Ben starts the show, he makes songs, plays instruments, and writes about himself in the third person. He was born in Greenwich. He now lives in Camden. Eventually he will die somewhere.
Greasy Slicks ACM Alumni
The Slicks take influence from bands such as The Temperance Movement, Led Zeppelin, The Hoax and many others while clearly absorbing elements of rock & roll and blues as a means to establish their own style; which they have with some aplomb. Their passionate live shows have been described as the soundtrack for “a bourbon-soaked bar brawl” and are where they strive to ensure audiences are captivated by the Slicks energy, commitment and musicianship. Having already played venues that are akin to their authentic roots, the Slicks revel on taking the listener through a narrative and appreciate the symbiotic relationship between quietude and the vociferous parts of their songs – ‘Wild Ones’ being a consummate example.
Welcome the Howling Tones
Pauly T and his mate, Animalistic drummer Lawrence Arnold, were meeting regularly to jam with a number of musicians covering a wide spectrum of sound and style. After many tasty jams with the indomitable Chris Gilday on bass, and still searching for a lead guitarist, Chris picked up a nearby guitar and started playing perfect Howling Blues lead with classic metal undertones. He was quickly begged to take on the role permanently and the search for a replacement bassist began.
Welcome the Howling Tones hit the perfect vibe when bassist/vocals man Iain “Cat Scratch” Turner brought the final ingredient to the mix. His contributions came thick and fast, adding an upbeat funky edge to the already rhythmically pounding sound and style.
