Product Description

CD Description

It was probably a good thing for Tony Newton, that rather than inheriting his dad s banjo skills, he instead got his hands on a bass guitar after one of his father s betting shop clients offered Newton Snr the instrument when he couldn t afford to settle his bill in cash. The resolution of the wager set young Tony on the path that would eventually lead him to find Rock N Roll redemption as the bassist and head honcho of one of the UK s most exciting hard rock bands - Voodoo Six. The band s first album - First Hit For Free - was released on Universal Music in Japan in 2007 and in the UK/Europe on White Knuckle/Locomotive Records in March 2008 with a new song Faith added and a brand new re-mix by uber studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc). Following the album s release, the band toured extensively in the UK in support of their first album, gaining new friends and fans everywhere they played. Summer slots at the Download Festival and Bloodstock Festival followed these dates. Then a full 6-week headline tour of the UK in September 2009 ensued before the band travelled on to Europe where they were the opening act for re-formed Boston rockers Extreme in October/November 2008. 2009 saw the band playing at the HammerFest Festival in March and followed soon after by a sold out performance at the Scala in London for their homecoming end of tour gig after a hectic twelve months of almost non-stop touring. In April 2009 vocalist Luke Purdie replaced Henry Rundell. Hailing from a blues/rock background, Luke had been playing guitar and singing since he was 10 years old and toured the world in his parents band when he was 15. His distinct vocals and remarkable voice fit perfectly with the Voodoo Six sound bringing rockier and raunchier vocals to the lyrics. Very soon the new line-up were writing and recording a follow up second album. Fluke? was written and recorded over the summer of 2009 and mixed once again by Mike Fraser taking time out between sessions with AC/DC. All the tracks were produced and engineered by Tony Newton. A digital EP was released in March 2010 A Little Something For You . To tie in with this Voodoo Six played their first live shows with the new line up, in London and Southampton both sold out. On the strength of this - and with the support of Planet Rock radio - Voodoo Six were asked to be special guests on The Union (Luke Morley) UK tour and UFO on their UK & European tour in March/April. After this the band put in a storming performance at the Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth Park to critical acclaim and recently appeared at Download 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluke-tastic 25 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
This cd title has many conotations attributed to it , but as to the musical content, this cd is indeed no Fluke it is in my opinion the rock cd everyone should have a copy of.
A long while in the making due to changes in the record company and line up, it delivers on all counts, ticking every box . It features tracks from the promo 5 track ep that was released earlier this year on download, different arrangements of some of the tracks, it also features tracks heard live on tour with UFO and their own headline Borderline gig last March , plus 2 tracks that I cannot wait to hear live in all their glory. The songs have the trademark catchy lyric hooks and melodies,but also huge riffs that take you back to the classic rock feel I love.
Opening with the familiar Luke growl of 'Create your world my Mother said when I was young' , the band launch into 'Take The Blame', which when first heard set the tone for the new Voodoo Six sound post First Hit For Free. Then follows the title track from the ep 'Something For You' keeping up the pace and quality, another terrific live song. 'Take Aim' is a work-around of the track that appeared also on the ep called 'Where You Want Me' which will give the crowds at gigs a good singalong, to my ears it carries a bigger sound on it. 'Like The Others Did' is a brilliant rocker , a fantastic guitar riff that hooks you from the start, Luke's vocal layered wonderfully in the track, a great band sound on this that will be a live favourite for years.

The most interesting track on here for me is 'Killer' a sole Tony Newton composition that initally when I heard it a couple of years ago was to say the least not a song I cared for, but it has been reworked and polished up with accompanying movie vocal clips at start and end to give it more gravitas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British! 21 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having followed this group for about 8-months, after seeing them live on a number of occasions earlier in the year, I was looking forward to the album release with a slight sense of anxiety. Too many groups today flatter to deceive, with one or two goods songs and then a selection of filler tracks. Not so Voodoo Six and Fluke. It's a cracking album from start to finish. I don't much care for ascribing genres to music, but these guys are playing classic, British rock. Great guitars, drums and a base line that Lemmy would be proud of.

Still not sure? Head over to their website where you can listen to the entire streaming album. Then, come back and buy it, and then go and see them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch modern yet traditional rock 19 Oct 2010
By Big Jim TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is definitely a resurgence in Britain of "traditional" rock, you know, guitar, bass, drums and a damn fine singer and this unsung band are probably as good as it gets. Much more relaxed, with better songs than the over-hyped Black Country communion, I particularly like the way that the bass especially is up front in the mix, giving them a meaty, dirty sound. I can only hope that the extensive touring these boys do gets them the acclaim they deserve, although Planet rock radio and Classic Rock Magazine seem to rate them. If they manage to get a couple of good slots on next year's festival circuit they could break through into the big time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic rock album 9 Dec 2010
By SW
Format:Audio CD
Saw these guys play Newcastle a few weeks ago and picked up an album then. Been playing it ever since - awesome songs and really think the new singer's voice suits the band. The songs are definitely of a "classic rock vein" - a bit like Black Stone Cherry all grown up. Excellent British rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluke? I think not ... 9 Dec 2010
By JaneyG
Format:Audio CD
Having been in London at V6's first gig with Mr P as front man this album has been something I have been looking forwards too for a long time. Glad to say I wasn't disappointed. Anyone who claims to be a little bit rock needs this CD in their collection, anyone who claims to be a lot rock will have pre ordered it along with the T-shirt :)
It has an old school sound with a newfound enthusiasm. I love it!
This band goes from strength to strength and deserves everything good that is coming too them.
Catch them live if you can they rock \m/

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe is WAS a fluke ?
The first album by Voodoo 6 was superb. A really impressive blend of metal and lyricism, visceral yet poingnant. I like "Fluke?" a lot - but it's not up to the same standard. Read more
