Regal hail from Lyon, France and were formed from the embers of the less than pleasently named Last Rapes of Mr Teach, and current members of Le Pêcheur ”“ this four piece 60’s garage infused outfit fronted by Caelan O’Flaherty, who in a nod to his Irish heritage has brought with him a folk element. Combine this with the bands declared love of all things Back From The Grave and Garage Punk Unknowns plus overdosing on Black Lips ”“ result, a heady psychedelic Seeds infused wig out !!

With their first album ”ËœPossible Endings’ having just been jointly released by Brussells based Frantic City Records and Frances AzBin Records ”“ vinyl only ; hey this lot love the 60’s !!

Regal have just begun a pan European tour ”“ sadly no dates in the UK are scheduled ; however once the tour concludes Regal are upping sticks and relocating to the UK.

New band of the day: Regal

‘Possible Endings’ is full of trashy bouncy garage pop gems, the vocals (in English) are delivered straight from the bar ”“ shot through with cheap whiskey, add to this a deep understanding of the importance of a decent melody or two, and you end up with a rabble rousing after hours lock in ”“ you can just imagine the patrons shimmying to the fuzzed out guitars!!.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
