Maybe Myrtle Tyrtle

Maybe Myrtle Tyrtle formed in 2005 as a breath of fresh air amid an explosion of saxophones, guitars, fiddles originally influenced by The Doors, Bob Dylan, Led Zepplin and The Coral. They have a reputation for energetic live performance, adding hillbilly fiddling, reggae tainted bass and twisted brass to the "bum-chack" rhythm. Delivered with the "Spirit that runs through Gogol Bordello" and many bottles of Green Ginger Wine. The "Tyrtle" sound has been developing and new tracks have the feel of a pumping gig with the polished studio sound, a fine combination.

Tipitina

It doesn’t often happen, and that’s putting it mildly. When was the last time a bundle of youthful energy, polished musicianship and originality like Tipitina landed on the mat unannounced? It’s quite disconcerting. ‘Where did this suddenly come from?’ you ask. The prosaic reply is Preston, Lancs, but the real answer is New Orleans and a few other hot spots along the way; from juke joints and dance halls, warm nights and windy streets, good times remembered and a few bad moments best forgotten.
