The Last



Like the thorns on a rose it's pretty, but just a little bit dangerous. Fun, straightforward Indie rock, "THE LAST" have been composing and producing their own music since 2009. The band started in the city of Toluca de Lerdo, in the State of Mexico. (Yes, Mexico is a state in the country of The United Mexican States. Geography lesson - Google it)

The music is fresh without any real embellishments which is a credit to the dimension of their sound. There is a good magic on this band. A clean mix and clear production make the sounds even more suave, like smooth tequila.

 Jaime Jesus Caballero Padilla (guitarist and vocalist) and Victor Antonio Lira Aguilar (bass and vocals) along with Madian Rodriguera Prado (guitarist and vocalist) Manuel Buenrostro Valencia (drummer and vocalist) are working hard promoting and performing in many local cultural events, and Jaime has even played in The Cavern Club in Liverpool, UK (home of The Beatles and quite a few other acts).

I asked them if there was anything they would like to say to their fans and I received this message:
  "IF THERE IS ONE THING WE WANT TO TELL YOU IT WOULD BE THIS ONE: LIVE IN LOVE! SOMETIMES LIFE IS HARD BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO BE READY, TO LIVE READY TO FIGHT! , THIS IS OUR WAY TO TRY TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE, WE DON´T WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT TO FEEL BUT CERTAINLY WE´D LOVE TO BE PART OF YOUR FEELINGS SO THANK YOU FOR MAKING US PART OF YOUR LIFE AND FOR BEING A PART OF THIS MAGYCAL JOURNEY CALLED LIFE"


The are available at BandCamp. and they can be followed  on Instagram and on Twitter and Facebook as well as SoundCloud.

The Nigel Purcell Trio

Ok. Wrap your head around this. This is a Hard working and prolific surrealistic three ring circus. The variety of their music can only be experienced by checking out all their work. This simplest way I can describe them is as follows:

The Erdington Sound is the name of the circus. 
1) The first ring in the circus is "Andrew Purcell Music".  
2) The second ring in the circus is "The Nigel Purcell Trio" which is composed of  Andrew Purcell and  Nigel "Low temperature" Ratcliffe and Linda the laptop.
3) The third ring in the Circus is "Loft 51" which is The Nigel Purcell Trio and Dave Menear.

These seasoned veterans of Music have a uniqueness to their music which is hauntingly subtle. Ranging from Bluesy to Pop to almost Metal, at times, and, at other times incorporating elements of psychedelia the music is playful while still being a seriously constructed art form.

Besides subscribing to them on YouTube and following them on Twitter the best resource to fully explore them is on their own Website.
