Topic: His Lordship

One of [my] best "finds" of 2022 so far, (see Next Gig thread..) thought it was about time they had their own dedicated thread as they're rolling along like a juggernaut...

Just got hold of their 2nd EP - All Cranked UP which follows roughly the template of it's predecessor except that the 6 tracks are all original Walbourne & Sonne numbers. I'd get in quick though if you want a copy, like the 1st EP, only 500 have been made; partly why I bent my vinyl prohibitions...

Also, just been announced that they are supporting Jason Isbell's European tour in the Autumn (Fall).


And here's proof that in a pressure-cooker of a gig, even the best can drop the occasional clanger:-

I liked the clanger..reminds me we’re just human after all.  James reminds me more and more of Dave Edmunds in his prime.
I will investigate the new EP and yes HL is the real deal.

Full agreement with the Dave Edmunds comparisons; one of the most overlooked guitarists this side of the pond.

And anyone who name-checks Duane Eddy deserves a pint at the bar... Interestingly, Duane Eddy did play on The Pretenders' Alone album back in 2016: produced by Dan Auerbach, it was originally slated as Chrissie Hynde's follow-up solo album (to Stockholm), so there's a bit of a cycle there...
