  • Tognoni Rob - Birra For Lira (CD)

    18,00
    Originally from Australia, that other Blues master from Down Under, Dave Hole, introduced Rob
    Tognoni ((a.k.a. The Tasmanian Devil) to the rest of the world in 1994. Seventeen albums and forty
    years later Rob’s explosive blend of Classic Rock and Blues, which he plays with invigorating zeal and incomparable attack, is now being compared with the finest work by the great legends of the genre.
    Whilst a mind-blowing guitar player, able to bring on crashing power chords and driving riffs, which he plays with invigorating zeal and unrivaled attack reminiscent of the likes of Jimi Hendrix and AC/DC, there is also a subtle side to Rob’s playing, reflecting broader melodic influences that include B.B. King, and even Tony Joe White.
     
    Besides his fancy fretwork of catchy riffs, crushing chords, and explosive solos, Rob Tognoni possesses something that only few guitarists have; character, and his very own, very unique, instantly recognizable sound and style that stands out from anyone else’s playing. This makes him one of the most exhilarating
    electric guitar players around today, and has established him as one of the few truly electrifying Blues–Rock guitar heroes of the 21st Century.

  • Howlin` Bill - Hungry (CD)

    18,00

    It’s not easy to pin down a band like Howlin’ Bill in a few words it would not do them justice. They mainly perform original songs, with occasionally some carefully chosen covers thrown in the mix for good measure. The Howlin’ Bill recipe is a blend of Blues, Rock ’n’ Roll, Boogie and Rockabilly. This band travels the Blues Highway, but also dares to wander of the beaten path to explore little know back roads, visiting different styles of Rhythm N’ Roots along their journey. There is however always a common denominator present every song on the set list possesses a high dose of hip-shaking content.

    Howlin’ Bill has worked hard to achieve his musical goals; writing, recording and relentlessly playing in every nook and cranny of the Benelux countries. The band released their debut album Cool It in 2003. Exceptionally well received by fans and media alike, it encouraged Bill and his cohorts to record the follow-up, entitled Strike in 2006. In 2009, during a sold-out concert at Belgium’s Temple Of Rock, venue, the Ancienne Belgique, Howlin Bill recorded an electrifying live album. That night, Howlin’ Bill became larger than life, quite a feat considering the man himself stands six feet five tall on bare feet. This live album accurately documented an exhilarating performance of pumping roots-based Blues and Rock, with lyrics about good women gone bad, booze, worn-out shoes, and the trials and tribulations of romantic love in short, the album featured sixteen songs about real life as most people know it. And the band kept on touring: performing no less than three times at the Belgium Rhythm ’N’ Blues Festival in Peer, playing at the Cahors Blues Festival, Terri Thouars Blues Festival, and Blues au Chateau in France, while in Sweden they were welcomed to perform at the Mönsterås Blues Fest, the Norrtälje Blues Fest, the Linköping Jazz & Blues Festival and the Åmål’s Blues Fest. In Germany, Poland and Switzerland, they were respectively billed at the Blues in Lehrte Festival, the Jesien & Bluesem Festival and the Frauenfeld Blues. Howlin Bill was pronounced winner of the 1st European Blues Challenge in Berlin in March 2011 and was subsequently invited to perform at yet more prestigious festivals around Europe, including the Notodden Blues Festival in Norway, the Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland and the Blues sur Seine Festival in France. In celebration of their victory they released the 12 vinyl EP Howl , produced by Kai Strauss. Next came Date With The Devil, released in 2012, an album, once again, lauded by aficionados and critics alike. In 2013, in view of achieving larger sales figures for future albums, Howlin Bill and Blues Boulevard Records decided to collaborate on the release of ’Midnight Hero,’ a two-disc compilation with disc one containing tracks culled from all three previous studio albums, as well as four tracks from the vinyl LP which were previously unreleased on compact disc, and disc two featuring the entire live album recorded at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels. Backed by drummer Daddy T and bass player Walkin Winne, his rock solid rhythm section, and with ace-guitar-player Little Jimmy, who recently re-joined the line-up, Howlin Bill and his bottomless deep voice and howlin harp continue to entertain and razzle-dazzle audiences everywhere. On November 1, 2014, Howlin Bill will perform at the Theadrôme (Heistraat 56, 2610 Wilrijk/ Antwerp, Belgium), celebrating not only his 15th anniversary as an entertainer pur sang, but also the release of Hungry, the brand-new studio album showcasing the artist s unique mixture of Blues, Rock & Roll and Rockabilly. This might just set him up for the next 15 years…or more!

  • Absolution - Dusty Roads (CD)

    18,00

    Absolution (Joe Fawcett Guitars & Vocals – Ben Gardner Bass – Doug Lang Drums & Percussion) formed in May 2010. Now, following healthy sales and critical acclaim for both their debut album, Issues (2012) as well as the follow-up live effort Live From The Front, (2013) along with a fast-growing international fan base, Absolution unleash their third album, Dusty Road. Absolution create a fresh and electrifying sound. If you are in need of comparisons then they are best described as a British Blues Rock power trio, projecting the excitement of a souped-up Cream, and containing trace elements of early ZZ Top with a bit of Joe Bonamassa thrown in for good measure! However, the three musicians from different backgrounds inject sufficient different styles into their music to distinguish them from the pack, not in the least via their quality original songs. Having already shared stage with established Blues acts such as Dr Feelgood, Danny Bryant, Larry Miller, King King; they are headlining arts centres, theatres and clubs and also managed to fit in a storming set at the British Rock & Blues festival in January 2013! The band took home two awards at the 2013 WRC Awards ’Ones To Watch’ and ’Best Guitar Solo’.
