Caught ex-Swervedriver vocalist/guitarist Adam Franklin at 50-capacity rock club The Cavern on Greenville Ave. last Thursday. Adam and his band tore through tracks from his solo debut, Bolts of Melody, including the set opener and Swervie soundalike “Seize the Day.” It was practically manna for us old Swervedriver fans — so imagine my surprise to find out that the group are getting together after a 10 year hiatus. Of course all the details are to be worked out. Expect a tour but no word on if we’ll get a new album from the Oxford pedal pushers. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Actually, with the high quality of Adam’s solo work like Toshack Highway and the excellent Bolts of Melody, who needs a new Swervedriver album? I highly recommend Bolts…as a matter of fact…click on the link below for a little taster.
