Full disclosure - Paul Jack is very grateful to drummer Josie for getting in touch about their new EP. He's found a new band he loves. Here's what he had to say about their EP T-Byrds Are Go!:
Helluva shame that we don't hear much about Tequilla Mockingbyrd in the UK. They're a hard rocking Aussie band that know how to write honest and dirty hard rock n roll and are fully deserving of more exposure over 'ere.
Blasting at you out of Melbourne, this awesome all female band of chocaholic T-Byrds have got a kickass second EP out called T-Byrds Are Go. It's a four track mini extravaganza of rock goodies:
Let's start you off with a shot of Tequila Mockingbyrd's Money Tree, a maxed out hard rocking track full of energy and youthful enthusiasm. The T-Byrds hit you full in the face with a punchy riff filled extravaganza designed to make you wanna shake it!
The momentum doesn't let up as we encounter Everyone Down, an explosion of dirty rock n roll. Cleverly juxtaposing a heavy duty grind with a ripping fast pace, Everyone Down is what had rock is all about.
This one's a guitar pounding number likely to drive the crowd nuts. Proper catchy riffs twirl around a memorable chorus, interspersed with edgy solos, building to a go-wild climax.
Shut Me Down
Finishing off nicely we have [Paul Jack's favourite - Ed.], Shut Me Down. A nice n crunchy start leads into a rocking number with overtones of a Girlschool blast from the 80s. Worthy of being a single in its own right. [And the theme is a bit like the way we all speak to PJ when he is too loud- Big Ed.] The pulsing bassline gets right to you, and Shut Me Down races along to a climactic finish. Nice.
If you like well written, well performed classic kickass rock then what are you waiting for? Head on over to http://tequilamockingbyrdband.com/store and buy a copy.
