MUSICALLY, threesomes do tend to catch my eye.

From an early age I was fascinated by the amount of noise and variety of sound just three people could make, and now many years later local boys Pint Of Mild have added their blend of sound to the ever expanding mix.

They kicked off at Bonsall’s Barley Mow with Teenage Kicks, No More Heroes and an excellent version of Green Day’s Boulevard Of Broken Dreams. Not many bands opt to play this, so for that alone they get a gold star.

Carrying on in the punk vain we had stuff by The Jam and The Clash, then the mood switched to Last Night by The Strokes and the recently-reformed Reef’s Place Your Hands.

Part two reverted back to standard tunes by The Cult and Billy Idol which I’ve heard many times before by many bands, and maybe Pint Of Mild know that, inserting Blur’s Song 2, which I love.

Keeping things together and adding occasional vocals from behind his Mapex drums, Andy kept the groove going nicely with Mike handling guitar duties and strong backing vocals.

Front of house duties went to bassist and vocalist Gary, sporting a bright green tie to reaffirm the band’s punk allegiance.

Even though they’ve only been a working unit for a couple of years, Pint Of Mild are all seasoned musicians and they got the seal of approval from the Bonsall crowd.

They band lean slightly to the past, but I thought they performed a grand show and with their talent showing throughout the entire set, I’m sure they’ll pull me in again in the future.
