November Updates and Photo Slideshow

Winter rapidly approaches and we’re in a bit of a transitional phase right now. We’re not looking at any shows at this point but we’re working up some newer material and should be back in the studio in the next week or so to continue work on our next record.

Wendy is also getting ready for a big move out to the desert in the next month or so. This will mean a lot less activity in the Bay Area as we won’t be as liberal in the shows we take on. We plan to shift our focus to getting on bigger shows and working toward getting overseas eventually.

Which brings me to our most recent bit of press from The UK. we re-blogged this last week from Zeitgeist/The Rocker but in case you missed it, here’s our bit of the review isolated. For the original post go to Here

ANDALUSIA ROSE
First Stone
independent

“Three years on from their debut and Andalusia Rose are back with some excellent female fronted throwback hard rock.

They’ve got a seventies rock bedrock topped off with some blues and soul influences which really allows the vocals of Wendy Lee Gadzuk to shine through.  The band are a sharp sounding power trio who also throw in some psych and fuzz into the equation and end up with a fine sounding racket.

Bassist Jeff “Vengeance” Klukowski and drummer Paul Jarvis certainly know how to drive a rhythm and on songs like the title track and “Destroyer” the groove is quite amazing.  They lose direction a little on the last two tracks, especially on the cover of “The Rose” but they’re the kind of band that could and should rip a club to pieces.”

From a recent review of  ‘First Stone’ on itunes:

Real Music!!: by Mikeymac420

“I heard “Let It Shine” on an alternative college radio station and recorded the song on my phone to sort through the lyrics and figure out who it was later. I can tell you with all my heart I am so glad I did and it was worth the half hour search. The whole album is killer. I would have bet this was some untapped gem from 92′. But its barely a year old which gives me hope for the future of music. Great, great stuff. Can’t wait for more to come!!” (Mikeymac420)

Last Sunday Wendy and Jeff went down to Ye Olde Mission District in SF to chop it up with Malderor on his show Malderor’s Curated Catastrophe. We covered everything from the origins of the band to some influences on our sound and the art of it all. We both brought a stack of music, mostly vinyl and had a blast spinning some of our favorite music. As an extra special treat we even offered a ‘sneak listen’ of some of what we are currently working on. We were also joined by DJ Deathwish who added some humor and also has a show called Cheap Hooch on Radio Valencia.

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!
