Formed in Scotland in 2007, Lord Rochester is probably the best and most genuine pure ‘n’ primitive rhythm & blues combo from the British scene in the last years. Their sound, obviously inspired by the raw late 50’s Chess sound -especially Bo Diddley- is a breath of fresh air, full of energy and great savoir faire.
The band is commanded by the legendary Russ Wilkins (Pop Rivets, Milshakes, The Wildebeests) on guitar and vocals and crewed by the charming Lady Muck on bass and vocals, and the elegant Siberian Tim on drums and vocals. From their influences the sound of this original trio is surprising and authentic, and they have convinced the majority of the underground scene. After a successfull spell in London and Scottish pubs, they released their first album, Hey! In May’09. Their performances guarantee passion, a great sound and elegance.
