Since the albums release and numerous rave reviews the band have opened for the likes of the Rolling Stones at their Olympic stadium show in Munich, Headlined the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury and have performed at some of the best and most prestigious festivals across the UK and Europe. Summer has been very much in bloom for Somerset’s finest rock band.
With a reinvigorated line up which sees original Members Gary Stringer (Vocals) and Jack Bessant (Bass) joined by one of the UKs most highly revered drummers Luke Bullen (Bryan Ferry / Joe Strummer / K.T Tunstall) and also being further bolstered by the addition of North Devon virtuoso Guitarist Amy Newton the band have arguably never sounded so good.
In short there is some strange musical alchemy taking place as this is a band very much in the ascendancy . Yes the band have sold in excess of 3 million albums worldwide since forming in 1993 . Yes they have also had 9 UK Top 40 singles and 6 UK Top 40 albums as well as penning arguably one of the biggest rock songs of the 90’s with their Top 10 single Place Your Hands produced by legendary producer George Drakoulias.
That said it is hard not to feel that this is a band destined for even greater and bigger things as anyone that has seen the band recently will attest too. Gary Stringer is on the vocal form of his life and alongside him Jack Bessant’s bulldozer bass riffs have never sounded so good. The spirit of this band is infectious and the new repertoire is certainly getting people talking as Classic Rock Magazine so accurately summarised when talking about their new album “this is lightening in a bottle stuff”.
