In a pub far far away, in the center of Birkenhead lied Gallagher’s Bar where Jo Mary and Queen Zee and The Sasstones orchestrated a noise so refined that the human ear could not handle, with their head attached or their clothes on.

As seen at the itsLiverpool stage at Liverpool International Music Festival, Jo Mary continued their stead of rebellious haste showcasing their double single Chewed Up / Spat Out.

The double single boasts the bands talent to make their effortlessly cool rock sound enough to make your younger sibling drop the techno and rob your arl fella’s Dr Martens.

We spoke to Jo Mary at this year’s LIMF, and were promised ball bags in the near future, alas, the lads managed to keep their bags elsewhere. There must have been a secret 5p charge we were unaware about.

The lads have now got their latest singles on Spotify so do give them a listen!

Proceeded by royalty, Queen Zee and The Sasstones – the latest leaders of fun, freedom and a fantastic ass. Opening their set with their rendition of Electric Six’s Gay Bar; sent the crowd to an immediate naked frenzy.

Queen Zee’s powerful vocal ability and commanding stage presence to make the crowd feel like they had been knighted and recruited in her army of succession.

After watching the band’s latest music video Boy, it’s very evident that they are not messing about. The band have also been announced that they played the Introducing Stage at Leeds/Reading Festival over the August bank holiday.

We caught up with Zee herself to have a quick chat about what’s to come.

PR: Amazing gig! Gallagher’s is a brilliant venue, what did you love the most about performing tonight?

Zee: Well it was a sell out! And my first time playing in my hometown, so I’m very happy the support showed up. There’s not really a lot like us on Wirral, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t interested, so hopefully this is start of more regularly noisey gigs.

PR: When were you crowned Queen? And if you were Queen, what type of laws would you set?

Zee: I was born a Queen! But my coronation was at Drop the Dumbulls on March 5th 2016. I’d free the weed, ban the Sun, and make open up the palace to any refugees who needed it.

PR: I can see that you are performing at Leeds/Reading festival that must be very exciting! How did that come about and what are you looking forward to performing?

Zee: Yeah I’m excited, it’s through BBC introducing Merseyside, they picked us after we did a live session earlier in the year on their network, and I guess they were impressed. I’d defo recommend any bands out there getting your music on the BBC Introducing Uploader.

PR: How would describe your sound in three words?

Zee: Post Break-Up Soundtrack

PR: Aside from Leeds/Reading do you have anything exciting coming up for us to keep an eye for?

Zee: Our debut EP Eat My Sass, drops on 22nd September, with a launch show on 23rd at Sound in Liverpool. Other than that we’ve just got a huge run of shows till the end of the year!

Show your support for a local band with their latest tracks on Youtube/Spotify who will not disappoint!
