Liverpool Lads Back In Brighton
2nd October at the GREEN DOOR STORE
by Meghan Cheesman
The 2nd October is just around the corner, so I think it’s time to introduce you guys a bit more to the bands playing that night.
RED RUM CLUB is an Alternative Rock band from Liverpool. With Francis on lead vocals, Michael and Tom on guitar and backing vocals, Simon on bass, Neil on the drums and Joe “The Blow” on the trumpet, the six Scousers have managed to create catchy and poetic tunes. It all started in 2012 when Mike invited the guys round to his.
“We all played in various different bands in Liverpool so we were all aware of each other. When Mike invited us round to his, we were a bit suspicious of why. But we were relieved to find out he just wanted to jam. Quickly realising we had loads in common and musically jellying perfectly, we started writing our own stuff. Shortly after we started gigging locally. With the gigs getting bigger and interest growing, it wasn’t news to us, we had to leave our beloved Liverpool and hit other towns.” (RED RUM CLUB)
Since then the band has been in various cities all over the UK and it was only a matter of time before they would play their first gig in Brighton. With Seven Stars being a perfect venue for new and upcoming artists, QM Records put RED RUM CLUB on.
Before that night, I had never heard of them, but ever since I can’t stop listening to their singles on Spotify. All dressed in black and rocking the late 50’s Grease inspired rock look, the guys made quite an appearance.
Being influenced by great bands such as The Beatles, The Killers and Arctic Monkeys, RED RUM CLUB have found a missing spot in the music scene and are now the ones to watch.
With their new single ‘Friend Of A Friend’ being released this Friday (29th September), the 2nd October is the perfect opportunity to see these guys live.
They will be touring the U
