Remember how excited some people got when a C86-inspired, hotly tipped US band played Chorlton Irish Club recently? If not read what Indie Credential and Altsounds thought of The Pains of Being Pure At Heart at this address in May. Tonight San Diego’s Crocodiles play, promoting their debut album “Summer of Hate”. Crocodiles are inspired by Jesus and Mary Chain rather than the twee-pop end of the C86 spectrum; listening to a couple of songs from the album (including the one posted) I couldn’t work out if the Reid Brothers should be pleased with the flattery or considering legal action. But this is a good thing.
The Irish Club may not be appear very rock ‘n’ roll on the surface but several support bands, loads of DJs and an upcoming headliner should be able to overcome the deficiencies of the venue. Tonight is a Blowout promotion and tickets are only £5.
