BRETT MARVIN AND THE THUNDERBOLTS
This collectors' item captures The Thunderbolts in full flight at one of north London's premier music venues of the 1980's. It's an essential archive addition for those who have appreciated their brand of British Electric Boogie Blues and Country RnB crossed with a nice dash of London Smart, and their considerable influence on the independent music scene over the last thirty years.
The place: The Bull and Gate, Kentish Town, London.
The date: 26th. of May 1981.
Re-mastered from a recently discovered bootleg recording, the Thunderbolts drive their set with excitement and immediacy. Even today they still play this special musical blend with the original line up of 30 years. Brett Marvin has become one of the most respected bands of independent rockers. Who else can sport such a long and unbroken history back to the late sixties? They have played with the best, sometimes even before they became the best. Their appeal and their obvious commitment come from the love of playing the blues of course. What puts them in a different league, and comes across in their playing, is an almost family commitment to each other, and to their many fans. A Brett Marvin and the Thunderbolts' gig may be the blues, but it's the blues with a big warm heart.
