Hold tight for a UK music explosion as home-grown Brit four piece – PEYOTE – smash onto the scene with a fusion sound that is being dubbed as a rock’n’roll revolution. Following in the footsteps of music legends The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin by recording their first album in rock star Ronnie Lane’s mobile studio, PEYOTE bring us a fresh fusion of rock’n’rolll, punk and blues as they launch their debut single, ‘Quite Like It’, on May 20th with their debut album ‘Quite Like It’, out Summer 2013.
Peyote are already creating a media buzz as the band get set to perform at the Shoreditch Fashion Show 2013 on April 27th, where they have partnered up with a host of London’s top fashion colleges to showcase their best designers. The event will be judged by Mischa Barton, Eliza Doolittle and Oliver Proudlock, and is set to be supported by a line-up of emerging artists and a host of journalists, bloggers, brands and celebrities.
Peyote is made up of vocalist and rhythm guitarist Joseph Little (20), lead guitarist George Wilse (20), bass guitarist Tom O’Reilly (21), and drummer Andrew Squance (20). The boys met while studying music at Bath Spa University and instantly bonded over a mutual love of Quentin Tarantino films and soundtracks.
During a self promoted and self organised UK tour in the summer of 2012, the band were approached by senior music business aficionados and management who, struck by their exciting live delivery, catchy songs and retro sound, arranged for them to record their debut album using the legendry Ronnie Lane Mobile (LMS). This gave them access to equipment used by the likes of The Rolling Stones for their ‘Black And Blue’ album, The Who for ‘Quadrophenia’, Led Zeppelin for ‘Physical Graffiti’, Eric Clapton and Bob Marley,. Peyote used the original ribbon microphones from the 1930’s in addition to other vintage equipment, such as an all-original 1966 Marshall Blues-breakers amplifier.
The chemistry of band talent, location and vintage equipment created an incredible sound cocktail that smashes all genre moulds. Peyote recorded the album in just four days, echoing methods of old music creation and producing a sublime analogue sound recorded in single takesfrom the shiny chrome Airstream mobile.
‘Quite Like It’ is an album bursting with high-speed vibrant energy as tracks such as ‘Shoot Me’, ‘Working Girls’ and ‘Dirty Little Mind Games’ explode with punk rock’n’roll vigour, whilst interludes of mellower moments weave their way into the fabric of the collection with the likes of ‘Life That I Love’. With such a unique sound, distinctive vocals and gripping lyrical content, ‘Quite Like It’, accelerates the past fantastically and is a sure fire ‘classic’ of the future.
If you fancy jumping on what’s promising to be an extremely successful bandwagon, then be one of the first to see the Peyote live when they next play in London on May 11th at Camden’s Barfly. You’ll be glad you did!
