GALLON DRUNK: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Inglesi della fine anni ’80, la loro musica è un omaggio al r’n’r del 1950 e al garage rn’b dei anni ’60. I primi singoli tra il 1988 e il ’90 sono rinchiusi nel lp Tonite…the single baby. A seguire le incisioni in studio migliorano tecnicamente e come testi, si esibiscono in alcuni concerti dal vivo, ottenendo ottime critiche di pubblico. Partecipano anch in un film non solo come musicisti ma anche come attori in Black Milkmdel regista Nicholas Triandafyllidis. Ottimo lavoro dove il r’n’b si miscela con il contry.
