Playlist 01.10.12

Stuart Bailie | 09:13 UK time, Thursday, 4 October 2012

Best regards to the Hard Chargers, who supported the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band at the Empire in Belfast last Saturday night. They play amped-out blues music with attitude. Chris Todd is hollering and chasing the bottleneck along the frets. Dave Thompson plays stand-up bass and sometimes he worries the electric alternative. Richard J Hodgen brings the rumble-thump dynamic with his washboard and his drums. Sometimes they remind you of errant combos like the North Mississippi Allstars, but there's also a fierce residue of Rory Gallagher when the tunes get heated. Top value and an incentive, if needed, to get their music on the playlist.
