Bucket's Half Moon 29/5/19


"After the excellent opener ‘Animal Beat’ and the radio-friendly hook of the title track, ‘Rebel Heart’ sees Stapley mining a higher register (more akin to the sound of Foreigner perhaps) and we do get treated to a Marriott after all! On this track and the next pair, ‘The Bridge’ and ‘Whiskeyland’ (the latter of which features lead guitar by Ross McEwen), the strong backing vocals are provided by Steve’s daughter Mollie, whose contributions are instantly recognisable, even at this early stage in her career. ‘Rebel Heart’ and ‘The Bridge’ also feature some nice piano work by Richard Young." That was part of our take on Dave “Bucket” Colwell's latest CD '20 Good Summers' (Video Of The Day) and Bucket & Co are heading off on a six date UK tour at the end of June, supported by Collateral, that culminates on Thursday 4th July at London's Half Moon in Putney.
