Tuesday, 15th March saw Music City legends A Thousand Horses deliver London a shot in the arm of some class southern rock. Making their UK tour debut at the C2C Festival held at the O2 Arena, the Nashville quartet bid farewell to their UK fans with a powerful, close quarter set at Camden’s famous Barfly venue.
Fronted by Louis James (son of ex-Moody Blues singer Nicky James), he is ably supported by fireball guitarist Jack Fawdry , solid drumming from Steve Corrigan and what appears to be Justin Hawkins (The Darkness) twin brother in groove laden bass player Aaron Plows. To sum them up easily they could be described as Rival Sons fronted by Robert Plant, such is the strength in James’ vocals. It’s definitely old school, retro fuelled rock ‘n’ roll and the band will certainly make waves in the current music scene given the critics and audiences penchant for this particular style right now.
