You know when a band starts a song with a 1 2 1234 this is down to earth and gritty and Illegal Notes don’t disappoint.

There is a punchy earthiness to the band, that I just needed to get back to this afternoon, I could have found it by digging out an old Sham 69 vinyl, but so much better that there is a current band who are trying to explore that same root of existence.

As an old punk rocker I love how songs called Little Jimmy Boy appear as a title, oh The Undertones beckon, yet, I still don’t want to head in to that pile, as Illegal Notes take the ears on a swirling ride, wow, the Kinks have appeared now.

You will have got the drift, Illegal Notes, are a mash of influences who manage to carve their own space and are already sitting on my play-list, if only there were more than six songs to take a listen… patience never was one of my very few virtues.

Sometimes you just want to take a band by the scruff of the neck and say, ‘make more music NOW’.

Thanks Charlie, just what I needed this afternoon as I have been missing Julie so much today, music really does make the world a far better space.
