Amazing Snakeheads on Saturday

Bildergebnis für the amazing snakeheads

I am really not a huge fan of blues or blues rock but sometimes a band appears in this genre that makes me think about this genre different. Last year The Amazing Snakeheads realeased their first record Amphetamine Ballads and I looked forward to see them live. But suddenly they split without any reason. So it is one more band/album that disappeared in the high tight of new releases. I grabbed out this records recently and I am still exalted about what I've heard. Classic songs in a very slow tempo with a dominant bass and sharp guitars. Added with a voice directly from hell. Learned and trained by the spirit of The Cramps , Gun Club and the Stray Cats they made an outstanding record. Maybe this will be a classic in a few years.

Great band. Marc Riley played them a lot on 6Music. I didn't realise that they'd split. Is it me, or does the singer sound a lot like Alice Cooper at times?

I can hear a bit of Alex Harvey Swede

I saw them live on a few occasions and they always seemed on the verge of disintregration. Exciting to watch. My mate never missed them when they played in Glasgow.

They made the shortlist of 10 for the Scottish Album of the Year in 2015. It seems they broke up even before the album hit the shops.

Insidentally Walter, neither of the downloads are working (Monday night)

I made an upload of these songs to the cloud once again. Please give me a notice if the download works now.
