highlight of our already quite amazing live scene. 300+ bands, 30+ venues, blah blah blah. Anyway last year I went to the pre-event warm up at the Prince Albert and came across a post hardcore band called Patrons, made up by four lads from Plymouth – and 1 song in to their set, I thought these guys were a bit special. By the time we got to the end of their set I could not thrust my money into their hands quick enough to get hold of the cassette EP (yes, they were that good I bought a cassette, and I hate cassettes).

So nearly 1 year later, and over 1,200 miles of driving around to see them the play live, they are releasing their next EP – and it is a fucking corker. Everyone who reviews it, loves it and the release date is oh so close.

So if you are a fan of Thrice, Funeral for a Friend, Fightstar, Reuben or any awesome post hardcore band – you owe it music to buy this EP. It’s only £4, and I guarantee you will not regret it. Link below.

Mariachi El Bronx – Mariachi El Bronx (II) and (III) LP

So, a few weeks back I was lucky enough to go and see Mariachi El Bronx live at the Komedia in Brighton, and they did not disappoint!

As you would expect, they totally owned the place. I will link a review or two later on.

After the show, I was lucky enough to get them guys and gal to sign a couple of items from my collection (to be honest the only items in my collection for MEB).

First up, was the limited edition Mexican flag version of the Mariachi El Bronx (II) (tri-split, green, white and red) LP.

 Secondly is the newer Mariachi El Bronx (III) LP on translucent orange (or gold as some people call it). 





Am really chuffed to have both these items on my collection and for them to be signed, just need to get hold of Mariachi El Bronx (I) which was released in the US only, on clear vinyl. One day, I’m sure!
