LP version. The Excellos - Stompin' rockabilly and blues bop played hard and dirty. The Excellos deliver a solid brand of rockin' blues that'd be rough, tough and hard to bluff for any other band raised this side of the pond. Gaining their name from the famous 1950's American blues record label, they play with the authority and gusto of a blues band that grew straight out of the Mississippi mud. Hailing from good old London these guys have wowed the crowds at many blues and rock'n'roll joints the world over. Active for a good many years the line-up revolved around main man Craig Shaw (vocals, guitar, harmonica). A debut album was released in 2009 through London-based Rollin' Records. This album as well as several 7-es cemented their reputation as one of the hardest rockin low down dirty rockin-blues combos on this planet. A new line up consisting of Craig Shaw (vocals, guitar, harp), Garry Tyrrell Lynch (drums & bass) and Jake Allen (guitar & double bass - himself being a celebrated wild recording artist) finally recorded a bunch of tracks at Denmark Studios, Maidenhead, UK of which twelve made it onto the new album Rise Up! It took them seven years, but it was worth the wait. Again The Excellos launch into some truly rockin' R&B that really goes for the jugular.
