Fudge present: The Son Henry Electric Blues Band + The Real King Louie + Flameboy + Headlight

The Son Henry Electric Blues Band - www.myspace.com/sonhenry

The cynical old dog with a lap steel guitar and a volume problem brings his electric blues band back to The Moorings. Ex-Alaskan, now living in Scotland, Son Henry is, quite simply, a musician that lives and breathes the blues. This comes as no surprise to the legions of faithful, who know to turn out in all kinds of weather so they can be close to the musical fire generated every time this man picks up a guitar. In snowy Alaska, where the bars sometimes never close (and bartenders presumably weep) he's been know to enthral an audience until the sun-lit hours of the next calander month, when really they shouldve returned to their spouses and children or gone to work.

We could ramble on forever about the influences of Magic Sam and Muddy Waters, or list the countless gigs he's played all over the world - Son has made a startling range of styles his own, from deep soulful delta blues to loping Texas Shuffles. Original tunes that sound like they were written in decades past. But be warned! It's when the lap steel guitar comes out that you need to stand back.

The Real King Louie - www.myspace.com/iammadeoutofglue

The Real King Louie are a local four piece making their Moorings debut, and are also the side project of Contras bassist Tom. The band have resolved to dedicate themselves to exploring and intertwining smooth soul and reggae sounds with a Scottish edge, so settle into the groove and let the jazz-slash-dub envelope you like a, err, big tartan blanket?

Flameboy - www.myspace.com/blackmatteraberdeen

As always, the Black Matter dudes were looking for a way to spice things up for themselves, and thought what better way than to cool down their molten metal and go for an unplugged set? Nirvana, Eric Clapton, Alice In Chains they've all done it Now add Black Matters Flameboy to that list.

Headlight - www.bebo.com/Headlightmusic

Stepping up to bat at short notice after a band pulled out last week, we have Headlight. They play acoustic-based rock/pop and can mainly be heard practising in the New Deer Church Centre. Rock n' Roll.
