The Strypes

You would be forgiven for thinking that, being a frog, I would make everyone listen to Sir Paul’s Frog Chorus on a continuous loop in the LeafletFrog factory and offices, with the purpose of, ahem, “motivating” the staff.

However, that’s not really my scene. When it comes to songs in the old hit parade, I prefer popular beat combos that are a bit more “with it”. A bit like me!

Mark ‘Roddy’ Holme works in Despatch and has been raving about a band he’d seen, and he suggested that we could add a review to the LeafletFrog website. I hopped to it, and thought of another idea – Roddy Reviews. This is the first one - I hope you like it!

Who

The Strypes

What

Young, 4-piece rock, rhythm and blues band from Cavan in Ireland.

Think

The Yardbirds, The Who, Artic Monkeys and The Black Keys, signed to Elton John’s record label.

Where

The Ritz, Manchester, 26 September

Verdict

Relentless, energetic set from a very talented band, destined for bigger things.

Don’t just take Mark’s word for it - check out the link!
