The Last Days Of Rock & Roll by The Snakes

We’re pleased to announce our latest new release, coming to you in May is The Last Days Of Rock & Roll by The Snakes (BoB 131)

Over the last ten years, The Snakes have become known as the bad boys of British country, with their guitar fuelled rock & roll, Uncut called them ‘Muswell Hill’s own Whiskeytown’ after their appearance on the Clubhouse Records’ compilation Divided By A Common Language.

This third album from the band sees them expanding on their established alt-country repertoire from Stonesesque country swagger through soulful Celtic folk to the dirty rock & roll of Mott The Hoople and Mink Deville, sharing a bottle of bourbon with Tom Petty and Bob Dylan along the way.

The Last Days Of Rock & Roll is not a lament, but a declaration of defiance in an age of intangible downloads and disposable talent shows. It expands on its critically acclaimed predecessor Sometime Soon, with added violin, sitar, saxophone and pedal steel plus a special guest appearance from Redlands Palomino Co. singer Hannah Elton-Wall on the dynamic opener ‘Too Hard’.

Look out for preview tracks coming here soon.
