Here's a bunch of local lads that are absolutely on fire at the moment, Jimmy Bullet and the Baby Shakers. They rocked the Riverside and now they have their sights set on lighting up SPEAR.

Jimmy Bullet and the Baby Shakers really rocked the Riverside when they played recently before the Cardiff City game. I’d never seen them before but lived the riffs that sounded straight out of 60s Detroit, Stooges and MC5. It was grungy, it was raw, it was exciting. Just the sort of stuff to warm you up on a cold December afternoon.


“We’re raw and loud, with no frills.” They proclaim. “Better to be loose and original than tight and average.” Yes I would agree with that.


The Jimmy Bullet lads were raved about by Andrew Pain in the Gazette Sounds pages, he marked them out as in his top ten tips for last year’s Middlesbrough Music Live. They are every inch a live band pouring themselves into the performance.


Angie from Riverside Rock promoters kindly provided us with a couple of video clips of the band playing in the West Stand car Park.


Maybe it will influence you in the big vote for best Riverside Rocks band currently being held on the Poll at


You catch Jimmy Bullet live at the next SPEAR gig at Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt on Friday 29th January which as in all SPEAR events is absolutely FREE!


The band are playing further a field at the Angel, Durham on 25th Feb and in York on 27th Feb.
