A find traces from King’s X (‘Beyond This Glass’) but also from power proggers like US-based Tiles (‘Between Sounds And Noises’) and Belgian outfit Ken’s Novel (‘Stealing’). Probably bands that both the band itself as many readers/listeners here never heard of so I can recommend them here as well haha.
A rescheduled show due to guitar player Jeremy Brown’s passing, meant that fans who had been expecting to see the band live back in April were chomping at the bit by the time Scott Weiland & Co. returned to the UK. The passing of a band mate is never easy and oftens results in the band splintering before finally dissolving. Not so Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts. Whilst Weiland has always got other ‘projects’ on the go, this band / incarnation does seem to have some staying power and a sold out Garage in London’s Highbury and Islington district suggests the fans are still eager to see what the man can deliver.
For those of you not yet accustomed to the delights of Vintage Trouble, I’m sorry to say for the past four years you’ve been missing out on something monumentally unique. The best way to describe the band, well, imagine James Brown fronting Led Zeppelin, or better still, Sam Cooke belting out Rolling Stones classics – got the picture?
