A band of brothers that go back many years, the Long Pours delivers flavours of Grunge, Country and Americana!
Bristol band The Long Pours are rapidly making a name for themselves on the local music scene and, judging by the large crowd at the Louisiana on Friday night, most of whom had clearly seen them before, they are developing quite a following.
Lead singer Ben Fernihough is also a talented songwriter, recently getting to the semi-final of the UK Songwriters Competition with two songs, Ten Feet Tall and While You Wake. Ben has been gigging around Bristol with his mate Jason for some time and they put the band together less than 12 months ago.
Kicking off the show with Let Some Air In The Long Pours were on fire from the start, a cracking number with a chorus that just raced away.
The audience were now already lapping it up and the band showed their versatility with the reggae-inspired Fire. With Mark and Jason on guitar, backed up by Guy on drums and Joe on bass, the lads are nicely balanced and clearly comfortable with each other, interacting nicely with the crowd and really putting on a show.
BRISTOL EVENING POST MARCH 2015
PILOT WHALE RESEARCH: A Bristol band that play quiet songs quite loud and quite loud songs quite quiet. They have beards and glasses and they’re fond of molasses. With their guitars and their voices and unparalleled choices of headwear and jeans and sewing machines they are Bristols finest sonic melancholists.
