General Fiasco - The Best Pop Band From Northern Ireland Since Ash or even The Undertones?

Three gigs in seven daysis a lot for me in recent times , but this was another stunning one , so I've been well rewarded for staying out late!! I first saw General Fiasco sandwiched between The Plan For Tonight and Fighting With Wire at the Cluney , but this was my first view of them as headliners.

Support was The Farrels and the excellent 3 Foot Ninja who finished their set with a storming version of "Firestarter" , well worth seeing.

But back to General Fiasco, the thing that amazed me was that every song was instantly listenable. A visit to their myspace page confirmed that and last nights gig emphasised it in spades with a blistering ne opener as well as "old" favourites such as "Ever So Shy" and "Something Sometime" , the new single, which you can get from itunes here . They've recently signed with B-Unique so we should be getting an album by June or July, but as yet we're still waiting, but "Rebel Get By" (on itunes here) and "Something Sometime" are available.
