Soul Brother

by The Hot Sprockets

The Hot Sprockets hail from the delta blues mecca that is…Dublin. They are five friends who came together with a shared love of Rock N’ Roll music…The kind of Rock N’ Roll music that is haunted by the ghost of country and blues…

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Having won the King Kong club and de-camping to Serra Vista studios to record their debut album “Honey Skippin’” with Boz Boorer (Morrisey, The Polecates) at the helm, The Hot Sprockets have taken the music scene by the balls. A phenomenal live band, the past two years have seen these smart blues-rockers play over 200 gigs including support slots with The Zutons, The View, Divine Comedy, Ida Maria, Peter Hook, Republic of Loose, BP Fallon and a rake of festivals including Indie-Pendence, Castlepalooza, Sea Sessions, Vantastival, Arthurs Day, Mannifest & Electric Picnic.

Their music has been used on everything from Bulmers ad campaigns to BBC’s comedy “Fresh” and various RTE programmes. They have also had appearances on RTE, Tv3, TG4, 2FM, FM104, 98FM, Spin 1038, Nova, RTE Radio 1, Newstalk, Phantom fm and many more. The bands video for “Cruisin’” was recently nominated for “Best video” & “Best group” at the Irish Music Television Awards.

The Hot Sprockets are living up to their early promise and have delivered a mighty debut album “to be listened to in the spirit in which it was made”. Their kind of Rock N’ Roll music is haunted by the ghost of country and blues – take the good-time revolutionary spirit of MC5, simmer it down to the sounds of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, add some rough-edged Eagles of Death Metal and you are somewhere near the sonic nugget that is The Hot Sprockets.

Press:

“With a pile driving rhythm , the title track recalls both the Stones Let it bleed-era and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at their demented finest. Honey Skippin’ is a triumph for all involved” Colm O’ Hare, Hotpress

“I think it's a brilliant single{Honey Skippin’}. They're one of those bands that when ever I come across any of their tunes, I just presume they're going to be good!” Dan Hegarty, 2fm

“Honey Skippin’ is a really, really, really good debut. The sheer exuberance of the record is infectious!” State Magazine

“…great tunes and a fantastic album. 6 out of 6” musicreviewunsigned.com

“Another delight of the year came from The Hot Sprockets. They are a grassy, dirty rock band and 2011 saw the release of their debut album, which they launched in The Village with an outrageously rocking gig” Clare Kane, Indiesight

“{The Hot Sprockets} Some good new-fashioned R’n’R...really laid back, gravelly, poppy (!), groovy, and frequently, arse-kicking-foot-stompin’-tastic. If you don’t have a convertible, buy one; drive to the USofA and hammer on down Route 66 with the volume turned up to ‘hell yeah!’ ” Jump!

“If you like good aul rock ‘n’ roll, some blues and some damn fine decent music – then you need to check out The Hot Sprockets live while also purchasing their debut album!” musicscene.ie
