Ralph has been giving Edinburgh band Black Cat Bone the odd spin on his Radio KC Indie Show recently due to their intensely likeable bluesy sound, so it's with great pleasure that we can announce the release of their debut album Growl on the 31st October. Ralph has had a sneak preview and I can tell you now their alt rock bluesy style is shining through with this release.
From the moody John The Revelator to the gritty Canned Heat-esque (think On The Road Again) eponymously titled lead track Growl Black Cat Bone are laying out their musical stall with forceful intent. Growl is a ten track album of which I've been lucky enough to have a meaty five track taster.
Piece Of Mind is a foot stompin' guitar-driven gem, perfect for a single and bound to be a live favourite. Shades of John Mayall with a bit of Jeff Beck geetar and some mean harmonica thrown in for good measure.
Illicit Thrill is a real killer from note one, with its proper bluesy, hair up on the back of your neck harmonica, get down and dirty strings, kick you in the nuts throaty vocal. It's sleazy and greasy, don't want it to stop blues music at its best.
I'm not giving away anymore here...go and find out for yourself, you will not be sorry!
Catch Black Cat Bone live in The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh on Friday, October 30th for the album launch if you can!
