VILLIERS AND THE VILLAINS
With their critically acclaimed new LP ‘Music Confounds The Machines’ garnering high praise from BBC Radio Scotland’s Ricky Ross and BBC Radio Ulster’s Ralph McLean, Villiers and The Villains continue their upward spiral with raw and raucous gigs at Electric Picnic, The American Bar, Stendhal Festival, Hilden Beer Fest, Open House and Crumlin Road Gaol. Old school rhythm, rock ‘n’ blues akin to The Band and Bob Dylan with a hint of Little Feat and The Stones, these villains are proving they are ones to watch out for. Catch them live!!
