Medal for Mutley

Now based in Brighton, The Mutts released their debut single in May and profess that they live to gig! Plenty of practice has honed their live act into a compelling show that today sees them fly through half an hour of dirty rock and roll.

As soon as they hit the stage the singer is going for it, he has a look of Jim Morrison about him with his black shirt and shoulder length hair. Indeed the fourth song actually sounds like a modern day Doors song with its blues based, but upbeat tempo.

The second song is fast and furious with excellent busy guitar work and a solid bass line all backed up with solid drumming, they soon win over the crowd and go down really well. Throwing in some AC/DC style riffs and some wicked guitar solos further adds to their appeal. There doesn't seem to be the same draft in the Rock Sound tent today which means the smoke effects linger on the stage and give the band a real stage presence when lit by the lights. A healthy crowd for a mid afternoon slot give them a bigger reaction as their set progresses and it's well justified.

Big riffs and chunky bass lines punctuate the whole set, whilst what they do is not wholly original, they do exceedingly well and it's a solid performance. They have enough in their songs to suggest that there can only be better to come from The Mutts and understandably they leave to a great reception.
