Hipbone Slim And The Kneetremblers Ugly Mobile on LP
Hipbone Slim And The Kneetremblers is a band that plays proper rock 'n' roll! They take all the influences of original rock 'n' roll, rhythm 'n' blues, whatever you want to call it, and give it their own unique stamp and energy, with a garage band attitude and enthusiasm. They have somehow captured the true essence of rock 'n' roll in a way that very few have been able to do in a very long time.
The band is led by the ubiquitous Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), on guitar and lead vocals, a man who has been described as "Britain's string king: in reference to his wild and fiery guitar style, influenced by Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale and the like.
Harsh critics may single out their unwillingness to deviate from the primitive rhythm 'n' blues blueprint, but this would be a failure to understand the objective of the group. To put it simply, as already stated, Hipbone Slim & the Kneetremblers play rock 'n' roll music. And they do it better than pretty much anyone else in the UK right now, if not the entire damn world. Look no further than Ugly Mobile for the sonic evidence!
