Stone Gods - Silver Spoons and Broken Bones

The Stone Gods opened their account officially with the British public with the release of the riff powered single 'Burn The Witch' with all the hard copies selling out on the first day because the men in suits didn't have the balls to ok a good size batch of CD's from the factories... letís hope their balls have got bigger since then 'cause this debut album is going to be in equal demand.

First out will be the single 'Knight Of The Living Dead' on the 23rd June with its amthemic rock sound and blues licked lyrics backed by a chunky rolling riff that will do well in the jukebox but probably not so well on the charts. But the album itself which comes out two weeks later will put that all to right with its bakers dozen of mixed hard and soft rock tracks opening with the ball busting 'Burn The Witch' quickly followed by the speedy 'Don't Drink The Water', one thing that comes apparent is that this is a British rock band with it's natural tendency to create songs that everyone can join in and sing along to while the band hammer out the exciting brand of rock that is only learned from the ceaseless touring they have pushed themselves through this past six years, first as the Darkness and now as The Stone Gods with Richie taken over the vocals and proving a hidden diamond.

Track after track plays as the band scythe through their whole repertoire with a random nod to those that have come before, from a dark riff straight out of masters of reality era to the heavy pop/rock sound of the 21st Century musicaly these guys have it all, and with their strong grasp of lyric structure and rythm they display this with songs about releationshps as well as some political comments in the final song 'Oh Whereo My Beero'.. ok, ok its a bit of fun about drinking regulations.. but it's a start!

Silver Spoons and Broken Bones is going to be the start of a very new sound in the British rock scene, a British band playing rock that will appeal to everyone from 16 to 60, from the farts still playing their Animals and Who, to the first edition Purple and Zep listeners
through to the lads who think that Nickleback and Staind have the scene sown up.. move over 'cause the Gods are a coming.
