Walter Mitty & The Realists, Dolans Limerick 12/03/2011 Review
An amazing night of local talent started off with Brendan Markham warming up the packed warehouse. I really enjoyed his brand of musical story-telling, one highlight was a song about a cannibal and his appetite, which certainly held my attention – just what you’d expect from a good story-teller. At times, he reminded me of Mike Ryan from Tuesday Blue, but his style was most definitely his own. You may remember Brendan from the excellent Limerick band, The Driven. His set was a great way to set the tone for the evening. Unfortunately didn’t manage to get a copy of his new album, which is entitled ‘False Witness’. I’m really looking forward to checking the full album out and seeing him live again, Check him out here :http://www.myspace.com/brendanmarkham
Next up we had the brilliant Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters. The lead singer seems to have stolen the voice of The Stroke’s front-man, Julian Casablancas! It’s uncanny how similar they sound, but it did in no way detract from a blistering performance. The set was excellently executed and flowed seamlessly from one great track to another. The band is flying high at the moment, with the single, “Thread the Needle” currently getting great praise and with an album on the way in May, these guys are going places. Looking forward to the album and more great gigs from the guys.http://www.myspace.com/foxjawbountyhunters
Rounding off the evening were the much-awaited, Walter Mitty & the Realists. It’s my fourth time seeing them live and as always they didn’t disappoint. The energy and fun they bring packs a punch each time, and the tunes are severely catchy. They played a brilliant set, the highlight of which was undoubtedly, “Red is the Number”, which harkened the return of special guests Brendan Markham, Shane Serrano (FJBH) and the girls from “We Should be Dead”. The news that the band are moving location to England is such a shame. Looking forward to a hometown reunion gig from them in the future.
One hell of a great night was had by all I’m sure -cheers for such an excellent night!
