Kent rock band MAKER announce the release of their debut five track EP Move Your Feet. The band having debuted in Manchester in January at Rebellion, supporting Slydigs. Nigel Carr reports.
Slightly out of my normal sphere of gritty punk bands, Maker offer up pure blues oriented Rock ‘n’ Roll gold with this release which showcases five new tracks. The band features Alessandro Marinelli (Vocals), Andrew Donaldson (Guitar), Gavin Donaldson (Drums) & John Austin (Bass).
If you’d hoofed The Small Faces, Led Zeppelin and Lenny Kravitz in to a blender, seasoned with a sprinkling of Free and a dusting of Howlin’ Wolf, you would just now be getting a whiff of what this band is all about. Drenched in Blues and Rock history, but sounding as fresh as a plateful of popping candy, Maker hits their stride right from the off.
Title track Move Your Feet bolts from the trap with an explosive central riff while lead singer Marinelli looks and sounds like he’s dropped through a worm-hole from 1968. Rod meets Steve Marriott; it’s uncanny and the similarity intensifies as they sweep through the following tracks. The quality of these songs is outstanding and they even manage to incorporate a bit of honky-tonk piano on closer Get Me through!
