Once described as "The Baron Knights on acid", JERUSALEM HARPOON (better known as THE MIGHTY POONS) play a classic assortment of tunes from The “Whistle Test” years
A 5 piece rock band featuring some of the finest musicians in thewhole world....well, maybe not the world, but certainly Scotland. Jerusalem Harpoon, or The Poons, as they have become to be known, was formed in 2005 by Rupert Black, who was the keyboard player with such well known bands as The Pretenders, Talk Talk, The Alarm, and David Bell, the singer from Big Vern ‘n’ the Shootahs.
The idea was to create a band that would allow them to indulge their fantasy of playing their favourite rock songs from the Old Grey Whistle Test years. For those not familiar with TOGWT, it was a 70’s version of Later with Jools Holland, featuring live performances from bands like Led Zeppelin, Focus, The Who, Little Feat, Fanny etc. So, plundering the musical talent around Glasgow, they found 3 other likeminded musicians, forming a package that perfectly delivers a powerful mix of rock music from the 70’s and 80’s, covering everything from Jethro Tull, Clapton, Genesis via Ricky Lee Jones and Manfred Mann’s Earthband, too, IT BITES!
If you like your rock to be of the classic variety, the musicianship to be of the top quality, and a band that tends not to take itself too seriously, then a night of top tunes from The Old Grey Whistle Test years with Jerusalem Harpoon is an absolute and total MUST!
