Henry’s Swing Club @ The Brandling Villa. July 1

Need Your Love So Bad opened the show on a sweltering night at the Brandling Villa. Henry’s Swing Club house band the Lounge Lizards didn’t play too long, preferring a pint out of the spotlight. They hung around long enough to let Dave Heslop rattle the keys on Chuck Berry’s Reelin’ and Rockin’.
Thinman (a thin man guitar and vocals fronted trio) played post punk tunes (including original material) with well crafted monotone vocals. Craft beers vied with local micro brewery favourites on the bar. Mordue IPA won hands down.
Meanwhile, the main attraction (the reason to be in South Gosforth first Tuesday in the month) had arrived. Mick Cantwell (vocals and tenor sax) tore into Messin’ with the Kid backed by some smokin’ organ from Heslop. Stormy Monday Blues then Sonny Boy’s Help Me,  then he was gone. Cantwell is the real deal, make no mistake. If he turns up next month – Tuesday 5 August – you will be amazed. Be there.
Russell.
