A string wizard who has drawn comparison with Bert Jansch, Roy Harper and Davy Graham is coming to Miss Peapod's on March 20th with his incendiary, raw acid-fried band...
Rick Tomlinson, formerly known as Voice of the Seven Woods, and his four piece band (including Keith Wood of Hush Arbors and Chris Walmsley who drums with Broadcast & Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals) arrive in Cornwall for one of a handful of shows in support of their new record which has been described thus...
“Krautrock rhythms, tape loops and guitar workouts that can only be described as blistering” 9/10 NME
“Named following the rare find of an 1870’s tome full of lectures on the apocalypse, Voice of the Seven Thunders is the new project from Rick Tomlinson… Infernal & primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim... this time round, multi-instrumentalist & sound sculptor Tomlinson introduces us to his fully-fledged rock group…already drawing comparison with bands from the heyday of 70’s acid rock & the likes of Amon Duul II, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, the early years of Pink Floyd & the Velvet Underground’s drone jams” Album of the Week - Rough Trade
“everything from crushing heaviness to Kraut drone while still maintaining allegiance to solitary acoustic virtuosity” Mojo Magazine, 4 stars
“Exceptional stuff” - 4/5 Record Collector
