Wayward Sons - Until The End

WAYWARD SONS is a UK rock act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – LITTLE ANGELS, GUN, SPEAR OF DESTINY, TREASON KINGS and CHROME MOLLY to name a few - which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. WAYWARD SONS sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.

The band is set to release four videos to support single releases. The videos together will make one short film. You can see the first video (for debut single “Until The End”) below.

Toby Jepson had the basis of songs written when the band formed. Together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Jepson treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output.

“I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above... besides, it wasn't a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all,” says Jepson.

The album was produced by WAYWARD SONS (Toby Jepson’s previous credits as a songwriter and producer include the likes of Katie Melua, THE VIRGIN MARYS, THE ANSWER and TOSELAND) and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).

The Grand East - Movano Camerata

Monday, New week, time to introduce "Record of the Week".

This week we have an amazing blues rock album from the Netherlands.

A band that call them self THE GRAND EAST and their debut album "Movano Camerata".

"Movano Camerata" is a pretty varied album, but the basics is classic blues rock and influences that range from psychedelic mysticism from THE DOORS to Southern THE CULT rock, Hill Billy Country and New Orleans Soul to freaking madness of CAPTAIN BEEFHEART. The music is raw with a big heart, the soulful intensity will totally blind you. The album opener "Kiss The Devil" is like a bowling ball, runs with straight focus and big goal true the newly oiled lane before your legs go like ninepins in a strike. "Rabbits & Children" is an beauty, nicely guitar playing with a soulful "Ian Astbury" vocals, at times it dropps it's foothold and flies like a swarm of bees. "Frogs" is a more definite song, with a clear direct vocal character. "Salt Water Love pt 1" is a classic blues stomper. "Troubled Mind" is another tune to the more classic old school blues, where the vocals hymns true the tune, a real beauty. "Water" sounds almost like THE DOORS, really cool tune where the bass lines gets it shine of light. "Dark Man" continues on the path of THE DOORS. "Dreaming" is more back to the blues, a jam with a distinct hammond sound, soulful vocals. "Golden Watch" could been picked from Twin Peaks, great horns that fills out the melody. "Wanna Have Some Fun", hammond, guitars and bluesy drums is the main in this more straight forward tune. The album closes with bluesy folkish "Walk Those Pretty Legs"

The band consists of:

Arthur Akkermans | Vocals
Joris van den Berg | Hammond
Niek Cival | Guitar
Teun Eijsink | Bass
Imanishi Kleinmeulman | Drums

Sum: This is an "Mandatory purchase" if you are into blues rock.

Today's tune "Kiss The Devil" is the first single of the debut album "Movano Camerata". Enjoy!

The Hellacopters - Soulseller

Sunday, time for a real classic.

THE HELLACOPTERS did a live performance at Debaser Strand here in stockholm, for the benefit for their former guitarist Robert ”Strängen” Dahlqvist's daughter Ingrid. "Strängen" who passed away accidentally earlier this year. It was a sensitive and totally mind blowing performance with the band, who really maxed out every little piece of strength in their bodies to make a performance that never should be forgotten.

THE HELLACOPTERS lineup during this evening was Nicke Andersson (guitar), Robert Eriksson (drums), Anders Lindström (Boba Fett) (keyboards), Dregen (guitar) and Sami Yaffa from HANOI ROCKS (bass).

The band and Ingrid in the middle.

Today's tune "Soulseller" is taken from the second album "Payin' the Dues", released October 1, 1997.

This was their last studio album to feature original guitarist Dregen before his departure from the band to focus full-time on his other band BACKYARD BABIES. The album was released simultaneously on both CD and on vinyl; however, "City Slang" was only available on the vinyl edition. The initial pressings were in 2000 units of clear smoke and 2500 units in purple vinyl. Two additional pressings were later available in two different versions of black vinyl. The Toy's Factory release also featured the bonus track "Oh Yeah Alright".

Here is a clip from the show at Debaser, Stockholm 2017.06.22
