On Tuesday October 14th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers back to Sheffield for another round of England v Italy when they go head to head again with local boys Roaming Son. Stiv & Co. will be touring the UK in support of brand new album Banks Of The Lea. More old friends making a welcome return will be Tsar Nicholas III & The Exiles who open the show at Shakespeares. Advance tickets priced at £5 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/284999 or entry on the night will be £6. Doors open 8pm.


***ROAMING SON***

Roaming Son are a Sheffield based band that mix earthy heartfelt vocals with twangy dirty guitars, greasy bass and jungle drums to create a sound that is influenced by the classic rock’n’roll recordings of the 50′s / 60′s but while adding a distinctive modern flavour. From brash to beautiful, the sound of chainsaws & rainbows. In 2013 the band released debut EP ‘History Of Violence’ and were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the Sheffield Scenester awards.

***STIV CANTARELLI & THE SILENT STRANGERS***

Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers are back, building on the success of their critically acclaimed debut Black Music / White Music with more post-punk revolutionary blues.

Having recorded their debut in an abandoned church amid the isolation of Italy’s Romagna hills, Stiv and the band decided to up sticks for the city for their next project; specifically the super-trendy environs of Hackney Wick, East London – on the banks of the River Lea – where they holed up in the infamous Gizzard studio with producer Peter Bennett (founder of Monkey Island, The Dublo and Morning Bride) and studio owner/engineer Ed Deegan (Billy Childish, Mudhoney, The Fall, The Cribs). In a nod towards the stripped down Thames Delta sound of Dr Feelgood et al, Dave Dulake, landlord of Southend rock’n’roll boozer The Railway Hotel, was also on hand to lay down some barrelhouse piano.

The result eschews much of the gentle Americana of their debut album, the band now immersing themselves fully in the dark and savage blues that they’d only just begun to hint at on record, but that had already made their live shows a thrilling and cathartic ride. If you’re thinking The Gun Club, Thin White Rope, The Scientists or Gallon Drunk, you’re getting close.

Stiv Cantarelli initially came to prominence as leader of Italy’s number one alt.country band Satellite Inn, who were recruited by North Carolina label MoodFood as a replacement for the ascendant Whiskeytown. Touring the States intensively, Cantarelli became firm friends with Portland, Oregon roots legends Richmond Fontaine, which has led to him releasing several records on their El Cortez label and employing them as his backing band on his solo debut Innerstate. It was this connection that found him at the wheel of a tiny Fiat beside Bob Mould for an Italian odyssey during the miserable winter of 2009. In the Silent Strangers, Stiv is joined by former Satellite Inn rhythm section Fabrizio Gramellini (bass) and Antonio Perugini (drums) along with new member Roberto Villa (guitar and sax).

***TSAR NICHOLAS III & THE EXILES***

Image

Tsar Nicholas III & The Exiles rose from the ashes of former Leeds bands ‘The Silver Tree Club’ and ‘Tenderloin’. Frontman Nick Wallace and guitarist Don Mort experimented with different line ups and instrumentation including accordion, ukelele and banjo before settling on the current incarnation. After adding Joel Smith on bass and Danny O’Neil on drums, Joel’s basement became the creative hub of the project, serving as a studio, rehearsal room, pub and padded cell. Out of that melting pot of ideas and personalities came their understated debut album ‘Letter of Marque’.

Whilst still being based around the gutteral narrative of Nick’s voice, follow up ‘King Of Corners’ took a different turn with the addition of Toby Wiltshire on sax, keys and anything they find that makes a good noise. The sound now is more raw and stripped down taking in moments of free improvisation, the energy of the blues and dark brooding songwriting. The obvious comparisons are made with Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash but imagine they were from the North of England and grew up with acid house and cheap Netto Scotch and turned that experience into something thrilling and feeling and melodic and powerful. The live shows are loose, edgy, raucous and never the same twice.
