AMP grand final
This will be a fantastic weekend. Keep your eyes and ears well opened for one of the best bands to be arriving out of Yorkshire since, hmmm, in my opinion, well before the Artic Monkeys!

The Cockpit 22nd November 2013

What a show, all acts were good, yet we were certainly blown away with just how much ‘The Rook’ have come on in just a year, an absolutely brilliant show being the main support act to the Vendettas EP launch, with some very flash playing! These guys have what it takes, all own original songs, very well wrote, average age is just 19, get yourselves to see them at the earliest possible chance!

At last, I’m posting a few songs by The Rook, now, the thing here is, not too much typing from me – shhh, but five superb original songs, these guys have what it takes, and beyond.

Its not very often we view bands open up with an instrumental, especially original stuff, but it sounds like the guitar is telling the start to a story.

There you have it, very little writing on my behalf, left it to the music, again, superb are the words.

Pure absolute power…

Umphhh, that is all I can say, a perfect blend of the 300 Watt Marshall cab and the 150 Watt Bugera head – brilliance, I cant hear what your saying…

Tonight will be sooo good, Matts band supporting Jacobs band at Delius lived next door, cant wait, a first of its kind with much to follow.
