.@louelladeville_ @PlanetMosh review of .@HeartbreakRmdy self titled EP

Formed in Cumbria in early 2013. ‘Groove led’ Rock band Heartbreak Remedy released their self-titled debut EP earlier this year.

Truth with it’s memorable refrain is similar to Vintage Caravan’s Craving. Hair of the Dog (highlight track) has a great rhythm and riffs. Keep Rollin’ a groovy number say Deep Purple meets Lynyrd Skynyrd and lastly In the Gutter which reminded me of Green Day’s Hichin a Ride.

A catchy four track EP to give you a taster of this charismatic band, who have recently toured with The Last Vegas and, had/have appearances at several festivals including Maryport Festival tomorrow.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
