Insanity Beach Live

WE have not visited Southport's best kept live music secret for a long time, but we were persuaded to drop in to the Fox & Goose on Cable Street to take a look at a fantastic band.  Insanity Beach is an inspiring live band, who packed out the bar on Saturday, 12 April 2008.  The band played a full range of rock music and even somehow managed to make a Spice Girls track into a rock track. Yep, lads, we spotted you sneaked it into the set, yet your flyer says:- "Don't wannabe a Spice Girl!".

Personally, I do not often like hearing all covers being banged out by a band, but this band has something different.  As well as good musical talent, they also had a terrific stage presence, backed up by a well oiled group of roadies, who busied around helping the band put on a nearly seamless run of music.  Sadly, I could not stay to the end, but what I did see was a highly talented band, with great discipline and a tremendous drummer and lead guitarist to boot.

Check out their websites at  and also to find out more about this band.  They are one to keep an eye on for sure!   Also check out the bands MySpace page.

One thing I can say for certain... This is not a male equivalent to the Spice Girls. This band rocks!
