Eight tracks of modern, sometimes challenging but always entertaining and beautifully played music, with the right foot always in the blues.
The bands live shows are always tight, powerful, energetic affairs, best summed up in a recent review of a live show from a fan…
“Being of a certain age, I sometimes find it hard to motivate myself to go out of a night and see bands. However, when I heard that Blast Lane were playing at the Devonshire Cat in Sheffield, I just couldn’t resist. The band were simply ‘amazing’ – a potent blend of all my top blues/rock influences but delivered without recourse to the dreaded 12 bar format and with a style all of their own. Their songs were catchy, melodic, powerful and chock full of dynamics and interesting arrangements. They were also powerful without being so loud that you had to reach for earplugs. This is how a trio can sound when at its best.
They worked as a unit and played for each other. Chillo was a revelation – I can’t remember the last time I saw a local guitarist with such flair and passion. His fluent style and suitably gruff voice were the icing on the cake. Steve and Allen formed a perfect foundation – I guess these two must have been together for years, and it showed – an absolute rhythm section masterclass.
Check this band out if you can. Thanks to Blast Lane for reminding me what live music is all about.
Oh yes, I bought their EP – it’s blooming marvelous ;)
