Having twiddled and fiddled with our respective instruments over the years a group of mates finally decided to set up a band together to fuel their egos and provide for some full volume riffs and beats without annoying the neighbours too much by using a purpose-built local recording studio.
"Brent" was a working title for the band as a result of 2 of the band members having to bring their guitars in to the office occasionally in the style of David Brent from The Office.
So far the band have played three gigs in central Dublin - 2 at The Mercantile in aid of charity and 1 at Slattery's for a mate's leaving bash.
The flavour is very much blues / rock and is currently all cover versions but we have also started working on our own stuff. The set list to date is as follows:
All Right Now, Free
Lil Devil, The Cult
Living Loving Maid, Led Zeppelin
You Shook Me All Night Long, AC/DC
Proud Mary, Creedance Clearwater Revival
Sweet Emotion, Aerosmith
Sunshine of Your Love, Cream
Love Removal Machine, The Cult
Rocks, Primal Scream
Jailbird, Primal Scream
Long Way to the Top, AC/DC
Roaslie, Thin Lizzy
Watch this space for future updates.
The band members are as follows:
Roy 'the boy' McCarthy - Drums
Stephen 'no relation' McCarthy - Guitar
Brian 'slightly-slow hand' Doherty - Guitar
Darren 'how do you play this thing?' Wright - Bass, Vocals
