Ralph's always got his ear to the ground for new music as that's the best place to find some down and dirty tunes so finding Glasgow band Tijuana Bibles on Twitter was a result as they fit the bill nicely. Having played their track 'Wild River' on the Radio KC Indie Show recently I'm pleased to be able to announce the release of 'Toledo' this month and it ticks the aforementioned down and dirty boxes nicely as its thumping bass and grinding guitar batters in to a raucous vocal. I'm not supposed to have favourites but they're just possibly my new 'most listened to' band this month and definitely one to catch live.
Wild River by tijuanabibles
Tijuana Bibles are - Tony Costello (vocals/guitar), Behn Cross (bass), James Brannigan (guitar) and Mikey Dornan (drums) and in their words - "have come bouncing out of the traps with the debut EP ‘Wild River’ which was released to critical acclaim last year. 2014 so far has seen the band return to headline King Tuts as part of New Years Revolution and sell out the infamous venue.
Tijuana Bibles have been nominated as "best newcomer" at this years Scottish AlternativeMusic Awards and, having played a number of Scottish dates in March with more in April plus May seeing them take in their first UK tour as well as a host of festival appearances to be announced soon, it's looking like a stellar year for the band.
