Following their performance at Hard Rock Hell 13 last weekend, which rocked the place, StoneWire played Islington's Hope & Anchor last night, their album launch for 'Life As We Know It' released earlier this month. With great support from Dead Writers, StoneWire draw from many wells - fusing elements of Classic Rock, Blues and Southern Rock to create a melting pot of addictive melody and biting riffs. Together, frontwoman Sky Hunter's soaring powerhouse Rock vocals and gravely Blues tones and StoneWire's conscious whole-band chemistry and synergy, all give the brew a distinctive tang that has built up their fan following. Sky is complemented by Gaz Annable – guitar, Duncan Greenway – guitar, Steve Briggs - bass and Rob Glasner – drums. The band are also returning to London on Saturday 7th December at The Cavern, but in the meantime, with a review and Photo Gallery to come, check out today's Video Of The Day.
Vambo Monarch's Tonight
"Thank you to our dear friend 'Mother' over at Wrinkly Rockers Club for his super review of 'Vambo'! ''The new offering is a remarkably sophisticated collection of work with unexpected diversity and a huge maturity for a young band. And importantly still has the excitement of a freshman offering. The production is excellent, courtesy of Ray Stiles (Mud/The Hollies), which is evident as the album wends its way through assorted influences.'' That was Vambo's very kind Facebook response to our recent review of their self-titled debut CD here, and the guys are playing a free album launch party in London at Camden's The Monarch tonight supported by Miguel Montalban.
