The Blue Collars

This is another Ronseal Band who fill me with a smile – Let’s step back a moment – Ronseal band? Well we did that sometime in 2011, you haven’t read the website enough – It does as it says on the tin.

This is a superlative, tightly wrapped reflective of the world around. The listener is taken through tours of the silhouettes of discarded and disbanded empty factories.   Through the trough of despair the quintet raise a fist of anger and more than that a direction to an open space and possibility.

There is no pretence in the tightly woven music that emerges through the speakers. Sharply placed drums ring like a production line metronome whilst the instruments weave a tour of angst and above it all rises a desolate vocal as the wringing lyrics tell the story of the reality of The Blue Collars. This is music precisely of its time and a sound that should already be carved in the embers of 2008 -.

I would guess a great night out if the recorded material is anything to go by.
