You wanted the best we got the best…
Tracks by Sticky Boys, The Wanton Bishops & Ragdoll!
We do the digging so you can just Dig It!
STICKY BOYS ‘THE GAME IS OVER’
French rockers Sticky Boys have just released a brand new video for the track ‘The Game Is Over’, taken from the band’s hard-rocking and supremely entertaining album Make Art. If you haven’t checked out the album, it is well worth a listen. Like I said in my review at the time: “Make Art is a reminder of how entertaining it is when a band just rocks the hell out.”
These hairy French guys definitely know their rock and roll, and they know how to have a good time!
THE WANTON BISHOPS ‘SHAKE’, ‘SUN RISING’ & ‘SLEEP WITH THE LIGHTS ON’
Some days, you just feel like you need a triple shot of the good stuff, and this trio of tunes from The Wanton Bishops is very, very good stuff. I just love the bluesy weight to their stripped down tunes, and underneath it all they definitely have a unique pulse and rhythm… after all, not every band plays an oud, right?
Based in Beirut, Lebanon, this band introduces its lineup like this on Facebook:
Nader Mansour (vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboards, banjo, Oud)
Eddy Ghosein/Salim Naffah (guitar, backing vocals, banjo)
and we’ve also got some mercenaries/hired guns preferably called friends who play bass and drums.
Their music is nothing short of addictive, and you can check out their excellent release Sleep With The Lights On for even more of their unique blues-rocking goods.
RAGDOLL ‘BREAK YOU’
If I could pick a house-band for my website, it would definitely be Australian rockers Ragdoll. Every single track from these guys just gets to me: between Leon Todd’s epic guitar-work, Ryan Rafferty’s golden pipes and heavy bass, and Cam Barrett’s drum-perfection, they are a ridiculously great three-piece.
‘Break You’ is taken from the band’s EP All I Want Is Everything. I highly recommend that EP, and the band’s kick-ass release Ragdoll Rewound.
