The Filthy Tongues
The Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough.
Edinburgh's Filthy Tongues return to The Westgarth Club in Middlesbroughto promote the new album Back To Hell
A welcome return for The Filthy Tongues following last years head line show and support slots with Pete Wylie, Brix & Extricated.
After 2016's highly rated Jacobs Ladder debut the band are playing select shows to promote the new album Back To Hell.
Formed from the ashes of Goodbye Mr McKenzie the band feature Martin Metcalfe, Derek Kelly & Fin Wilson as the core line up but are supplemented live occasionally with additional percussion and strings.
The band sing about the seeming underbelly of home town Edinburgh. The songs are dark and gothic but uplifting . Although there echoes of Nick Cave at his darkest, Tom Waits and tinges of Bowie/Stooges the band are uniquel and as previous shows on Teesside have shown very popular.
