The Skullers is a US rock ‘n’ roll trio.

The Skullers

Their first recorded track Can We Do That Again was released earlier in the month and is available on bandcamp.

A blend of blues, dance and solid rock enables The Skullers, in Can We Do That Again, to deliver a track that has both a beguiling raggedy edged gruffness to it and a thundering beat that has the listener refreshing themselves on how to skiffle whilst searching for a pair of blue brothel creepers.

Word arrives of an EP arriving sometime in September and will be a release, judging by this, that will warm up the autumn days for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

Stand up, clear some space and only then hit play…

Although recorded quite a while ago, it was only very recently that a live performance of Quicksand came to light and always a pleasure it is too to return to their music.

Shambolics – Love Collides – Single Review

The Scottish rock ‘n’ roll band Shambolics are due to release the single Love Collides next month.

Shambolics - Love Collides

Shambolics

The clarity of delivery gives Shambolics a snappy beat that the moment the sounds flow in to the room the listener finds themselves joining in with the joy of it all.

First looked at back in August of least year; in Love Collides, Shambolics, deliver similar zestiness that covers the listener in a refreshing tangy sharpness though have, in the three minutes and fifty seconds of the song, marginally softened the sound giving the piece a more rounded moulding within which they find themselves space to add a subtlety from which they are able to deliver a track layered in textures.

I was enthusiastic when they were first featured I am even more enamoured now and do suggest keeping an ear out for Shambolics: A band, if there is any justice in the music industry, you will hear much more of them in the near future.

There is a gritty earthiness to the roughly ten minutes release that takes the mind to a run-down outback bar with split floorboards, broken stools and a floor strewn with sawdust to blunt the splinters, yet the audience would be hard pressed to find a more comfortable spot in which spend time.

The opener and title track of the single (available on bandcamp) has boots immediately tapping along with the classic sounds of rock ‘n’ roll.

Alfie Jack - acoustic rock 'n' roll from England

Alfie Jack

In the tradition of British Pub bands Alfie Jack take the barest of instrumental bones and turn the evening into a lively session of story-telling to dance and chant to along with a pint or two to hand. Formed a couple of years ago the duo they have secured a local engagement and have begun to strike out further afield with live performances and are set to take their infectious joie de vivre across global boundaries with the recent release of their début single Captain.

The music works due entirely to its ability to grab hold of the listener and get them into good time mood and Alfie Jack have that self-assured swagger, that doesn’t stray into cockiness, which makes the audience immediately want to be on their side.

Threading through the back catalogue of the past couple of years is journey that raises a smile and worth investing the time doing. Their début is very much part of the development story and a fine starting point in securing a wider fan-base.

It will be interesting to catch up with Alfie Jack in a year or so and hopefully the fresh buoyancy will remain as it stands today.
