If ever there was a band that came across my desk that encapsulated the Texas vibe with everything they did it would have to be SOURMASH. Everything from the bands name, the album name, the album artwork and all the way down to the picture in the centre of the bands promo sheet that features a big-bearded dude screaming down a microphone, this is no-bullshit Texas rock music…
If you were to catch me by surprise and ask me right now who my vote for new band of the year would be, I would have little or no hesitation in telling you RavenEye. The Milton Keynes based blues rock trio are made up of singer and guitarist Oli Brown, drummer Kev Hickman and bassist and Aussie native Aaron Spiers.
If you would have told me in 50 years I would be celebrating The Beatles anniversary and would be playing with three of the four members, I would never believe it.
