April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchSpring sunshine warming  Cardiff pavements, but not as hot as The Globe scorching from the two rock n roll sets from rising British Bands 2017 Planet Rock Roadstars show; Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch. First up in a lava flow of Rock from the red hot Birmingham band Broken Witt Rebels. Many bands would leave the crowd-pleasing signature number that Low, from the acclaimed EP Georgia Pine, has become. BUT, not the rebels this is the opening track they are opening on a high. High flowing rock that rolls around The Globe the crowd are jumping with delight they want more and more of Danny’s power blazing vocals, they are howling so the next number is perfect for the atmosphere created on a Sunday night, live music that Is Howlin’ good.  Broken Witt Rebels are tight, they are having a great time playing the music we want to hear. This is a band that will rise to the top as the music is hot, tasty and created by a volcanic amalgam of music that shaped the seventies into a creative free form delight of classic rock infused with soul and whisky flaming southern riffs.  The beating, pulsing heart of the Rebels is front man Danny Core, his vocals and stage artfulness catapult the band to the top of the rock face of young bands with ambition.  He makes every song distinctive, the phrasing shaping the lyrics and the rebels behind him provide him with a trampoline that bounces with musicianship that sparks with attitude and flair. The drumming is energetic full of dramatic beats and cooled with phrasing and cymbal work from James Dudley whose sticks rise high and create the percussive tone for every song. Adding to the rhythApril Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad Touchm is the bass work from Luke Davis whose deep notes give us tone that takes us deep into the crater of joy that is the BWR music. Up front and on lead guitar giving Danny structure and his own delicious lead breaks, riffs and the hooks for Danny’s rhythm guitar as he described his playing ‘I am just a chord monkey’, James Tranter is the guitar wizard. At times through the set Danny sinks to the floor kneeling full of emotion, this is not in praying but in victory as the songs leap from a title on a set sheet into full blazing live glory. There is another chilled side as Turn Me On demonstrated that new songs are being added to a catalogue that has depth and that makes a live band great. Closing out the brilliant sparkling volcanic rocking set was Guns, we all know this from radio play and the number of times they have played the back catalogue.  The encore was Shake Me Down, Danny and the boys definitely gave everyone a demonstration of a rock n rolling shake down that made Sunday night fizz.

April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchShort break and many of the crowd took time out to chat with the Rebels and buy some merchandise to take home. The Globe was on musical fire as the red lights reflected back the heat of energy generated by live music.  With a young band from deepest Norfolk, there was nothing flat about the Southern rock infused quintet Bad Touch. The only task they had was following on from the dynamic crowd-pleasing Broken Witt Rebels to ensure the audience’s energy didn’t wane. Did they achieve this, Yes they did! How, Truth Be Told a mix of showcasing their latest album and the combination of front man vocalist and tambourine man Stevie Westwood, and a trailblazing secret, well not so secret weapon the guitar playing of the latest member of the band Harry Slater. The shape and approach is different from BWR, so we all wanted to hear the harder edgier rock from Bad Touch. Opening with One Night More, technical gremlins attacked the drummer George Drewery, who continued playing his loud hard drumming despite not being able to hear the rest of the band. Once sorted the band were firing on all five cylinders again.  Completing the Bad Touch sound is Daniel ‘seeks’ Seekings on guitar and bassist Michael Bailey who add such depth and tone to the Bad Touch Rock. Highlights of the set were Sweet Little April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchSecret from their debut album that hit the mark and Half Way Home.  Bad Touch are a sure touch that they will be making musical waves that purr with a lion’s roar of dominance. They have a sound that connects, heavy, hard and full of licks and vocal refrains that are earworms. We had cowboy refrains with Outlaw, softer with a sting in its musical tail. Stevie whirls and swirls tambourine held high but it is his vocals that gain your attention they have an attitude that makes them compelling on numbers such as Words I Never Say and then a different tone with radio friendly 99%. This is a number that has a little extra with its huge chorus and energy there is much more to be heard from these young guns of rock. Closing with The Mountain, we were left with Harry’s guitar fireworks and Stevie’s gritty vocals singing in our ears. Live music made Sunday sparkle with Rock n’ Roll.

Friday 13th bringing joy to The Globe Cardiff as Blues Rock drenches the packed audience with a medley of chords, lyrics and emotions. Special guest Broken Witt Rebels and the mighty King King turned up the Blues thermostat, the venue and the music was scorching.

Sold Out, music to the ears of bands, venues and promoters alike, as Cardiff gives a loud and enthusiastic shout out for the Blues Rock power that is King King with their special guests Broken Witt Rebels.

King King turned up the Blues thermostat Live in CardiffOpening the night, getting Friday 13th of to a rocking good start are the young band from Birmingham receiving lots of attention for all the right reasons. Having seen them play a festival set at Planet Rockstock 2016,  my expectations were very high. So do not let Bluesdoodles down! Did they No they did NOT… why the set was full of rock and roll sparkle the glints of razor sharp sapphire blue fused into the rocking foundation of the Rebels sound.

TheyOpened with Low, from the critically acclaimed EP Georgia Pine. This is a number that raises the temperature as the band took us on a musical journey with tracks from this and previous release Howlin.  The musical journey was a road of interest full of hefty licks, and gentler curves. The vocals of Danny Core are immense as he introduces a new number into the mix Bang Bang.  finishing with Guns, this is a band that is blazing a trail that you want to get on board. Many bands have potential, many promise so much. There is no argument that Broken Witt Rebels are a tight unit. The timing is impeccable, the warmth with which they thank the crowd is heartfelt. The stagecraft is mature and they have the hunger to rise to their promised destiny.  The quartet collectively making a sound that entertains are James Tranter, Luke Davis, James Dudley and Danny Core. The band’s exciting melding of styles, smooth and raw, smoky and intense this is music refusing to be bent into a genre just to raise your pulse. Now it is down to  Broken Witt Rebels; it is in their hands they have the energy, talent and drive to make it all the way.

King King turned up the Blues thermostat Live in Cardiff

There was an unplanned extended break due to technical gremlins. Well, it was Friday 13th, but thanks to the unsung heroes of a gig the sound man and King King’s roadie the troublesome lead was dispatched and the show was ready to start. Everyone in a packed Globe ready, waiting and eager to hear King King, and the voice of Alan Nimmo following the operation last year.

King King turned up the Blues thermostat Live in CardiffOpening the night with Lose Control, the opening track of the Live album we play when the band are not in town. The set list captured the essence that is King King. The d combination of Wayne Proctor on Drums and Lindsay Coulson completing the rhythm section and to the left of Alan –  Bob Fridzema, with is Hammond C and Piano. In Alan’s own words as King King kick start of 2017 with their first show of the year “this is going to be some gig!”. The crowd of fans hung onto every word and note sung, and those who were hearing the band for the first time live were enthralled.  His voice is back, full of emotional cadences and tone every word he sang with pure delight the smile said it all. Rush Hour, from Reaching For The Light,  was stunning!! The addition of a 300 strong choir sending a tingle down the spine as Alan conducted hearing the lyrics being sung to him. A magical moment, only being there in that moment really explains the feeling, Being in the company of people loving the music, celebrating the moment. Live music is made up of thousands of these special moments. Bob Fidzema’s dancing King King turned up the Blues thermostat Live in Cardiffhands brings Long History of Love to life, then More Than I Can Take, from Standing in The Shadows took the roof of the place. Then two songs played with a dedication. The first was recorded for Facebook live and was for Alan’s Mum who has not been well. Get Well soon shouted The Globe, hello Alan’s mum roared the capacity crowd and then You Stopped The Rain, what a song the emotional power hits everyone who listens to the number in a different way but always deeply personal. followed by Take A Look, not often played live and a favourite of Merch Man and Driver Mike. Alan as ever connects with the important things in a band’s journey. With the new remodelled voice giving Alan confidence and a vigour that spread across the room his excitement at King King playing on a stage again was infectious. Crazy, yes, the room went crazy with this perennial favourite. Then far too soon it was time for an encore Let Love In and another opportunity for Choir Globe to get involved.

Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels Music

Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels MusicBD: I was delighted when I listened to Georgia Pine for the first time I was instantly excited by the music. The EP had an energy and freshness and makes me just want to get to hear the band live.

Before we talk about touring and the album Broken Witt Rebels is a new band for many so Bluesdoodles readers would be interested in getting to know you

BD: Let start with your first musical influences growing up in Birmingham?
DC:
We all listened to the music of the nineties, Brit Pop including Oasis and Ocean Colour Scene Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels Musicwho were from Birmingham. There are so many bands from the Midlands that have influenced us and who we admire from Sabbath through to UB40 via Zeppelin and Duran Duran.  We have definitely been inspired by early Rolling Stones, The Doors, both variants of Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green era and Stevie Nicks.

I began picking up the guitar and playing along to Oasis. I then started to play rhythm chords, etc. I am great at one of them you decide. No seriously, I am a chord monkey on the guitar I leave the rest to James. Having given him the foundation, I underpin him with some great chords.

BD: Genres have become fixed putting musicians into categories how do you define your music.

DC: http://www.brokenwittrebels.comBroken Witt Rebels are a mix of everything Rock with soul and blues. My vocals have a soulful tone we are a super-mix of greatness crossing genres, Whatever we play pop or rock or blues we will be the best.

BD: Well you certainly have musical drive a powerhouse Joe Cocker Midlands Rock!

DC: Like that.

BD: Tell us about the formation of the band and the roles you all play in developing the BWR sound especially your distinctive vocals which have a growl and also twists to empathise with the lyrics…

DC: We work together we all contribute equally. The start of a new track could be guitar lick from James or a crazy drum roll and we go with that. Luke may lay down a great bass line or I may mumble a phrase and we go with that. We build from each other as we jam out in the practice room. I have a good voice, we are all striving to reach the point where we are masters of our instruments. We are all good musicians, good friends all creating a high profile sound. It is the collective effort that creates the BWR sound. Our philosophy is whatever is for the greatest good of the band. We try to play for each other, building on strengths and so often we have realised less is often more. No-one is on a personal ego drive, we are all on the same wavelength.

We do not as a band try to be clever. BWR is not about haircuts, tossing hair around the stage or widdly show-off guitar. It is about the music that we want to connect with the audiences. Yes, I am the front man as the vocalist. The band will not let me become above the rest we are only interested in doing our music as a collective. It is about the four of us owning our music. I will never be the enforcer, head of the band we are together Broken Witt Rebels.

BD: Having reviewed the EP Georgia Pine, tell us about inspiration behind the name and selection of the five tracks

DC: The name of the EP comes from an old stoner reference ‘As high as Georgia Pine’. The starting point was a picture Luke took in Florida of Georgia Pine. James had a guitar lick and I said Sweet Georgia Pine and it worked. I explored the phrase and realised that it was what we wanted to do musically to be the highest trees on the circuit.

Choosing the five tracks was about creating a short-list from a number we had. With an EP you can continually develop and re-invent as you can hear when we play live and on the vinyl that is now available. The tracks worked well together and the two singles got airplay including Planet Rock.

BD: I have always been interested in the lyrics of a song. Where do you get your inspiration for your songwriting?

DC: Lyrics happen, when I practice I mumble things, sing melody and lines from top of my head. When I replay something always stands out then using that to write about my life or something that is happening in the band or something I connect with. I do not sit down and write a song as you would a poem. It is quite fluid, happens from a phrase or word and grows from that point.

 BD: I am sure you have many plans for 2017 and beyond for Broken Witt Rebels following on from the excitement of 2016 festivals and recognition as Best Rock Act – 1st Unsigned Music Awards.

DC: We are starting the year off picking back up supporting King King and into the mix is opening for local blues guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor and then our headlining Roadstar tour with Bad Touch. Through March and April playing across England, with visits to Scotland and Wales. The combination of opening for bands and then a tour will reinforce and expand our fan base.

One thing for sure is we are hungry to play our music, get noticed. We want to be a success, to be remembered we are not looking for fifteen minutes of fame then fade away.

We want to be the best band in the world, recognised for our great music, fantastic shows slaying everyone down with our music. We want a career, to make ourselves and our families proud we are aiming for sold out world tours. Danny, misquoting (Bette Davies. “oh Jerry, don’t ask for the moon. We Have the stars” – Now Voyager) but very apt we are aiming for the moon because then we will fall in with the stars – suits this ambitious young band that are determined to be heard.

2017 we definitely need a new album, not to have one would be a massive missed opportunity. We have the material we are ready to go. BWR fans will definitely see us playing in as many towns as possible across UK as well as playing Europe and hopefully dipping our toes into USA.  Musn’t forget we are playing up a mountain in Wales at The Steelhouse Festival which will be fun. 

BD: If you were putting together the perfect band with members from across the years (dead or alive) who would you have playing
DC:  Well let me think? It would be ……..

Drums: James Dudley
Bass: Luke Davies
Guitar: James Tranter
Vocals: (laughing ) Me!!!
Yes, I could think of the legends but that what they are from the past we are the future.

When asked about what music he is currently listening to the response was Georgia Pine, Demo’s new Broken Witt Rebels music I do not have time for anything else. It is all about our music making it the best we are hungry for recognition through music that is great and to be instantly recognised as Broken Witt Rebels.

Roadstars 2017 Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch Tour

Roadstars 2017 Broken Witt Rebels & Bad TouchRoadstars 2017 Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch Tour 

 

Broken Witt Rebels experienced success in 2016 with the release of their 5-track EP featuring the singles “Low” and “Guns” which received airplay on Planet Rock and XS Manchester, while “Low” was Track of the Week on Radio X.

On October 27th, they won “Best Rock Act” at the first annual Unsigned Music Awardsheld at The Troxy in London, and closed the Awards by performing “Guns”.  BWR were also nominated for “Best Live Act”.

The title of BWR EP Georgia Pine comes from an old stoner reference “As high as a Georgia Pine. For BWR, the metaphor is more about their ascension to the top. It’s clear they haven’t come to make up the numbers.

With the title track Georgia Pine as their most recent single, the Rebels show their softer side, with Danny Core’s trademark howl melts hearts with the impassioned lyrics “You’re always there for me.”

BWR have amassed over 1 million video plays and “Guns” became the 9th most shared and play-listed track on Spotify in the UK during July.  With a major label deal around the corner, the future’s looking bright.

 

Broken Witt Rebels are a band not to missed and with Bad Touch as will this is a double live delight

 

Roadstars 2017 Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch Tour

 

Bad Touch has dovetailed  the album release, and UK co-headline tour on November 19th with the Australian rock band Massive.

The new album, which was recorded at Mwnci Studios in Wales, features the singles“99%” and “Made To Break”, both *remixed for radio by the legendary Rolling Stones engineer and co-producer, Chris Kimsey.  Both singles will be accompanied by official music videos.

“99% is a great song to ride around in cars and drink beer and smoke pot and listen to rock and roll on the radio,” says Chris Kimsey. “Not that I drink beer or smoke pot , but I remember the simplicity of music and life so it’s good to hear it is alive and kicking with Bad Touch. I heard something that evoked a good time melodic love song. It just needed some re-arranging and mixing to get to the heart of the song.”

The new album, Truth Be Told sees Bad Touch celebrating classic rock with Southern boogie influences, supported with heavy guitar riffs and an iron-clad, tight rhythm section, in the great tradition of Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin.

Rescheduled Tour Dates dictated by Alan Nimmo's VocalsKING KING RE-SCHEDULE BULK OF NOVEMBER UK TOUR DATES TO 2017

Due to a recent vocal cord condition with lead singer and guitarist Alan Nimmo, the majority of King King’s November 2016 UK tour dates with special guests Broken Witt Rebels, have been re-scheduled to January, February, March and May 2017. The news follows the release of the band’s first ever live album ‘King King Live’ that went to #1 in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Rock Chart, and the upcoming release of their radio remix of their new single ‘Waking Up’.

Says King King’s frontman, Alan Nimmo, “I’ve seen my ENT specialist. He put a camera down my throat to look at what condition my vocal cords were in. Unfortunately, there’s still a good bit of inflammation and redness. I’ve been working with a vocal coach to build strength and stamina to aid my recovery.
“We will be re-scheduling most of the dates on the UK tour to January, February and March, however, we will commit to the remaining four shows on the November UK tour, beginning at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall (25 November), continuing through to the Live Rooms in Chester (26 November), The Grand Venue in Clitheroe (27 November) and wrapping up in London at Islington Assembly Hall (29 November).”

Rescheduled Tour Dates dictated by Alan Nimmo's Vocals
In the last six months, the buzz around self-released, Birmingham blues rock band Broken Witt Rebels has reached a deafening roar. So much so that the band have rushed out their latest single, Guns, to capitalize on fan-driven interest. The official video for Guns has generated almost 400,000 views on YouTube in less than 48 hours.

Chosen by the fans, Guns is now the second single to be taken from the band’s <strong>Georgia Pine EP. Produced by Tom Gittins (Robert Plant), the previous single, Low, was a featured track of the week on Radio X, and play-listed on Planet Rock, who are currently playing Guns.

GUNS pays homage to their hometown of Birmingham with a melody and energy that tears through you, with the refrain. “Born and raised where Guns are made, they burn bright like a cigarette.”

The Birmingham four-piece is comprised of James Tranter (guitar), Danny Core (vocals), Luke Davis (bass) and James Dudley (drums). Their bluesy southern swagger has drawn favourable comparisons with Kings of Leon, Alabama Shakes and The Black Keys.
