BEE MICK SEE
What do you do when your parents move you from the hipster mecca that is Portland, Oregon to the urban jungle that is post ceasefire Belfast? If you’re Brendan Seamus, stage name Bee Mick See, you spend the next 10 years trying to forge a career as an eccentric rapper. The Belfast Yank is not only an album that describes the impact of fitting into an unfamiliar society, but also one that merges American and Irish culture in a way that has never been done before. It offers up tales of strained relationships, triumphs over adversity and overcoming the effects of bullying. You may be happy to hear that the stereotypical rap themes of misogyny and over excessiveness are absent in The Belfast Yank. Instead you will be enlightened with the perils of wearing deodorant, a musical explanation of Belfast colloquialisms and an interesting take on “loving” music.
Since moving from the North Antrim Coast to Newcastle Upon Tyne Good Friend have been writing their first album and building their fan base in England's North East and at home bringing their own brand of lion hearted rock and roll to the whiskey soaked table. 2015 has started with a bang for the trio, with some high recommendations coming from some of the major radio stations in UK & Ireland following the 2015 release of 'Iris Goodbyes' The first single released from their debut album. With' Irish Goodbyes', the band have set the precident and the whiskey slinging charmers are only going to get better, as their back catalogue continues to grow. With Carroll’s vision and drive, combined with the raw enthusiasm and technical musical ability of Reid and Connolly, this group of punks are set to build on their influences and bring some home truths back to punk rock.
One of the least worst punk bands in Belfast.
