are worth waiting for, and that certainly proved to be the case with The Clench‘s return to live action at The Greystones last night. Not forgetting another two fine sets from Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers and Andy P. Davison (or as he could well now be known, one half of The Andys along with Mr Dye!) who’d got the night under way. Certainly wasn’t a bad way to begin our run of three shows this month…

which leads us to Friday June 16th when WagonWheel Presents… returns to The Backroom for the visit of Otis Gibbs. Boss Caine will be opening this show, and you don’t want to miss it. Full details can be found here.

saw Whitney Rose and her band make their Sheffield debut on their first UK tour, whilst A Prayer Away played their very first show. The one thing that wasn’t new at The Greystones yesterday was a fine evening of music from two great bands. Thanks to everybody that was there to enjoy it with us.

WagonWheel Presents… will be doing it all again on Saturday June 3rd in the company of The Clench, Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers and Andy P. Davison. Full details for this show can be found here. Good times guaranteed, we hope you can join us again.

On Saturday June 3rd, WagonWheel Presents… a fine triple bill at The Greystones. We’ve got cowboy tinged rock ‘n’ roll from The Clench, power pop spiked alt-country from Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers, and blues from The Black Thunder Revue front man Andy P. Davison. Advance tickets priced at £5 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/381431 and the venue (12-6pm) or entry on the night will be £6. Doors open 7.45pm.

 

***THE CLENCH***

The Clench deliver whiskey-fuelled, bluesy country outlaw rock, to put it in a not very small nutshell. Debut EP ‘Pain Don’t Hurt’ was followed by the acclaimed album ‘Walking In The Devils Tracks’, and after several years of waiting, earlier in 2017 the band have finally released the follow up LP simply titled The Clench. They aim to make ‘music to ride horses by’ and their sound conjures up images of Western desert landscapes and cowboys.

Doesn’t so much buck the trend as fit it with spurs and place JR Ewing’s hat on its head.Sheffield Star

A truly stunning swoon that’d make any red-blooded listener want to canter off into the distance. It’s sexy, sultry and visually evocative. The band’s Western-drenched material is intoxicatingly evocative.” Sheffield Telegraph

***BOB COLLUM & THE WELFARE MOTHERS***

Go West, young man, the cry went up of ages past. And they did. Except for one guy, who went East. And that’s Bob Collum, who in trading the prairies for the less fetching plains of Britain’s surly southeast has brought to these shores a taste of the music that both he and his native Tulsa, Oklahoma, call home.

In Tulsa, though, nothing is done small, so on top of his power-pop influenced take on country music Bob has loaded, in a style akin to that of a pioneer with more cargo than wagon, about every last influence likely to be tried by a feller with a taste for audio adventure.

At the end of the 20th century millions of migrants swarmed America, looking for a better life, freedom, land, that kind of thing. Fast forward a hundred years and some change and one pilgrim name of Collum reversed the trend, arriving on Airstrip One just as the Millennium Bug bites and a troubled but excited world awaited a new hundred and got plenty: a reinvigorated B.C. bent on building upon the fantastic foundation of his first two albums and the formation of a new band.

In 2015 Bob & Co. released the latest CD, Little Rock following a series of cult hits that began with ‘97’s More Tragic Songs Of Life. A new record is due this year.

like Elvis Costello, Collum is able to frame scenes and tell stories with vivid and compelling effect” 9/10 Americana UK

A turn of phrase to rank with Nick Lowe’s, and an instinct for hook and melody mean you’re thinking of the Byrd’s with a country edge to boot.Bucketfull Of Brains

Collum is a lyricist of note, and can turn his hand to heartbreak, pain, love and loss with equal facility, all the time while displaying his penchant for the slightly skewed view of things.Maverick Magazine

***ANDY P. DAVISON***

When he’s not playing shows as part of The Black Thunder Revue, Andy flies solo with his trusty resonator guitar. The sound is rooted in Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll, but draws on many styles.

***THE BEARCATS***

the-bearcats

The BearCats are a four piece female fronted rockabilly / rock’n’roll / blues band from Sheffield. They play rock’n’roll roll like it should be played, gutsy & raw with tons of attitude. After opening our Cale Tyson show earlier this year, they return for a full headline set with a newly expanded line up.

***LUZON VALLEY FEARLESS***

luzon-valley-fearless

Luzon Valley Fearless are a close knit unity of family and dear friends, their music is homely and expressive yet honest and cathartic with a west coast vibe and a soft spot for classic sci-fi.

one weekend of great music. That’s what we had over the last couple of days at Shakespeares. It began in fine style on Saturday night in the Bard’s Bar with King Quentin, The Sea Whores and The Ragged Edge, followed by a delightful afternoon in the beer garden yesterday with M&J Blues, Steve Chapman Smith, Big Convoy, Luke Whittemore and Andy P. Davison. Thanks to all involved and all who joined us to listen.

The next WagonWheel Presents… show is on Tuesday September 8th when we welcome The Rosellys and Mat Wale & Friends to The Greystones. You can read a full preview for the show here. Maybe you’ll join us too?
