+ support Burnt out Wreck
Dark Emerald Highway is the fourth album from former Mamas Boys guitarist/songwriter, Pat McManus. His most personal and introspective album to date. Recorded around the time his father passed away, this is not a mournful collection of songs, rather a collection of tracks that positively reflect on life, family, and the world around. Still holding true to his Celtic roots, and mixed with his own distinctive style of Blues Rock, it is easy to see just why Pat was nicknamed "The Professor" when he was just a boy starting out. Indeed, with the sad and untimely passing of Rory Gallagher, and then Gary Moore, Pat McManus can lay claim to the title of "The last of the truly great Irish blues rock Guitarists".
The Pat McManus Band also perform a selection of the Classic Mamas Boys hits, including Runaway Dreams, Gentleman Rogues, and the classic, Needle In The Groove.
BURNT OUT WRECK
Debut album ‘Swallow’
The debut album from ex Heavy Pettin's Gary Moat & Burnt Out Wreck was released Spring 2017. 'Swallow' is a huge slice of full on, punchy classic hard rock with guitar riffs galore! Released on TRHRC through Cherry Red Records, this album is every bit as good as you would expect from one of Scotland's original rock n rollers, Gary Moat. 'Swallow' is co-produced by Gary Moat and Steve Rispin (Asia, Inglorious), mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Killers, Jack White, Rolling Stones etc) and is set for a February 2017 release.
“Moat proves that neither he nor his band mates live up their moniker, but are a re-energised musical force. One of the highlight sets of the weekend”.
HRH – UBER ROCK – MARK ASHBY 18/11/17
“These guys play a raunchy, groove laden melodic rock sound. Drawing on the recently released album, Moat demonstrated why these guys merit a shot on the bigger stage with his superb voice”.
“Classic 80’s style classic rock at its best with these guys”.
MY GLOBAL MIND
“This damn find hard rock, unashamedly pre-nineties and all the better for it”.
“It’s the kind of album that just sticks in your psyche as you spin it while not totally concentrating. You find yourself coming back to it time and time again”.
“Gary is the vocalist of Burn Out Wreck and for a man who plied his trade as a drummer, he has one of the best rock voices I’ve heard for years. If you love Classic
Hard Rock mixed with some Southern Blues and you have a hankering for AC/DC, UFO, Rhino Bucket, and Thunder that’s brilliant played, with chorus’s catchier than chlamydia, and some lyrics straight out of the David Coverdale book of sexual innuendo, then Burnt Out Wreck are going to have you dribbling in places you didn’t know dribbled. Welcome back, Gary. Even if you are annoyingly talented.”
“This is a hugely enjoyable album that can be consumed in large quantities”.
