West Thebarton are a seven-headed soul-rock hydra, straight out of Adelaide, this slightly-slack true-blue rock septet are into having a real good time. Led by charismatic leader figure, gravel-voiced frontman Reverend Ray, West Thebarton have spent the past few years honing razor sharp riffs, sticking them soundly to seriously tight melodic tones, and careering into bars, festival bills and best of lists.
West Thebarton head to Britain after their forthcoming national tour. We're just trying to write the best song possible," says guitarist and percussionist Brian Bolado, "and we just wanted to make the best record we could. After their forthcoming national tour West Thebarton make their debut in Britain with a series of introductory gigs and festival appearances. Having just received the vinyl pressing of their album – "it's the closest we've come to holding our own children," notes Bolado – a band founded on the pleasure of playing together is notching up milestones and changing perceptions of their hometown. Adelaide is often considered a backwater or afterthought, but a lot of great music stems from here: this is where Paul Kelly and Barnesy grew up," Bolado says
