Today’s recommendation is Ming City Rockers one of the very few bands to grab my attention from Immingham in Lincolnshire. The band consists of a scruffy bunch of rock’n’rollers named; Clancy Jones on Rhythm Guitar, vocals & harmonica, Morely Adams on Lead Guitar & backing vocals, Doc Ashton on the drums and Jakki Walsh on bass guitar.
They are definitely a band you have to see live to fully appreciate their craft. I first saw them several months ago at The Sesh which is a long standing and outstanding new bands night in Hull, just over the bridge for the band (you should check it out on a Tuesday night, it’s free). They blew me away with their on stage energy. They have an an old fashioned punk style, but they have elements in it that are unmistakably individual to them.
I’ve been playing them since on the BBC Introducing Humberside, but unfortunately there has only been a couple of tracks that Ofcom rules allow us to play onair (language issues & rudeez). So this one is just for my blog:
They have a good quality website with all the gigs on: http://www.mingcityrockers.co.uk/ Go and see them live.
