A short but sweet one for you to discover today…
We are from Liverpool, a city with a glorious musical heritage.
How did you meet?
Tom (lead guitar/vocals) was at music college with Lowell (guitar/vocals) who brought his brother Chris (bass/vocals) to the party and Jay was stolen from another local band.
How long have you been playing as a band?
This line-up has been together about a year.
Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?
The band name comes from the Elvis Costello song on the This Year’s Model album.
What are your influences?
Blues, proper r’n’b from the likes of Chess Records, rock ‘n’ roll and bands like the MC5, Humble Pie, Led Zeppelin and The Hives.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
Fast, loud rock ‘n’ roll, except when it isn’t!
Do you have any particular lyrical themes?
Fast women and slow horses.
What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?
We’ve been gigging constantly since last Spring with shows all over England and two tours of France. Our shows are hot and sweaty with loads of energy. It’s fuzzy and loud. Expect the odd bit of leather.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
We caused a riot at a festival in France last Summer, ending with a mass stage invasion.
What kit do you use / guitars do you play / etc.?
We are supported by Blackstar amps and the lead guitar is a Gibson Les Paul with Peter Green reversed pick-ups. Rhythm and bass guitars are Fenders.
What are your plans for 2019?
We recorded our debut album late last year at the Motor Museum studios in Liverpool with Al Groves producing. Al has worked extensively with Bring Me The Horizon. The first single from the album is out now with the album itself out in May. We’ve already got a couple of dates booked; 93 Feet East in London on 19th April and EBGBs in Liverpool on the 20th. We play a big festival in France on 1st June and we are planning a tour around that. We are already planning the second album with ten new songs written and we hope to record it in September back in the Motor Museum which is a great studio.
If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
The Gear (a young Liverpool band who play their rock n roll fast and loud)
