The Destroyers

As yesterday was St Pat’s day I spent the evening visiting my Mum. While I was there I caught up with my brother, Rob, who asked me about the fabulously riotous Brum-based band The Destroyers. For Rob’s benefit – and anyone else who might be interested – here’s their video for Out of Babel:

The Destroyers are a genre-breaking 15 piece group who describe their sound as “Eastern European folk music with a gothic turbo charge.” They’re a phenomenal live act who seamlessly combine the spirit of The Pogues, a Black Rider-era Tom Waits and The Wedding Present’s Ukranian John Peel Sessions to powerful effect.

They are, to use the common parlance, good shit.
