I’ve always been a big fan of the Beat Poets and try to give them as much coverage as I can. They’ve a great work ethic, have their heads screwed on and are a kickass live band.Where is he going with this, I hear you cry.Well, their singer John has resurrected his blog (http://arockpoet.vox.com/) and there’s a great video from their time in America last month on there. My favourite part is when guitarist Beefy Doran says Times Square reminds him of “the Quays in the Town.” He’s wrong of course. There isn’t anything that even comes close to the Quays in Newry.
Anyway, check out the video below and look for them on MySpace www.mypace.com/beatpoets. The song ‘Bloodline’ is the business.
