Blues rock seems to be the current sound, according to the stylings of great new bands playing in my hometown, Falmouth in Cornwall.
There is also a tendency towards folk rock with a unique twist of Gaelic fiddle playing, such as The Imprints, winner of Battle of the Bands (twice I think) and now living in Bristol.
Great new bands have included:
- Cough Syrup
- Lost Dawn
- Bite the Buffalo
Gnarwolves have been played on Radio One’s new ska and punk show hosted by Mike Davies
Bite the Buffalo: (BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury)
Plus Cornwall’s own Back Beat Sound System (reggae 7 piece from Cornwall)
