The Horn and Trumpet - 21.09.09

One of the quirkiest but most entertaining outfits doing the rounds at the moment is the off-beat rockers Marina Del Ray, who I caught at the regular Black Sheep club night at the Horn And Trumpet in Worcester.

This, surprisingly, was a little more of a subdued set from this foursome - contrasting with the Worcester Music Festival format, which was almost pure stand-up in places - especially when shamelessly promoting the Marina Del Ray approved range of tacky merchandise!

Don't be fooled, though, this outfit has original quality in bucket loads and a trademark standout number with the tongue-in-cheek Company Car.

Bands who combine great music with a bit of humour between numbers aren't exactly two-a-penny, so it's great to find another one to step up to the spot vacated by the likes of the much-lamented And What Will Be Left Of Them? and the legendary 36 Stone.
