Punk Rock, Post Punk and New Wave
Post Punk and New Wave covers, circa 1977 - 1983, played as authentically as possible.... think Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Squeeze, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, The Jam, The Undertones, The Police, Magazine, Buzzcocks.
Forty Fiver formed in 2010 to play classic songs from the Punk, Post Punk and New Wave era – circa 1976 to 1983. The band are all accomplished musicians and have played in various original bands over the past 30 years or so, touring both nationally and internationally.
Forty Fiver though is strictly covers – recreated authentically and played just for fun.
With a basic set up of guitars, bass and drums some of the repertoire raises the odd eyebrow but careful arrangements cover most requirements and Kevin’s unique guitar style offers a suitable replacement for all manner of instruments!
Witnessed live you’ll get a set of predominantly well know songs but you can expect the odd obscurity too
Kevin Taylor - Vocals and guitar
Nick Moon - Vocals and guitar
Riko Burrows - Bass and vocals
Gary Must - Drums and percussion
A giant slice of 21st-century Essex attitude
HOWLIN' Wolf was the biggest, baddest, evilest bluesman ever to stalk the earth. There'll never be another like him...
WOLFPACK (that’s WOLFPACK in capital letters – but NEVER “the WOLFPACK”, please!) play the music of Wolf and other blues greats with understanding and a giant slice of 21st-century Essex attitude.
Singer, guitarist and harp player TIM AVES (Rockin' Armadillos, Automatic Slim), is joined by three-times British Blues Award-nominated guitarist JOEL FISK and ROB “Tank” BARRY (bass) (of Hokie Joint and LaVendore Rogue fame) and Essex shuffle king PAUL LESTER (drums),
The tough, scary blues of Howlin' Wolf is at the heart of what they do, but don’t expect slavish copies of the Chess originals. WOLFPACK play Wolf the way the big man would be playing it if he were in his prime right now, adding an ever-growing collection of outstanding original tunes to the mix.
Numerous appearances at festivals and clubs the length of the UK have cemented a reputation as an outstandingly entertaining live band with virtuosity to die for and a powerful, dynamic, nuanced approach which effortlessly makes an old music sound brand new.
