Non-stop Spanish rockers playing Bridgwater, Friday
12:28pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in What's On
In their mission to crack the UK rock scene, frontman Jacob A.M., drummer Danny Stix and guitarist Vega Valcarcel are pumping up to deliver one and a half hours of pure, unadulterated energy.
After making their name in Barcelona, the three-piece, who have played together since 2009, crossed the water to Somerset to set about making their UK mark.
Jacob A.M. explains. “We left Spain to try something big – if you’re not singing in Spanish in Spain, it’s difficult to get to that level.
"England and America are where most of the bands are that we love. We all listen to different things, but we love Jimmy Hendrix, Deep Purple, Uriah Heap, Cream... this country is always bringing out new music.”
When stopping for breath on their ever-expanding tour, the band live with heavy metal insider Donna Holton and husband Tim Spalding in Taunton.
The former girlfriend to Thin Lizzy’s Gary Moore and wife to Heavy Metal Kids’ Gary Holton, says: “Every place they play, everybody wants them back,” she says.
“When you hear really good musicians like these guys you have to bring them out and make them big.”
Away from the gig scene, the band’s second album, the 13-track Join The Party, is being mastered.
“Our job is to make everybody party,” says Jacob A.M. “We just want to make the people happy.”
Doors open at 9pm at the Palace Nightclub, Friday.
Entry is £5.
