The Teaner Terners: May 14, 2011

The Teaner Terners

Saturday night at Sharky Bar saw the launch of the new Teaner Terners EP 'Is It Just Me?' (Vol. 1).

A packed audiance were in attendance to support the 'cd release' which also coincided with the bands 1st Anniversary.

From the opening instrumental number 'In 3's' - The Teaner Terners were on fire as they lit-up the bar with their own eclectic brand of new wave indie rock!

With Scotty sporting his new-look Billy Idol rinse and large Elvis Costello glasses - the front-man was in fine form, as he blazed out the vocals on the next song - a cover of the Artic Monkeys song 'San Francisco.' Brilliant!

From then on 'The Teaner Terners' pushed on relentlessly and included a number of new original songs such as 'Should've Told Him', Traffic Light' and the excellent 'The Man From The Government.'

The 'first set' was almost up, but not before they played homage to Cambodia's very own Dengue Fever by playing 'Tiger Phone Card' - as well as including a haunting version of 'Goodbye Horses' (otherwise better known as the 'theme tune' from 'The Silence Of The Lambs'). Magic !

After a short-break, Scotty, Jimmy, Lance and Nick really 'turned up the heat' in the second set - and the packed Sharky crowd were fully engaged as the TT's ratched up the tempo - not to mention the volume !

Probably their best two songs 'Typhoid' and 'A Dark Art' were sandwiched in between other great TT originals such as 'Analogue (80's)' , 'Wasted' and the humerous 'Stephen Hawking' with Lance on fine backing vocals.

An encore beckoned and 'The Teaner Terners' duly obliged with a rousing climatic version of 'Busking' - another fine TT song!

The band left the stage to a noisy Sharky Bar ovation - and with the gig being filmed 'professionally' courtesy of Ingo (Steady Cam Productions) - the video will no doubt be a suitable record (dare i say collector's item) of a truly great indie-rock night out!

A big thank you to 'The Teaner Terners' for a really enjoyable show - and all of us at Sharky's wish you the very best of luck with your newly released 'cd' !!!

Rock on fellaz!

  3. I think I have already heard one of the songs there. I just forgot how it's sung. I hope you give us the soundtrack.
