    THE GARCIAS
    Revolution, Sunday 28th May, 2006

    Something is stirring in the Granite City.

    For a few years now, the local music scene has been quiet, with only a few bands making an impression. That appears to be set to change, and leading the charge are these young upstarts.

    The name may be Spanish, the band may be Scottish, but their vision is out of this world. “Extra-terrestrial blues rock”, their website states, but their sound can be summed up in just one word. FUN!

    They hit the ground running with “Like You Want It Too”, and the tempo for the evening is set. It’s fast and frantic, the set broken up by charismatic singer Chris Ross’ entertaining asides – presumably to allow him a breather, given the energy he’s expending during the songs.

    “Brightest Star” slows things down, before the band move up a gear for the second half of their set with “Give It Up And Live A Little”, a sixties-style pop number reminiscent of Eddie Cochrane.
