Tequila Mockingbyrd Release Brand New Track

Tequila Mockingbyrd release brand new track ‘Drunk When I Told Ya’,
a sea-shanty-esque festive banger all about the perils of drunk-dialling

Tequila Mockingbyrd have had a whirlwind of a year joining forces with Gill Montgomery (The Amorettes) and Laurie Buchanan (Aaron Buchanan and the Cult Classics) and what better way to wrap up this perfect storm than with a sea-shanty that captures the perils of drunk-dialling. Let’s face it… We can all relate to that!

Drummer Josie O’Toole says “Who hasn’t had a few too many Eggnogs at this time of year and made a few wayward calls?! It’s a fun song that I actually wrote many moons ago, before the band even started. It seemed fitting now that this epic year is coming to an end that we put it out as a thank you to everyone for all of their support of all things Tequila over the years, at the same time raising a glass to the kick ass musicians who made it possible for the band to stay on the road in 2019. We hope you dig it.”

The track features a special guest performance from Jimi Hocking (The Screaming Jets) on mandolin and is accompanied by a fun lyric video made with footage from the recent Hard Rock Hell Awards. It is the band’s final release before taking a break to focus on a new venture in conjunction with Gill Montgomery and Laurie Buchanan.

Stand by for more news on that in 2020…

For now, thank you, good luck and good bye!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
