Roaming Son - History Of Violence EP

To paraphrase Christopher Ecclestone’s Doctor Who, “every country has a South”, and despite hailing from Sheffield in England’s north, Roaming Son have a definite American Southern twang to them. It’s not right there, good ol’ boy, in yer face, but it underlies the Stones-meets-Stooges rock n’ roll of the four tracks on this excellent debut record.

The title track and Belly Of The Beast are rough-hewn rockers to down shots to, seemingly carved from solid rock with bare hands, while singer Tim Lee Cavanagh gargles the debris.

Gonna Get You hints at a collection of battered vinyl which includes The Cramps and their ilk, while Gonna Move, the closer of this four track burst of energy, starts as a reggae shuffle that evokes memories of Izzy Stradlin’s JuJu Hounds.

Having honed their sound supporting the likes of Jason & The Scorchers, Roaming Son have got their groove on, so let’s hope there are plans for a full length album soon!
