Rock­ers Bird Brain Mafia pro­vid­ing the fire­works

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

IF you’re look­ing for some live mu­sic ac­tion to com­pli­ment your fire­works this week­end then Fri­day night at The Crown and Treaty might be right up your street.

If your street is Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge, that is (that’s where you’ll find the pub).

One of the most en­ter­tain­ing bands I’ve seen in years, Bird Brain Mafia, are back stomp­ing those fa­mil­iar boards and to para­phrase Jimi Hen­drix: “I prom­ise each and every one of you you won’t be bored”.

Hilling­don-based three piece BBM are ex­pres­sive, ex­cit­ing, gim­micky, witty, cre­ative and fun with a cap­i­tal F. They are all over the stage and dance floor like they refuse to recog­nise the imag­i­nary line be­tween au­di­ence and band.

Their al­bum PMA came out in July this year and af­ter one lis­ten I had to say that Bird Brain Mafia are the band that Green Day could have been. Check out www. bird­brain­mafia.band­camp.com

On the same bill are Sen­pai (www.sound­cloud.com/sen­pai-uk), whose screech­ing gui­tar-laden grimy grunge sound will cer­tainly sharpen your ap­petite.

Furs and Masks (www. sound­cloud.com/furs-and-masks), who are tak­ing over the Fri­day night slot for the du­ra­tion of Novem­ber to show­case their im­pres­sive cat­a­log of well writ­ten and ar­ranged an­thems, will no doubt be top­ping the bill be­fore Yuck In­die DJ Steven rocks you into the early hours.

Re­mem­ber it’s free en­try be­fore 10pm and £5 af­ter.
