Next Show! The Hemlock July 29th!

204

Yes! We’re excited for this show. SF venues have gotten a little scarce but there are still great places to play and to go see solid bands. The Hemlock is one of those long standing dives that has somehow managed to not become an oyster bar or cheese shop, or a Parking garage although about a year ago there was some developer interest in that entire block according to this 2015 Article and we’re not sure what ever became of that so it is still a possibility that we could lose yet another staple to the SF music scene. The Hemlock  is also a great place to catch touring bands of the underground.

Friday July 29th we will be sharing the bill with Sweetwater Black  and The Electric Arrows  both from The Bay Area. We played with The Electric Arrows a couple of months back at Benders and they are a blast. There’s a short clip of them in action below.

Our next show is in San Francisco at The Hemlock with The Electric Arrows who we recently played with at Bender’s and they really smoke! Also Sweetwater Black will be on the bill with us.

We are also recording again, so stay tuned for more on that!

Recording!

It has been an unexpectedly busy week for us. About a month ago we were approached by a producer/engineer with a studio in Berkeley called Rehab Recorders he offered us a really good deal on some studio time and it was just enough of a spark to light the fire in us to begin recording our next release.tentatively titled ‘work in progress’. We’ve been working up some new material for the past year or so and have enough stuff to put together a full length. We’re not sure when this will be finished or how we will actually press something for our fans, but there will be music!

Enjoy a few clips from our first couple of days in production.

Visit our Bandcamp Site for ways to support our next release, there are cds, vinyl, t-shirts and prints of Wendy’s art all available direct from us!

Since releasing ‘First Stone’ last year we’ve been working up quite a bit of material and have enough to begin putting together a proper full length! Our approach will be different this time as we will likely not use a crowdfunding platform to back this recording, though we may consider it for the pressing if we can’t get anyone to back that part of it after we have the music ‘in the can’.

Realistically, we expect to have something ready by years end, in the meantime we’ll  be playing some shows and trying to push the merch we have now in order to contribute the funds needed to cover studio time, so any support is appreciated. On our Bandcamp site there are various ways to pitch in, including music, t-shirts and original art prints created by Wendy herself! This is a multi-media endeavor as Wendy’s art is as much a part of the project as the music.

Stay tuned for updates on the progress of the recording and once again, this Friday (6/17/16) we play the newly re-opened (under new management) Uptown Nightclub in Oakland CA with The Butlers and Los Sweet Bones!

Andalusia Rose ‘First stone Vinyl LP’ (Glimmerhawk Music/USA Import)

 “Out of the San Francisco Bay Area comes Andalusia Rose, a band formed around Wendy Lee Gadzuk – Vocals, guitar, Jeff Vengeance – Bass/Guitar and Paul Jarvis – Drums. They have been influenced by everything between the 1960s and 1990s, from rock to metal to blues to delta to gospel to whatever comes to mind musically speaking which was created in those decades. They were kind enough to sent me their 2nd EP First stone on vinyl and I must say that the included music is indeed rerminding me a lot of bands from the long but never forgotten golden era of music. I can mention all kinds of bands, because there are quite a lot similarities notable, such as Jefferson Airplane, Shocking Blue, Devil’s Blood, 70s Heart and such, but Andalusia Rose is creating their own kind of music in which rock, gospel, doom metal and blues are melted into one exciting sound. The vinyl record sounds very good and especially side B is exciting and offering some great material. Destroyer is by far the finest song on the album, a superb piece of classic rock meets blues meets doom metal as if Blue Oyster Cult, Jefferson Airplane and Black Sabbath had a child that started this wonderful band called Andalusia Rose. Although most of the songs are rock orientated, there are also influences from the already mentioned gospel, blues and even soul genres. This makes the band a very interesting act to check out and I am quite positive that in the future we can welcome even stronger release of this band.
