Cause an Effect / The Rittz @ The Old Brown Jug, Newcastle 7th October 2009

Review by AFD

Some might say these Wednesday Night events at the Jug have become an asset to live music in Newcastle under Lyme.
The night is run by Joe Thomas and Tom Wood hosting a display of musicians, ranging from different styles and genre, but mainly based around Indie. With that in mind, and the duo, Joe and Tom themselves, playing the decks, you have nearly no excuse to have an early night.

Out of town band, ‘Cause an Effect’ opened Wednesday’s gig with a hard hitting rocktastic set. The four piece played a range of their own material right through to a most surprising mix of The White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army, crossed with Dizzee Rascal’s Bonkers at the end of their performance. Make of it what you will but it was definitely entertaining one way or another to say the least.

Soon after, the four boys from Congleton addressed the audience with brilliantly well thought out riffs and dually given stage presence; of course I’m talking about the sounds of ‘The Rittz’.
At such a young age, Adam (guitar and lead vocals), Sam (guitar and backing vocals), the powerful Matt (Drummer) and Jake (Bass), never fail to impress talent and modesty in their actions. With pumping tunes like: ‘3:42’ to ‘False Apologies’, the sound was blasting, almost spoon-feeding the crowd’s open mouths.

A great night for all involved, and for an audience, great to listen to.
