When Thunder Comes

WHEN THUNDER COMES is an ongoing original rock band that formed in 1983 by David Cawkwell and Mike Collins. They started as a wall of sound psychedelic underground band but evolved into other genres over the next 30 years. Thunder released 6 vinyl albums with incredible record reviews. Each album charted on college radio all over the us with some #1 hits like Dreaming. They also developed a underground following with the DJ circuit in Poland for years as well as Rock Pool in the US. WHEN THUNDER COMES headlined many shows and opened for great artists like: Lords of the New Church, The Ventures and Hot Tuna. In 2004 David Cawkwell and his 30+ year keyboard player, Harrison Tate, went back to writing some really big music projects. The incredible project titled, "Farewell Nostradamus" became their greatest achievement in sound, song quality, lyrics and a Med-evil Celtic Rock concept album that has 19 songs. Later in 2009 they released 500 Miles, yet another milestone in music craftsmanship with some very catchy songs. Some of the songs on 500 miles are a continuation of the Farewell Nostradamus concept story line which the main character, Derick Radcliffe who lived in the 15th century must visit Nostradamus and find the secret to break the curse from the evil sorcerer and Lord. In 2012 the international radio station www.lkcb.ca/ has put WHEN THUNDER COMES in full daily rotation which continues in 2013. Fall of 2013 will present some big concerts starting on Sat., Sept. 7th in NYC at the Bitter End.
