Hogjaw Academy Tonight 10/10/18

To support both the release of their latest album 'Way Down Yonder' plus last month's re-issue of 2015's 'Rise To The Mountains', Hogjaw are currently on a UK tour, bringing their own brand of Southern pride and joy to cities the length and breadth of the land. And, accordingly, the rambunctious Southern Rockers stop off at London's O2 Academy Islington tonight. Hogjaw hail from Arizona and describe themselves as "Four fingers folded into a fist!": JB Jones (vocals and guitar), Jimmy Rose (lead guitar), Elvis DD (bass) & Kwall (drums). “Hard-hitting Southern fried electric Rock” is how they define their sound, although their influences are drawn from a deeper well: imagine Free, early Rainbow and Whitesnake, marinaded in Blackfoot and The Allman Brothers, then steeped in moonshine. Solid Southern Blues-Rock. Oh, and beards!
