The IORR Band @ The Hope & Anchor

June 25, 2022

Islington 25.06.22

(review written for Record Collector magazine)

Four years since they last played here the IORR Band stormed a packed Hope & Anchor with a brilliant selection of well-known and less well known Stones covers. The band formed via the famous iorr.org Stones fan website and come from as far afield as Norway and Chile. They only meet the night before a Stones gig. They never rehearse but are such great musicians that gigs like this seem to happen instinctively. A twenty song set took in some rarely played material like The Spider And The Fly, Sway and Parachute Woman.  Bluzdude enlivened Little Queenie and the closing Stop Breakin’ Down was a triumph. So take a bow DandelionPowerMan Mathjis, Mr_dja, IrwinH and 71tele plus guests djgab (mandolin) and WildSlivovic (harmonica). And a shout-out to a great audience: ManOfWealthOfTasteSilverDaggerSomeTorontoGirl, Beast and many others.
