...how can an 18 year old from Nottingham sound so raw, so mature, and merge the Clash with Donovan???. I have mostly been listening to... Jake Bugg. Sadly gigs all sold out :(:("""

My thoughts exactly Merv. More talent in his little finger (IMHO) than Simon Cowell may have entountered in his entire lifetime. Just hope the hype doesn't swallow him up...

Good to see & hear as Lulu states raw talent from Nottingham, think his cd will be soon joining my collection very soon.

Let's all go to see him....

I'm guessing that due to the average age of the audience, we'll have to book the balcony from the Muppets....:D

He IS good though eh? :thumbright:

And writes his own songs too. The cd is excellent (IMHO).

they recently did a session on 6music, they rock and still only 15 - 16 years old,
maybe someone cleverer than me could put a link up ,

Love the idea of an XRV outing to see him :thumbup:. Tickets are like gold dust though. Am teaching all day so no time to search, but will have a look this evening and see whether there is any possibility...you could be right about the Muppets, though, Kev... :D

Don't have time right now nick, but if nobody beats me to it, will see what I can do this evening :thumbup:

ok lulu,i'll have a crack at it myself,this usually results in a little box with a red cross but maybe i'll get it right this time
BBC Radio 6 Music - 6 Music Live at Maida Vale, February 2013, The Strypes live from Maida Vale, The Strypes - 6 Music Live Highlights
Mmmm not so sure about these guys - bit like 6th Form noise with guitarists off on their own thing and a singer who is not quite there. Jake Bugg can really ding and play and his sound seems old school bug has a freshness to it which brings it smack up to date.

Possibly a bit harsh. on the Strypes. A bit too manic for me at the (ahem - tender) age of - shall we say 21 again? :rolleyes: - but still refreshing in contrast to the manufactured c**p that gets into the charts. Could go far ...I'm sure that if I were 18 again I'd find them exciting. Six music is a fairly reliable barometer. But Jake Bugg somehow appeals despite my (advanced :rolleyes:) age....I guess musical taste is a very personal thing, but nice to be exposed to something different than that which we're fed by the likes of Simon Cowell et al. :thumbup:

well said lulu,whether its your cup of tea or not i find it very encouraging that young kids are actually learning how to play and write songs,and go down the traditional route of honing their craft by playing live performances ,building a fan base instead of jumping on the instant fame x factor bandwagon,
its been a while since a new talent has caught my ear but i think jake and the strypes have got something,hopefully kids like them can get the music biz back on track,think weve all heard enough of simon cowells rubbish
