The Bellrays – Have A Little Faith
I had sadly never heard of this band until I saw them open for The Damned earlier this year. While they seemed an odd choice as an opener for Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible’s aging punky-goth rock (or is that gothy-punk rock?) I was still pretty impressed by The Bellrays with their cool combo of classic rock spiked with funk and sprinkled with soul.
I snagged this CD kind of at random from their catalog. It seems they’ve been around since the mid-’90s and boast 8 full length releases. Have A Little Faith dates from 2006 and while a little more mellow than I expected it to be given their live performance I really like it and intend to seek out more from them.
