Declan Welsh & The Decadent West – MCR
11th November 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm£8
Declan Welsh & The Decadent West plus guests
Declan Welsh and his troubadour gang have recently performed at the Labour For Socialism event ‘Concert For Corbyn’ in Glasgow, and played in Palestine with an orchestra of child refugees, which gives you an idea of just how committed the young Glaswegian is to effecting change in the world he sees. Described by some as a modern amalgamation of Joe Strummer and Billy Bragg, Welsh certainly isn’t timid in challenging the political status quo himself.
Fortunately, he’s also got the songs to back it up. Recent tracks like ‘Nazi Boys’ and ‘Shiny Toys’ exhibit an indie rock band already reaching for stadium anthems, while ‘Useless’ showcases an emotional ballast to back it all up. Whether Welsh can change the world remains to be seen, but as a dynamic and ambitious songwriter, he’s throwing everything into it right now.
