12 Dirty Bullets review @ O2 Academy Liverpool

12 Dirty Bullets are a young, 4 piece band from West London who are currently taking the UK, Europe and also the USA by storm, after 2 separate tours there last year. They have picked up an award on the way and are currently in the middle of their much awaited Motown In Your Town tour, which brought them to the O2 Academy Liverpool, for the 1st time ever, supporting Catfish and the Bottlemen last night

From the get go, 12 Dirty Bullets commanded the downstairs stage at the Academy. With guitar riffs and drum beats booming across the room, they had the crowd enthralled and bouncing along with them. With songs like, "Fat Man" a catchy rock number with witty lyrics and "Champagne and Cocaine" a very early Arctic Monkeys influenced track and a highly energetic performance throughout, especially from the drummer, Joe Cotterill,  you can see why they are getting a huge fan base and winning respect throughout the music industry.

For me though, I have to admit, I've never been a huge fan of anything resembling the Arctic Monkeys, (sorry guys) but I can appreciate their talent for lyrics and definitely their on stage style and enthusiasm. 

Lead singer, Jamie Jamieson's vocals are full of angst and a certain rawness, that brings their songs to life, unfortunately, the sound man in charge of his mic, didn't do him justice. Listening to them on line proved this But I have to say I love love loved "Fat Man" and had it buzzing around my head for the rest of the night.
