I love Male Bonding!  The British rockers are back!  Male Bonding (formerly a trio and now a quintet) celebrated the release of their new album “Endless Now” by playing at New York’s Mercury Lounge on August 29, 2011.  The show began at 10 pm with an opening set from Texas pop/rockers Love Inks.  Male Bonding hit the stage at 11 pm and didn’t stop rockin’ all night long!  Their songs are typically short and sweet but also fast and furious.  Lead singer John Arthur Webb kicks ass on guitar and lead vocals.

Drummer Robin Christian is just a killer on the drums.  He can play really fast and knows how to get the crowd dancing and thrashing about.  Kevin Hendrick looks a bit like Kurt Cobain with his hair in his face, and like Kurt, Kevin rocks it out.

Since the last time Male Bonding were in New York, they’ve gained a new member – Nathan Hewitt.  Like his band members, Nathan is great too!  The band played a mixture of songs from their debut album “Nothing Hurts” including “T.U.F.F.,” “Franklin,” and “Weird Feelings.”  From their new album “Endless Now,” they played “Tame the Sun,” “Carrying,” “Seems T o Notice” and their latest single “Bones.”  The show was great and I recommend you check out their music if you need a little infusion of garage rock and roll in your life.

Prior to The Drums triumphant homecoming show at Webster Hall in New York on October 20, 2010, I met the band!  They were all so cool as you can see from these photos that their friends took.  I talked to lead singer Jonathan Pierce for a bit and we chatted about our favorite places in New York.  He told me the name of his favorite Mexican restaurant, but sorry ladies and stalkers, I forgot the name of it!  It’s unfortunate that I didn’t get to see the guys after the show to tell them how awesome they were live, but I am saying it now!  Thanks again lads and I am looking forward to hearing lots of great stuff to come!
