The Bridge

Sex and drugs a guide for people who need to know (Demo)

It is patently obvious from the outset that The Bridge is going to divide critics in the same way that many great, good, notorious or crap bands have oft done in the past. There will be those who will dub them as derivative as a sausage making machine with a clock stuck on it. However, there is also enough evidence on this tempting three track demo, like in opener ‘Pain Towers’ to suggest that they have what it takes to pour rocket fuel into the fiery rock engine ignited by Jet. This track is a high pitched rock pounder, featuring lle Almqvist (Hives) type vocals that kick in to give the track added vibrancy.

The sheer power, energy and anger possessed by this Warrington based outfit could see them making more trips over the murky Mersey waters, out of town to spread their dingy and powerful sound. The key to their success is the last track ‘PYT’ featuring Jaegger meets Caleb Followill vocals, against a back drop of ripping The Music style instrumentals and bizarre hip hop like backing vocals in places. Thus demonstrating that unlike many garage rock bands The Bridge possesses diversity to go with their boldness. Suffice to say these Howley howlers will be talked about.

The Bridge support the Might Mani at the WA1 CLUB, Warrington ( Sakey Street) 04/07/04. Tickets for this event can be obtained by calling the ticketline; 01925638776.
