Product Description

Product Description

Out of the ashes of a hard living, touring Brit Art Rock band (whose name shall never be uttered to protect the innocent) stumbled Rosco Levee, founder of The Southern Slide. Taking advice from friend and contemporary Pete Molinari with whom he performed frequently, he travelled as a soloist and guitar slinger for hire, all the while realising that he wanted to make the kind of music he heard in his head and wanted to hear out in the world. Tunes which had been inspired by what he d heard growing up thanks to his Father who brought back heaps of vinyl from the States. Rosco wanted a band that played, drank, toured, wrote, lived, loved and laughed together and was ALL about the music, trust and the craic. He recruited lifelong friends Andy Hayes (guitars), David Tettmar (drums), hand-picked much praised bassist Simon Gardiner and pro keys player Lee Wilson...not content with that, he artlessly stole demon keys player, Mr Lee Spreadbury to share the duty.... 2012 saw them release their debut album Final Approach To Home which garnered rave reviews across the board, airplay on both sides of the Atlantic and saw the song Goldrush pick up the great Glen Campbell as a fan. This track was nominated for best original song in The British Blues Awards. Live reviews and features in most of the trade magazines followed as the band made their name with shows across the UK, Holland and Scandinavia. They then went back into the studio to record their much anticipated second album Get It While You Can which has taken them in a slightly different direction. It can best be summed up as an album of good hard rock n roll for today s ears, with a touch of modern Blues, in a Woodstock meets The Raconteurs kind of way. Recorded straight to tape, again at Ranscombe Analogue Studios in Rochester, Kent, the big sounds on this album show where the Southern Slide sit and what they do best. Rosco s influences are hints of Delaney Bramlett, Derek and the Dominoes, The Rolling Stones and the Allman Bros and yet he has a style of his own. Their unique Southern Slide groove permeates all tracks which are bound by finely crafted song-writing, insistent rhythms and fresh melodies allowing all the band to strut their stuff and shine big guitars, loud drums, driving bass, swirling hurricanes of Hammond soaked in a spinning Lesley cabinet and with a front man whose guitar work is drawing comparisons with Clapton and Kossoff and who has a stage presence reminiscent of Steve Marriott. This is a band at the top of their game and journalist, Moray Stuart said recently in Classic Rock Blues Magazine 'in this genre they are peerless'

Review

Rosco's guitar playing is on the money. It s hard to believe this collection of Southern-fried boogie is cooked up in Blighty. --Guitarist

Whiskey Blues Goodnight marries Stonesy swagger to Zep heft with enough skills to suggest that this Levee s gonna break into the big time certainly, when the dust settle in 12 months this ll doubtless be one of our best albums. --Classic Rock Blues

Rosco is a discerning, concise guitarist & makes intelligent use of a corking horn section, twin guitar lines & a storming rhythm section to combine, blues, soul & pop in ways most of the competition can t match. You'd swear he was from Louisiana - HiFi News; One of the best British rock albums you'll hear all year - Zeitgeist; Every track strikes gold. Fantastic - metaldiscovery.com; There's such a variety on this album that it stands way above the work of the purists & it sounds like the musicians are having a great time. --musicriot.com

Rosco Levee and Southern Slide – Get It While You Can
Before you press play sit back, strap yourself in and pin back your ears. Why? Because this band come at you like a freight train straight from the off and don’t let go across the albums 11 tracks.
This is mighty fine Southern Blues/Rock boogie mined from the deep wells of ………. Kent! Wherever Rosco and his compadres hail from they are drenched in the DNA and vibe of the deep southern states of the USA, and they have an innate ability to take the blue print and stamp it with their own contemporary interpretation. All tracks being original compositions.
Some Angels Fall throws down a huge marker, bursting from the speakers on a clipped fractured riff and low down rhythm section groove. Gambling Man steams in next a riotous romp of a tune splicing together some razor sharp honky tonk keys a pinned looping riff and a swagger of a groove.
You hit track 4 before the band even start to slow the pace to draw breath. Back to the Banks opens with a tasty melodic bright lead motif from Levee, urged on by the subtle but strong keys of Lee Wilson. And just when you think you have it worked out, in comes the brass section with some urgent flurries and another staccato clipped Levee riff. A real slow burner of a song that has a real groove going on and showcases the band’s influences and talents. Levee takes top billing with a superb demo of the art of slide guitar juxtapositioned with some sublime acoustic flourishes.
Whiskey Blues Goodnight is a real album highlight, an epic tune featuring some absolutely stunning slide work from Levee, I can picture the slide glass blitzing up and down the frets, underpinned by a pulsing rhythm section and urgent Hammond hooks.

41/2 stars really. Kent (UK) band leader and band sounding like they belong in the deep south with Lynyrd Skynrd, Allmans and the like. But no 'tribute band'-their own stuff really well played. Will get their first album. Play a lot more dates please in UK. Wow!!!!

BAck to the Banks has a feel of Black Crowes, but even more original. My favourite is When the Band starts to play which is like Rosco met a devil on the crossroads and plays like he needs to survive. It's not Budy Guy, but a true discovery, very very good album.
