Hero. Legend. Good Bloke.
John Peel OBE, 1939 - 2004

Red Lick Records



 

 


Linton Music Festival 2008
Friday 20th June 2008



   The Revolutionaires                                     www.revolutionaires.co.uk
  
 (Ed Stephenson, guitar & lead vocals - Rich Stephenson, double bass & backing vocals
       - Gary Hoole, saxaphone & backing vocals - Mark Matthews, drums & backing vocals)     

A fine R&B band producing a tremendous set of 50s and 60s R&B full of Chuck Berry riffs which came through again and again. Absolutely Fabulous was their version of Riot in Cell Block No 9 which had everybody on their feet to boogie. So it went on, pure R&B with a well deserved encore Blue Suede Shoes. Lead vocalist Ed Stephenson was outstanding; playing harp on Eddy Boy Jump, piano on Jump for Joy, Been a Long Time and Boogie, and lead guitar on everything else - just amazing!  After the gig Ed briefly told us how influential Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Louis Jordan had been in his informative years and took time to translate his shorthand set list into English. Most appreciated Ed.

Slowburner                                                                                       www.slowburner.co.uk
 
   (Paul Bridgwater, vocals - Rob Newell, bass guitar - Mike Bannister, guitar - Izzy The Push, drums
      standing in for Colin Edmonds who was unable to be with us on the night)     

Saving the day as a late replacement for the now defunct Revelator Band, Slowburner again turned it on for all lovers of Blues-Rock. With a set mainly from the One Trick Pony CD the whole festival rocked along when, for a few memorable minutes, Paul Bridgewater thumped into Stormy Monday and a silenced crowd looked on in sheer admiration as this blues classic unfolded; so good it lingered with us as one of the  highlights of the festival.
