Andalusia Rose on Radio Valencia!

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.

Another thing we spoke about was our new favorite local band The Electric Arrows who we recently played a couple of shows with, most recently at The Hemlock. Check out some of their brand of Soulful music in this collage of clips from that night, shot by our bassist Jeff.

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!

Updates (June 13, 2016)

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!

Strutter Zine (reviews First Stone)

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. Meanwhile, check them out at: http://www.andalusiarose.com

(Points: 8.1 out of 10)

Our next show is with The Butlers and Sweet Bones at The Uptown (recently re-opened) in Oakland Ca. June 17th!

SORROW KNOWS

A Tribute to Jeffrey Lee Pierce and The Gun Club

Shortly after we did that epic show with LA’s The Flesh Eaters our bassist Jeff was approached by our ‘First Stone’ producer Eric Moffat about a show he is putting on in honor of Jeffrey Lee Pierce and the music of The Gun Club. The connection being that our bassist Jeff played with Chris D. (Flesh Eaters) who co-produced the First Gun Club record and also took the infamous image for the Miami album cover… Jeff will be handling bass in 2 of the main line-ups and Wendy was also tapped to sing a couple of songs as well! This will be a star studded event with many notable Bay Area musicians and special guest of honor Kid Congo Powers (original Gun Club member) will be joining us to make it a real family affair! Other musician of note are Peter Case. Tom Heyman, Mark Eitzel, Spike Slawson, Jon Weiss, Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless), Rykarda Parasol, Penelope Houston, Greg Dale, and many more!
