The Irascibles are a three-piece ‘bluesabilly’ beat combo from Cardiff. The unique ‘bluesabilly’ sound is a heady mix of delta blues, post-punk, rockabilly and British beat, with a few African grooves thrown in. It was discovered by the three men whilst working away in a potting shed and after some time in germination the seeds of success are sown and it rocks like crazy ! Their songs Gasoline, Icarus Rising, Couples on Drugs depict a life of an urban delta blues man in a small welsh town. The Irascibles have always longed for the glamour of the 50’s British rand b and beat scene and dream of bringing the fag end of rock-n-roll into your homes and concert halls.?
Legendary bassist Phil Moxham of Cardiff heart throbs Young Marble Giants and drummer and fellow giant Drew Moxham (once a Howling Sleeper), join forces ex Clementine Nick Lewis ? guitar and vocals, and together they create something unmissable!?
Since forming in 2008, The Irascibles are quickly garnering a following in Cardiff, have had some rave reviews and a lot of air play on BBC Radio Wales and Nation Radio .They are currently recording a soon-to-be-unleashed CD of hot potatoes!
