The United Stoats of America – Hastings Fat Tuesday 2018
Bringing a smile to even the most jaded of souls, The United Stoats of America had Hastings Fat Tuesday revellers wrapped around their little fingers.
The Stoats know that tunes by Mary Hopkins, Atomic Kitten, U2, Roberta Flack and Queen are really only rollicking hillbilly tunes ruined by being played with the wrong instruments and that artists like Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves and Hank Williams had some good ideas for songs, but didn’t really finish ’em off. The Stoats take the essence of bluegrass, rockabilly & skiffle and add some rock solid drumming and transform other people songs into something totally unique.
