Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
Troubadour Troy Redfern seems to be constantly on the road, honing his craft and bringing his own filthy blues to every venue with a stage big enough for him, a microphone and an amp.
An opening salvo from the forthcoming ‘Invocation’ album, ‘The Strange’ sees him in bristling form, its feral stomp bringing together T Rex and ZZ Top at their heaviest and hairiest.
Built on some slam-bang Glam Rock riffing and a huge portion of tasty slide work, this is an anthemic arena filler that should be played at every festival over the long-awaited Summer.
With a video featuring the monstrous groove of Nicky Waters drums and the irresistible bass and fire eating skills of Ash Dawn Clarke, it’s all one way to kick off 2024 with roar.
Taking no prisoners, Troy Redfern has all the class and balls to really kick some major dust storms up this year and that feels good.
