Music You Should Listen To: Irish rockers “Valentino is Dead”
These dudes got into contact with me via Twitter and they have a sound that is everything I personally look for in a band.
“No strangers to the music scene, Keith Smith (vocals, guitar) and Boey (guitar) have cut their teeth in other bands over the years, toured east coast America, played festivals and shows in Germany, toured with Rancid and played support to The Buzzcocks, Undertones, Less Than Jake and Bowling for Soup to name but a few.
Completing the line-up is David Black on drums and Clive Walsh on bass who have both played in a number of accomplished Irish bands over the years, and provide a very tight, exciting and dynamic quality to the line up.”
If you dig the sounds of Rancid, Less Than Jake and similar bands as much as I do, you won’t be disappointed (and hell I’m Celtic-American so the fact that these dudes are from the motherland makes it that much cooler). These guys have a sound that is both marketable and awesome to dance to (try it for yourselves!)
