Magic Eight Ball

Review: At present this band has a rolling line-up of fellow musicians and friends of lead singer Baz FRANCIS (lovechild of David BOWIE and Rick (Rik Mayall) from the The Young Ones. Sometimes including Andy COPPER and Michael GATES. Its great to find a frontman who's not afriad to be upfront. He seems to love nothing more than striding off the stage (when possible) and  striking a pose, with his guitar, while effortlessly playing a wicked riff. Baz is also in sole charge of songwriting for the band. In his material I can hear strong echoes of the aforementioned Bowie, Guns N Roses, Queen, with a little dash of early Genesis. They demonstrate how rock should flow, taking the listener on a musical journey down river.

Magic Ship

Review: This 4-piece band from Twickenham has Colin Gillman (vocals and guitar), Sam Day (guitar and vocals), Adam Donovan (bass guitar), and Dave Lombardi (drums and percussion). They play classic rock with a twist of Americana, but performed with an English accent. The band name comes from the title of a song by 60s band Free. Starting out as just a few guys having fun playing at the rehearsal studios on a Monday night (instead of going down the pub), its now become a lot more serious. They have recently released their debut album "LoveTel Motel" on the Stone Island Record label and available at gigs.
