Steve Boyd’s Rum Reverie

(CherryBlues)
Steve Boyd's Rum Reverie is a 5 piece blues/soul band. Conceived over many nights of listening to old vinyl records, the project is essentially the brainchild of Paul Fiddes and Steve Boyd. With Paul on drums, Steve on guitar and vocals, as the core group, it is augmented by upright bass and brass. The sound is heartfelt and raw. With New Orleans swagger, a large cup of soul, a spoonful of blues, with hints of jazz trickling through its veins, Steve Boyd's Rum Reverie hoots and hollers with all its might.

Magnetix (France)

w/ The Shabbab, Midnight Woolf, Prehistoric Douche
Plug it in and switch it on, but make sure your circuit breakers are fully operational. MAGNETIX are the ultimate French electro-rock super-hero diode with no other influences we can figure out other than Davie Allen and the Arrows starting static with Cramps in a sound clash live from Pluto (far out, dig?). Bringing a full-on sex beat that throbs with a creepy, fuzzed out sludge, grinding through your cranium like a rusty antenna, cross the Magnetix and deal with death. Their ping-pong stereo vibrates wildly with a multichromatic display of analog effects meant to make your retinas shimmer and your ass wiggle. - Slovenly Records
