Classic Grand Review


With revellers heading to the SECC to take in the Homecoming Show, the Classic Grand venue offered a suitable alternative in the form of emerging Motherwell five-piece The LaFontaines.

The enthusiastic group purvey hip-rock dipped in tartan paint, in keeping with the recent revival of the colloquial accent in music, and their native twist on a distinctly American concept has spliced an of-the-moment genre with conventional bar chords and catchy choruses.

They have been on the periphery of the much-coveted industry radar for a while now without ever being appropriately heralded, but interest continues to grow, and Saturday evening represented a headline show in a well-respected setting.

Peter Dickson (The X Factor Voice Bloke to you and me) booms his message of endorsement, and they arrive onstage to a rapturous reception from a healthy audience. Vocalist Kerr Okan is the focal point of their musical onslaught, and he comfortably cements a rapport with the crowd as they surge through a blistering set.

Okan, sporting a blinding yellow t-shirt, verbalises his contempt for contemporary life and is utterly believable as he spouts his candid views. Kudos is immeasurably added, however, in the accessibility of the songs; the remaining quartet ably builds songs around his tirades, ensuring that that they could be streamlined into the popular consciousness with relative ease.

‘Superstar’ and ‘Vulcan’ are particular standouts, but the performance and outlook in general is impressive – it would be easy for this Frankenstein approach to music to be sodden in familiar clich├ęs, however it sounds fresh and inviting while maintaining a razor sharp edge.

‘Rap is just for people who can’t sing’ cries Okan, but it is the only self-deprecating lyric in what is a hugely confident show.

BO!

Yo and welcome to our very first blog(sorta).

Tbh we have always been rather gash at these sort of things, but with so much going on over the last few months to present day, we sort of owe it to you to keep you in the loop!

These blogs will be updated on a weekly basis, or as and when new shit happens! They will have exclusive pics, videos and anything random enough to find its way in. We recently purchased a digital cam, because in all honesty wayyyy to much funny shit happens when we hit the road! So would be cool for you guys to see it and comment on the crack. I will also be hopefully starting to interview random bands, acts people we play with, so please if you have any inappropriate questions make sure you send them in cause that’s the idea!

We will try and make this as active as possible, sort of like a forum I suppose only without all the shite that comes with that.

***
Coming up we have a mini Scottish tour, starting in: Ayr 5th Aberdeen, 6th, Stirling 7th (early doors) and Edinburgh at night. If your free come down, would be good to kick it!

***
We have a brand new track we will post on the myspaz which is defoo on some cool different shit, I even rap in 7/8!!!!! TELL ME WHO THE FUCK RAPS IN 7/8???????? I am trying to claim the crown for only rapper to do so, so please correct me if I’m wrong before I make my announcement!

***

There will be a video for Rap boy up this week- Thanks to Stu and his Shootback production team for that again!!!


Anyway we will keep in touch, hope your into it!
Cheers Kerr & The LaFontaines
