In session

In session
Owen Whittall and George Clark, as childhood friends, naturally formed a band and having met Owain Hanford at college, the need for a drummer was fulfilled.
 
The three-piece played their first gig, as Sweet Talk, at the Venue in Hereford in August 2015 and after that, agreed something was missing. So they invited Will Phipps on keyboards in February 2016.
 
But then, the band run into difficulties as the drummer went off to university, so Jake Drinkwater joined on sticks and made his first appearance in his hometown of Tenbury in September 2016.
 
Sweet Talk are influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.
 
“Talk about rock, this group of youngsters has the kind of spirit that would normally come from the most seasoned performers.” - Andrew Marston
 

Record Store Day

Record Store Day
Remember the old days of sorting out the wow and flutter, weighing down the needle with an old 2p, dust sleeves, pops, scratches, broken needles and belts that fell off your turntables?
 
Apparently - a lot of people want those days back!
 
So we're at Record Store Day at Vintage Trax in Redditch and Rise Records in Worcester finding out about the resurgence of vinyl.

The potty-mouthed Newport massiv Goldie Lookin' Chain have been confirmed for Nozstock alongside The Sugarhill Gang.

Other duplicates include GLC at Nozstock (Lakefest 2015), Imelda May at Lakefest (Nozstock 2016), Sam & The Womp at Under The Hill (El Dorado 2016), Hot 8 Brass Band at El Dorado (Nozstock 2016), The Wurzels at Upton Sunshine (Nozstock 2011 & Upton 2015), The Correspondents at Nozstock (Nozstock 2012 & 2013) and Dreadzone at Mello (Nozstock 2012). We investigate...
