The first three of these four bands are local. First on is Get Back Colquitt, a band which I have heard being reported as Liverpool's answer to Coldplay. This would not be evident tonight. Mixing blissed out Ibizaeque tracks with overtones of Pete Doherty's band the Libertines, the gathered members of the audience reacted favourably to their genuinely sincere performance. Indeed one member, possibly their manager, is bouncing around the venue's area in front of the stage like a man possessed. Great to see. If i had to say anything about the lead vocalist's voice, it would be that it contains a certain element of Starsailor vocalist James Walsh's tones about it. This is no slight. James Walsh's voice is the best thing about that band. With the last tune from Get Back Colquitt of the night, apparently a new piece of work, they reel off a number so awesome if Le Bateau, the city's best attended and loved indie club got hold of it , there would be a mass stampede to the dance floor. Very well done lads! - Ropewalks Liverpool Blog


I’ve been listening to a fair bit of radio of late being as I’ve been driving alot more than usual. So to help pass the time I’ve loaded my USB media stick with cool shows like Dave Monk’s ‘Introducing‘ highlighting the latest Mersey beat.

On one podcast the show opened with the track ‘Madame (Won’t You Stay?)’, by Get Back Colquitt (a name I might add I spelt wrong a fair few times when trying to google them). But this track stopped me in my tracks, if you can when driving a car so to speak! Especially when the piano kicked in near the end, reminiscent of Coldplay, I thought. Thankfully Dave had them again on his show a few weeks later for an interview and an acoustic session. The four piece band played again the aforementioned track and also the equally superb debut single ‘Collateral‘. After hearing this I then realised I’ve heard possibly the next big thing! They seemed that good with great tunes and riffs and not full of themselves. In fact since then I’ve learnt they’re very approachable, up for the music and keen to learn.

If you don’t believe me then have a listen to the track below (you can download it by clicking on the downward arrow on the right), more are available from Soundcloud or their Facebook page. They are gigging alot in the next few weeks, so why not check them out live yourself. No I’m not their manager, but If I was I’d be a rich man soon I’d guess. - Stevo Music Man Blog

Bio

Get Back Colquitt are an Indie four piece from Liverpool, with more tunes than you can shake a glow stick at. Drunk at a festival, they formed in the fields of T in the Park back in June 2010. With dangerously infectious hooks and beautifully addictive melodies that have the energy of Mona and a nod to Bombay Bicycle Club, and after only a few months of being together the band received airplay on Radio 1. Over the last year they have supported Life In Film, Pete and the Pirates, The Twang and most recently Frankie and the Heartstrings at Liverpool Music Week. Releasing a series of demos for free download over the last 6 months, and building a significant fan base in the North West they are planning an EP release in the Spring. With further support slots with Discopolis, To Kill A King and So Many Wizards 2012 looks like being an extremely exciting year for GBC.
