No.1 in NME’s list of Top 5 bands to watch The Strypes make a welcome return to Dublin this December.
The Strypes are a 4-piece beat group from Cavan. They beat group! They winkle pick! They turtle neck! They got love if you want it! They billy boy arnold! They slim harpo! They can’t buy me love! They gotta dance just to keep from cryin’! They eat sleep MOD! They yardbird! They groove up slowly! They mojo filter! They got their mojo working! They mojo magazine! They use the word ‘mojo’ too much! They dazed and confused! They rolling stone! They merseybeat! They woolly bully! They goose-step mama! They Flat Lake floosy with the floy-floy! They muddy waters! They john lee hooker!
With an average age of just 15, these young mods from Cavan are all over the radio with the lead track from their first ep “You can’t judge a book by the cover”.
National Radio support from Today Fm and 2fm plus all the regional stations has been huge, twitter support from the likes of Glen Hansard and Tommy Tiernan and an all conquering appearance on the top rated Late Late TV show means the Young Gifted and Blue Ep has made the Strypes one of the biggest breakthough acts of the year.
Their incendiary live show see’s this these hep cats who look like a young Beatles but rock it like the Rolling Stones channel the musical spirit of the Who, Bo Diddley and every mod who ever gave a damn.
Don’t miss the Strypes in Whelans this December 18th
