The Jokers Hurricane on LP
As diverse as international rock'n'roll music presents itself today, as many twists and turns as it may have taken in the past 50 years: whenever this brand of music comes from the UK, it automatically appears to have an unmistakable British flair. This may well be due to the fact the Britain is considered to be the birthplace of rock music and can look back on a centuries-old tradition of that genre.
Because really: what would the world be like today without Led Zeppelin, without Free, The Who and the Stones? A question which The Jokers from Liverpool like to answer in their very own way. Hurricane, the third album by the four-piece surrounding vocalist Wane Parry and guitarist Paul Hurst leaves no doubt where their roots are and where their direction is taking them.
"The style we play is ‘big rock', that sound and feel runs through all our albums," Hurst explains, adding: "Groove, riff-based songs with a strong top-line vocal melody and hooks. With Hurricane, we have still maintained this sound but tried to capture more of the raw live energy of the band in the recordings." An energy which oozes through all 12 tracks on the explosive album!
