One more reason I think I need to split my time between NYC and London…
I bitch a lot about social media. Let’s just say I think it’s more of a Millennial’s thing than a GenXr’s (most of my age bracket uses it constantly, and bitches about it constantly) BUT sometimes, something happens (thanks to Twitter or Facebook or whatever socialavenue you favor), and you actually find yourself…dare I say –grateful.
Yesterday was one of those “something” events. I saw a guy with the last name “Ackroyd” followed me. As a fan of the “Blues Brothers” (starring one of my favorites, Dan Ackroyd) (I know every line), I had to investigate. Turns out Mr. Ackroyd is actually an adorable blond “kid” (compared to me, he is) from the UK, Andy Ackroyd, who happens to be the drummer of a band called, you got it, “Amongst Thieves”.
Thank you, Twitter — you’re the impetus for me discovering yet another great band out of the UK. I played a song called “Alone”, immediately called my metal musician fiance, John and said “check this band out…”
He loved them. I love them. And now, with the help of this social avenue BlondeAndCrossbones.com and all it’s social media affiliates, I hope you love them too! Here’s a song I played about twenty times in row: “Hate Again”, taken from their self-titled album (avail on iTunes, Spotify, etc).
Let’s get these guys some US attention, B&C’ers.
