When The Bad Flowers visited The Muni in Pontypridd in support of Stone Broken they were ...”The Bad Flowers is a real rocking masterpiece of three musicians in perfect harmony playing authentic rock they believe in”…
After a very successful Planet Rock Roadstars tour with SIMO and Aaron Keylock in December 2016, the Federal Charm worked on some new songs and recorded some demos in an away-from-it-all cottage in Wales. The demos ultimately led to a line-up change a few months later. Founding members Paul Bowe (guitar) and L.D.

Explosions ensued the minute they hit the studio for rehearsals and song-writing. With a new energy, the revitalized team of Bowe, Morawski, Guyer, Zahler set to work, over the following months, bonding, writing and recording, and opening the shows for UFO, Y&T and for Thin Lizzy’s legendary Brian Downey and his band Alive And Dangerous.
FC recently road-tested some of the new songs and the new line-up via four sold-out shows in Bristol, Norwich, Manchester and Newcastle and received the thumbs up from fans and critics alike. Bluesdoodles loved the new songs this is what we said … “a new song that will be a set list favourite of the future Death Rattle, demonstrating the death rattle was not of the band fading away but the crescendo of new ideas for new music for us to hear, get to know and fall in love with”… Read more HERE
