Guitar Lessons London Album Review THE GET GO – TYPICALLY ENGLISH

Guitar Lessons London NEW ALBUM REVIEW: London Guitar Academy‘sPaul Wood sprinkles some gold dust in his album review of the THE GET GO – TYPICALLY ENGLISH

A three piece band based in South East London, The Get-Go have a blues rock sound which is a throwback to the British blues and rock scene of the 60s and 70s.

With influences clearly including bands such as Humble Pie, Free and Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green era), any fan of this particular genre should certainly try and listen to this album.

Here’s the band’s bio on Southside Records:

Although the influences are clear, the songs themselves sound fresh and are well worth hearing. All but one of the 13 tracks is an original composition – the one cover being the band’s take on the Lovin’ Spoonful classic “Summer In The City”.

The three piece line up of Stuart Farnham (guitar, vocals), Brian Hall (bass, vocals) and Richard Metcalfe (drums) are augmented on various tracks by guest musicians (including Style Council ‘s Mick Talbot) on keyboards and horns. The extra musicians allow the sound of the album to move beyond the basic core three piece sound and gives an “old school” American R & B/Blues  feel to some of the tracks.

Stuart Farnham’s voice has that “magical” Steve Marriott ingredient but all the band contribute on vocals (live and on the album), and the album has rockers and slower based numbers, so you get a good blend of sounds across the album as a whole.

The album gets a thoroughly deserved 8/10 review in the last issue of “Blues” magazine.

Catch them live if you can…

Recommended listening for London Guitar Academy students

It’s short and sweet at only 2 minutes long in total but check out the guitar riff in the album’s opening track “Two Time Loser”:

… and the classic blues rock swagger of second track “Ain’t No Fool”:

 

 

 

Favourite Track

The slowed down bluesy “Sail On”:

Useful facts:

The band has a regular end of month (Friday) residency billed under the banner of “The Real R & B” at the Pelton Arms in Greenwich. Other upcoming gigs include 14 March (Billericay Town FC) and 23 March (New Cross Inn).

There is a shortage of good sound quality live web footage of The Get-Go but here’s the band doing a sound check performance of album track “Down The Line”:
