Land of Cain

Land of Cain is a superb four piece rock/metal outfit from West London. Featuring astonishing guitar work, a pounding rhythm section, progressive strains and thought provoking lyrics the band are becoming a force to be reckoned with on the local  hard rock scene.

The band started life as “One Bitter Pill” in 2004, with Grant Chambers and Aaron Waddingham in the original line-up. In 2007, Grant and Aaron decided to take the band in a darker and heavier direction, and with the addition of Spencer Dargue on Drums and Chris Jordan on Bass, the band began writing the new material which would later evolve into the songs for their first album “Collapse the Control”.

Staines

w/ Lemonshaft

Even if our zeitgeist (spirit of this age) yokes us away from this inexplicable xenophobia and withdrawal from various prejudices; the undefined beauty of this theoretical Acousto alt.ectronika band is that they subsume delicicious sounds in their rarefied qualitative productions openly, but not nihilistically, as a motif (laconic or otherwise) kinetically determined judiciously inward – yet holistically grafted in a frantic effort towards a dynamic and a cosmically broadened anxiety.

Ed Hudson Band

ROYAL OAK HAMPTON
Friday 16th January 2009

Ed Hudson Band

Ed Hudson Band

Hey little thing let me light your candle

Let there be Rock – The Ed Hudson Band

The Ed Hudson Band plays a variety of warm and agreeable country rock sounds with an aggressive blues-rock edge… a bit more alt country than pure blues but ‘fused’ well so the music retains an authentic rock n roll sound. The band  plays as a trio so it is no surprise that the lively set includes covers of tunes from the likes of ZZ Top and Thin Lizzy. Bravely, though, the boys did manage to pull off a successful rendition of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ which was originally played by a whole ‘backyard’ of teenage friends including a keyboardist.

Ed Hudson looks every inch of a Mississippi swampland good ‘ole boy… raised on a diet of Yazoo catfish gumbo and muddy water blues. But, in fact,  Ed got the musical bug in West Cumbria (back in the good ‘ole U of K) in the 1980’s when he played in a punk band and, later,  a hard rock group called Belfagan.  Ed moved to London town in 1993 and spent years gigging with bands like Panting Skeletons, Good Company, The Flame Tattoo and Three State Blues. By the early 2000’s Ed was recording and touring with the band Red Road co-writing much of their material but failing to get noticed by the industry- even though he was managed by Trinifold (Who,Page and Plant, Judas Priest.)

Red Road never went stellar the way they shoulda, and in 2001 Ed started to sing and play guitar for Bad II The Bone. We are now fortunate to be able to see Ed Hudson and his various side projects near to us somewhere in Middlesex County as he tours the more intimate local venues with his choogling twangy guitar and bluesey improvisations.

When I saw the band (at The Royal Oak, Hampton)  the set-list included “Cocaine”, the song written and recorded by Lynrd
Skynrd songwriter J.J. Cale in 1975 but most widely known in a cover version recorded by Eric Clapton. In this song Ed, wearing his cowboy hat, boots and denim combo, smoothly and soulfully sings out the lyrics (the song is unquestionably anti-drugs) whilst often incorporating simultaneous lead and rhythm parts on his guitar. His bassist and drummer are steadfast and reliable compadres to these living blues- but they never dare to rise in stature to threaten the main man. Ed rules the stage with a gentle hand, though, asking and persuading rather demanding song choices, adjustments to sound and lights, re-tunes etc. He is a compassionate and loyal band-leader and even allows the bass player to vocalise on the Stones delta blues cover “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”.

Free’s ‘Wishing Well’ (later covered by Pearl Jam & Blackfoot) provided ample opportunity for the band to grind up some notches and pull out some raw chords whilst weeping some emotion into their pure RnB sounds. The band also covers Otis
Redding’s “Hard to Handle” but more in the style of the Black Crowes circa 1993 than the original.

Ed has an affection for the British blues scene of the 1960-70s, and the set included numbers from the Free, Eric Clapton and the Stones song-book but he also adds some welcome heavy metal touches, with songs like Deep Purple’s ‘Black Knight’, to keep the punters roaring for more.

Wearing a ‘Four Wheel Drive’ T-shirt (keeping local new music alive and well in Middlesex) our blues rock hero can jam hard with the best of ‘em. For a night of raw-edged insight and clear blue sky ballsy balladeering, this band is not to be missed.

So you and I are lucky, because the Ed Hudson Band is also one of the hardest working acts in the business, with plenty of dates in the near future at venues near you!

Top Unsigned Act of  the Year- at Staines

Nixa at Staines

Nov 27 2008      8:00P The Hobgoblin *with HER:ENEMY*     Staines £3

“One of the top 10 unsigned acts in the UK”
Metro National Newspaper

Rock / Tropical

Nixa are rock. They’re here to remind you that despite reality TV, plastic indie tat, the cult of celebrity, and production-line pop, ultimately it’s still all about the music. They write great songs, and have a lot of fun while they’re doing it – and that’s their manifesto. Fundamentally, they just love music and want music to love them back, and as a result they have so many riffs that they’re currently being investigated by The Monopolies Commission. Multi-layered and yet accessible to anyone who’s ever felt adrenaline surge through their veins, Nixa songs combine addictive melodies, intertwining vocals, riotous screaming, ferocious guitars, pulsing drums, and dirty bass to create an energetic morass that climbs the walls and rips the roof off. Nixa was born in the summer of 2006 after a massive gangbang involving Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Soulwax and Death Cab for Cutie: the custody battle still rages…

“London five piece The Comanche Cipher deal in progressive hardcore that’s big on hooks and aggro and has landed them support slots with the likes of With Honor, Enter Shikari and Send More Paramedics. Their debut EP comprises of five tracks
of from-the-gut metallic bluster that has been honed to precision and is primed to inspire the kind of mosh pit melee that will leave noses bloodied and limbs bruised. With diamond-edged riffs hacking and scything at you throughout, they know
exactly when to unleash a thick breakdown or an anthemic melody to ensure that intensity levels are never given the chance to flag. A damn good introduction”
