Awesome bands: We Rock Like Girls Don't

Last night I got to see the fantastic We Rock Like Girls Don't live for the third time and the second time in a venue local to me, thanks in a way to my Pigtails and Army Boots live night as the sound engineer Duncan, actually asked them to support his punk covers band Swindle at Club Riga and they agreed- hooray!

Each and everytime I have seen them whatever the circumstances they have always performed a fantastic and lively performance. The first time I saw them live was at Ladygarden in Cambridge last year, which was in a tiny and very crowded pub and it was a proper rock n roll finish to the event- then I saw them at my event, sadly due to things running late there wasn't a massive crowd for them but they still managed to perform a great rock set, and then last night I was really happy for them as despite not being a 'punk' band and being a support act, the crowd reacted very positively to them and were asking about cds etc.

I've known about WRLGD for quite some time, back in the ye old MySpace days and had one of their cds sent to me years ago but it was after seeing them at Cambridge that I got back in touch and subsequently got more of their music and even interviewed them for my show.

In recent months the album 'How Did We Get to This' has been one of my most played- particularly 'I Just Want to Stick My Head in the Bass Drum' and 'Rock n Roll Freak' there may only be two of them but they make a hell of a lot of noise and it's an excellent rock n roll explosion of joy for your ears.

If you haven't already checked them out, I highly suggest you do- they sound great recorded but even more amazing live- here are some videos of their music for you to enjoy:
