Albino: Night At The Chemist

Albino, ‘probably London’s greatest alcoholic garage rock band’, are back with their brand new album, ‘Night at the Chemist’. The band, consisting of Ben Tucker on guitar and vocals, Merv Salole on bass, Gareth Morris on guitar, and Don Gibson on percussion, and managed by Rocker Young, have easily performed over 250 gigs since starting up the band in 2005. Once a year, they even head out on an international tour, so those not from the UK will still have the chance to see this highly animated band of vintage-rock tendencies.

Albino can only be described as whisky obsessed Americana/garage rock musicians who can rock any venue using their incredible, often humorous original songs, including ‘Belinda’, the lead single off the new album, which displays the band’s energetic, light-hearted and passionate characteristics.

The strong beat alongside the catchy melody and lyrics, and the tremendous vocals from Ben Tucker, complemented by the extraordinary guitar solos, make their music incredibly satisfying and enjoyable for a wide range of listeners, making us dust off and tune our air guitars, ready to play along.

Lola Lamour with her band The Lamours are ‘Looking for Love’ with new original vintage EP

Lola Lamour

Lead single ‘Slow Motion Love Affair’ to be released on February 16th, with EP ‘Looking for Love’ released March 30th

A unique and original group influenced by the vintage era of singers such as Peggy Lee and Doris Day, singer/song writer Lola Lamour and her band The Lamours are set to release their new EP ‘Looking For Love’ this March.

 

Capturing perfectly the glamour and sparkle of the 50s and the 60s, their original music is a throwback to a time when rhythm and blues actually meant rhythm and blues and big bands ruled the musical roost. The spirit of the era is encapsulated by the EP, represented perfectly by the smooth yet racy swing of lead single ‘Slow Motion Love Affair’:

This love for the past and devotion to rediscovering its magic has led Lola and The Lamours to stages all around the UK and Europe as they have grown into a name on the lips of everyone on the vintage circuit. Now, with their new release on the horizon, they have a great chance of breaking out into the mainstream, following in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed vintage darling Si Cranstoun, with whom they have shared many a stage.

 

Songwriters Lola, David Lowe, and Andy Dawson do a fantastic job of emulating the glamorous sound of the era and adding a contemporary twist.

 

Leading lady Lola is the driving force behind the burgeoning success of the group which has been featured nationally on many occasions with features and appearances in the Daily Mail, the Telegraph, Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Radio 2, GMTV and countless other outlets.

 

It’s all thanks in part to her charisma and her dedication to the vintage way of life – her home recreates the 50s/60s feel so accurately that it’s been used as a set for several TV projects. But mostly the success comes from Lola’s supreme vocal talents, song writing, and the musical backing of her Lamours.

 

The single ‘Slow Motion Love Affair’ will be released on February 16th ahead of the EP ‘Looking for Love’ which will be available March 30th
