Headliners DESERT ROCK feature British Blues guitarist and vocalist Ramon Goose. The band combine West African Mandinka rhythms with earthy trancey blues. Ramon formed Desert Rock to get back to edgier more dangerous blues and he’s certainly succeeded as the band fire out a dirty, rockin’ live sound. Like a mix of Tinariwen, Rachid Taha and Bo Diddley.
Support comes from singer-guitarist GARRY “THE SLIDE GUY” SMITH. With roots in the blues and a whole heap of other influences at his fingertips, he takes the slide guitar to some interesting places, mixing wittily worded original material with the occasional well chosen cover.
On the decks resident DJs THE SHOUT COLLECTIVE: AKA Jamie Renton (Chilli Fried/Soulclectica), Joe Cushley (Balling the Jack), Norman Druker, Aly Prince and Deb Smith will be taking the Devil’s Music back to Africa, out into the big city and anywhere else that feels right for moving and grooving the people.
