THE GREASY SLICKS
The Greasy Slicks are Jack Kendrew on guitar and vocals, drummer and vocalist Rian O’Grady, and Nathan Rasdall on bass. They absorb elements of grunge and blues as a means to establish their own sound whilst delivering powerful live performances, executed with precision and distinct groove.
The most important thing to this rock and roll three-piece is playing music that they want to play – and playing it live. Catering to the masses and jumping on fashionable trends are of little importance to The Slicks; playing real, honest rock and roll is what matters most.
Having toured abundantly over the last three years, this band is a tight‐knit, dynamically intricate machine, producing records that manage to capture an energy and maturity far beyond their years. There is no sole contributor, but instead each member devotes individual strengths to the collective procedure.
Off the back of the bands recent debut album release and headline European tour, TGS head back out on the road this December to play a run of headline dates across the UK.
The Greasy Slicks have youth on their side and, in the age of the throwaway band, truly bring something different to the table.
Tipped by Total Guitar as one of their favourite new guitarists to hear in 2016 for the “epic electric odes and spacious Americana” found on her previous 'The Fault Line' EP, Charlotte has also received acclaim from NME Magazine, Best Fit, Clash, described as being “a young artist capable of applying an enormous impact”.
Her forthcoming EP released June 10th 'The How Are We Ever To?' EP comes indebted to the blues, as Carpenter turns her articulate song writing to a deeply personal experience. With early support from Edith Bowman at Virgin Radio and Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, It’s an intimate story told first hand, peppered with the kind of delicate nuances you’d expect from PJ Harvey or Cat Power, scorched with feeling.
