The passion, energy and fun the 5-piece shows when they’re on stage you can’t honestly be standing still. Lots of people in the building nodding their heads, tapping their feet or clapping enthusiastically to the music without or with animation by charismatic lead singer Mat Partridge.
Soley Mourning playing Finfest today in Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire. There are some brilliant bands on with us over the weekend such as Jettblack and Dodgy. We are on stage at 2.30pm if you fancy making the most of the weather!
Taken from the Mambo County album and directed by Soley Mourning, this was filmed in summer 2007 on our first tour into Europe. We went to some great places, especially the Ghentfest. It was a really happy time for us and we have fond memories of it, all squashed into our little bus, hungover, smelling each others farts and trying to get sober enough to drive to the next town. We also met some great people who we are still in touch with today and some of them make an appearance in the video. When we got back to Blighty we dropped the amps into the studio and went out the back to film the rest of the video (or just dick about) infront of a bright blue wall. Hope you have some good personal memories of that time too.
On Zaire - What all the fuss is about though, is that from tracks like ‘Groundhog Saturday’, ‘Double Drop’ and ‘Way Down Low’ is that they alternate between the light hearted blues rock of the Black Crowes and the heavy funky groove of Zepp – and they do it pretty damn good too! Right from the go, “Zaire” has a smokin’ choogin’ rhythm that is guaranteed to move that body.
