If you live on Wearside then you might be familiar with the name Louie Louie, if only because it’s the all you can eat buffet restaurant that inhabits the building across the road from defunct department store Joplings. On a more general musical note, you might also have thought of the song by The Kingsmen or Toots and the Maytals when hearing the name. If you thought of any of these things, then unfortunately you’re a bit off the mark, and probably a bit hungry. Louie Louie happen to be a brand spanking new half British, half Portiguese rock’n’roll outfit that have been turning heads on recent support slots with the likes of the Courteeners. On the surface they might seen like just another indie band attempting to do anthemics and rollicking choruses, but with the injection of frontwoman Rita Faria’s womanly touch, there’s something more distinctive and intriguing about Louie Louie that’ll leave you wanting more.

The Manchester-based bunch will be joined on the night by Teesside natives and lovers of soaring rock Sons of the City, whose recent releases have slowly been helping the band to gain some notoriety on the live circuit. It’s a night that’s far from reggae and buffets, but one that you’ll still want to feast on.

Louie Louie play at Ku Bar, Stockton on Friday 31st July.
