|ADMIRAL SIR CLOUDSLEY SHOVELL CHECK 'EM BEFORE YOU WRECK 'EM Limited Vinyl LP
The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell are the last of a dying breed of Grease Rock Bastard musicians who somehow, despite and in spite of the last 3 decades trying their best to kill off balls out, non-bullshit rock’n’roll music, somehow, against all the fucking odds, still exist, surviving on a steady diet of God sent gigs, hire vans, broken down amps, split drum skins, greasy spoon fry ups, patched up jeans, roll-ups, cheap leather jackets, booze, weed and bathtub speed.
On their new LP CHECK ‘EM BEFORE YOU WRECK ‘EM the Shovell somehow carry on the lineage of the truly golden age of British heavy rock whose dog shit stained road was paved by the likes of Budgie, Sabbath, early Motorhead, Quo, Lizzy, The Groundhogs, Stray etc. Chuck in a healthy chunk of U.S. and Aussie proto metallurgists Sir Lord Baltimore, Dust, Bang, The Litter and Buffalo, as well as a healthy Vertigo ‘Swirl’ of dew picked mushrooms bad trip psych.
The Shovell thinks the world could do with another slice of no-nonsense re-gressive proto-rock ‘n’metal - one that you don’t need a Degree in doom-rock or a Masters in metal to appreciate – just a love of when music was F U N !!!!
