Welcome to The Rock Train blog.
In our first show last summer our first ever studio guests were Grantham band Wrecklass Necklass. They dazzled us with their tales of their early gigs and their love of all things Scooby Doo. Josh. Joe and Tom certainly love their music and the band are getting a great reputation.
At the time they had a raw demo CD which we played on the show. We’ve played tracks from it on many shows since just because their sound is so good. Wrecklass Necklass are 3 teenage lads who live and breathe their band.
This week they not only talk to Sam about what they’ve been up to in the last few months but also tell us about the progress they’ve made as a band. Joe and Josh now attend the Access To Music course in Lincoln and they tell us about how this is helping them explore new areas of music.
Wrecklass Necklass have been writing new material and treat us to a fantastic acoustic set recorded in the Siren FM studios. they played a mixture of new songs and some favourite cover versions.
Their new EP, ‘Broken Britain’ features great new songs and is available online though the band’s website or online via ITunes/Spotify. Wrecklass Necklass will be appearing in Lincoln Saturday 10th March at the Red Room at the Duke of Wellington in this week’s Battle of The Bands heat, along with another one of our studio guests from past shows, Kill The Ideal. Check it out for a great show.
Wrecklass Necklass are also playing at the Voodoo Lounge Stamford Friday 9th March then in Boston on 13th March at The Axe and Cleaver supporting Stukka Squadron.
Also on the show this week is an interview with Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman’s Dean Back which took place backstage at Rock City just before they band took to the stage. He tells us of the great respect the band have for the rock fans in the UK and Europe. He also tells us of the major Festival that theory of Deadman hope to be playing over here in the summer. (clue = 1st word is Down, 2nd word rhymes with ‘Toad’)
Dean chose two Theory of a Deadman tracks which Sam plays on the show, ‘I Hate My Life’ and ‘Gentleman’.
So this week sees The Rock Train feature one band starting out on the road to rock stardom and another band who are massive in North America and who are breaking through in the UK at last.
