Formed in early 2000 by Carl Vincent and myself, after an initial burst of creativity which resulted in our debut album “Long Roads and Heavy Loads”, parenthood and employment have meant the recording of our follow up has been a rather sporadic and protracted affair…
These are a handful of samples from our first ten years.
Allan’s son I love his music!
John Paul Jones~ Style
Organ was originally my favourite love,” he said, adding wryly, “but for session playing, I found it much easier to carry a bass guitar to work than a Hammond organ. So there I was living with all I had—a guitar, a Hammond organ, and a table and bed in my room in London.
“As a bass player, I wasn’t influenced by a lot of people because it was only in the mid- to late-1960s that you could even hear the bass properly on records. I had a number of obvious jazz influences—most of the good jazz bass player influenced me in one way or another…Charlie Mingus, Ray Brown, Scott LeFaro. I even got into jazz organ for a while until I couldn’t stand the musicians any more and I had to get back to rock and roll.”
“I’ve got to own up. The first record that really turned me on to rock bass guitar was “You Can’t Sit Down” by Phil Upchurch which has an incredible bass solo and was a really good record as well. It was very simple musically but the record had an incredible amount of balls.”
John Paul arranged the outstanding single “She’s a Rainbow” for the Rolling Stones and also worked on several tracks on the Their Satanic Majesties Request album. :)
