Review // Mercury & May @ The Penny Bank

Sunday night, it was time for another Live@Five gig at Scunthorpe town centre pub, The Penny Bank. This week was a little different as it was a later start for a big tribute act, Mercury & May. This week was ticketed at £5, but I feel people really got their money’s worth.

Review // The Tripdown Project @ Penny Bank

This Bank Holiday Sunday there was a lot of live music going on across Scunthorpe. If you attended a gig and fancy writing a review then email it to scunnynights@gmail.com

The Penny Bank has been rocking it’s foundations a fair few times in the recent months but if you are a fan of classic tunes from that genre then last Bank Holiday Sunday it was the place to be.

The popular venue played host to a truly astounding 60s / 70s rock anthems set from The Tripdown Project. Far above your usual pub band, these guys play at a very professional level and had toes tapping and heads bopping from their first track onwards.

Their rousing set included tracks from such giants as Creme, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Bowie and even The Beatles and Elton John among many others. Real crowd pleasers which was easily reflected by the patrons getting to their feet – especially during their well loved rendition of “Twist and shout” and there was a bit of a hair storm to rival the 70s during their powerhouse finale with Black Sabbath’s “War pigs”.

These lads did their heroes proud, you only had to close your eyes to their riffs and you felt like you were in presence of the Clapton, Ronson, Townsend et all.

I very much hope they make a return visit – if they do, go see them – you will not be disappointed.

The Audience was filling up nicely

Wheatus This Sunday In Scunthorpe

Wheatus played Scunthorpe back in 2003 at The Baths Hall and will be returning this Sunday for the first time in years! But this time they will be playing at the legendary live music venue “The Lincoln Imp”.

It’s hard to believe Wheatus’ debut album is 17 years old this year.

Like so many worldwide hits before and since, “Teenage Dirtbag”, the band’s ode-to-adolescence and inescapable breakthrough, seems timeless. Dateless. As if it’s always existed. It’s certainly reached subsequent generations to the one that moshed to it first time around.

“That’s probably the most astonished I’ve ever been on-stage, when those kids sang back to us every night,” says the band’s Brendan B Brown.

He’s referring to his experience on tour with Busted last year, when those old enough to remember the early Noughties sang away with much newer fans. Regardless of age, they all knew “Teenage Dirtbag.” “I thought it would be good, but I wasn’t prepared for the crazy reception we got. It was extraordinary for a support act to get that kind of love.”

Brendan, always singular in his vision, is now also the only member of the line-up remaining. It’s nothing new, he says, but also couldn’t be happier with the current situation – “I spent quite a few years writing & demoing the first album by myself. When I consider the line-up changes over the years it’s 98% positive memories. There was only ever one true falling out. Currently, from a musical point of view, we’re greasier with Leo Freire and Matthew T Milligan as the rhythm section than we’ve ever been. It’s really starting to grow me in good funk mould. Plus we’re all adults, so that helps.”

“Album seven is halfway recorded, so we’ll try to finish that in time for Christmas. Then, in 2018, we’ve got some re-organising to do. I have a plan for a retrospective box-set style re-release of everything we’ve ever done and then some… Finally we’re gonna get the album one vinyl package together along with everything else re-released on vinyl – in some cases, remixed and remastered too. Lots of work to do in 2018. And then, after that, we’ll be gearing up for the 20th anniversary tour.”

Brendan B Brown / Guitar & Vocal.
