No Good Sons - "One Way Ticket "
Sometimes the component parts really do just fall into place.
Formed in Newbury in the U.K during 2015/16 The No Good Sons have hit the ground running.
Their debut album (Confessions of a Whiskey Soaked Past) went straight to the top of the Amazon rock chart. They outsold Metallica, Queen, Adele and Robbie Williams, all in the same week.
For a debut album with no tour to support it this was unprecedented. It reflected the rapport and backing they have built up with their fans and supporters in a very short space of time. In fact, their U.K. tour starts in London in March '17.
Some bands have found the difference between a drummer and a drum machine is that you only have to punch the information into a drum machine once.
Not so with No Good Sons drummer Mike Barbour. A percussionist and skinsman par excellence. Like the running drums of Moon and the fills of Peart he has a unique style, and, unusually for a drummer, in full flow he has a smile on his face. He is indeed The Keeper Of Time.
With Mike, and bass player Simon 'Thunderfingers' Catt  the No Good Sons have one of the most powerhouse rhythm sections touring today. Simon's style has been described as somewhere between Dusty Hill and Geddy Lee mixed with the sheer exuberance of Entwistle. He adds to the full and unique sound of The No Good Sons with a growling, hungry bass that sounds as though it's likely to fire off on a lead break at any second.
On Lead Guitar there's Martin Pawley (a.k.a. the Shredmiester). Noted for his two-fisted lead style that takes no prisoners. He can also instantly switch the mood with the most sensitive and soaring of licks.
Martin runs his own recording studio, and it was whilst working with the No Good Sons on their album that he joined the band. His addition completes the circle.
Ken Lingus. Vocalist and master of the rhythm chop. Singing like he means it, his vocals are reminiscent of Springsteen in full flow. From playing no-nonsense boogie to working the crowd it's all in a days work for Ken.
Four guys, drawn together by a love of southern style rock and a need to entertain. But above all to join with the audience and simply have a good time.
Having fun is the number one commandment for these guys....a two fisted rock approach with a whiskey chaser on the side.
