New music from The Jigantics!

Childish Things (single) 400Released on Friday 8 October

The Jigantics are a band from the UK who have previously released three critically acclaimed albums here on Rawtone Records. They are now a four-piece unit with founder members Mark Cole and Martin Fitzgibbon being joined by Sarah Kelly on vocals and bass, plus master guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Keith Thompson. Throughout Europe this band enjoy rave reviews for their live performances and consequently decided to record an album the “old fashioned“ way with all the band members playing in the same room at the same time. Effectively a live album to replicate that live gig feel. Sadly, the pandemic put an end to that plan until a couple of months ago at a studio in remotest Wales where over a long weekend the band finally recorded the tracks for their forthcoming fourth album Childish Things due to be released in early 2022.

The title track Childish Things has been released as a single and accurately reflects The Jigantics unique eclectic sound. A blend of musical influences melded into something that defies cliched categorisation. Sarah Kelly’s brilliant vocal talents are shown here to the full, underpinned by great guitar work from Keith and Mark, as The Jigantics rock, folk, country and roll their way through a track that is both memorable and addictive to the ears. Great riffs, a hooky chorus, punchy guitar breaks and a great groove, all prove to be irresistible. A glittering track from a band at the top of their game.

"Fantastic music... The Jigantics were a highlight act"
The Daily Telegraph

"What an amazing band! The Jigantics were fantastic. No wonder the place was packed out. What an absolutely brilliant masterclass in entertainment. The whole gambit of musical styles in a one stop shop. Witty, skilfull and up for a laugh, the Jigantics deserve every success in the future."
Derry, Woodman Folk Club

"The Jigantics were brilliant. A refreshing and varied blend of uptempo songs and beautifully arranged ballads. Great instrumentation from very talented musicians delivered by a band who had presence. They worked hard to build a strong rapport with the audience. The result; a really enjoyable night with people feeling uplifted having been part of something quite special."
David Francis - Nailsea Folk Club

"The Jigantics brand of Cajun-kissed folk rockery turned out to be the perfect complement (!!), easing us into a high quality selection of songs ranging from the not-a-dry-eye-in-the-house tear jerker, to the Doc-Martins-to-the-floor outlaw country floor shaker."
