|Welcome To The Players Club, Burning Condors
Burning Condors are four London lads getting the scenesters talking with an exciting sound, which owes as much to the likes of Stray Cats and Eddie Cochran as to The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys. A rock ‘n' roll band in the best sense, their music has its roots in the stomping rhythms of rockabilly but is given a big kick in the arse by a punk attitude that has seen some label them as "punkabilly".
Having gone down a storm at many of the rockabilly and 1950s clubnights that have been springing up all over the trendy London scene, the band has found favour with a new generation of fans, sick of the never ending conveyor belt of sound-alike indie/rock bands. Not content with leading the new rise of rockabilly, Burning Condors have won respect from the most hardcore, purist fans. This was confirmed when the band were chosen to support renowned US rockabilly act The Legendary Shack Shakers at their 2010 London show. The Shack Shakers were so impressed with the intensity and freshness of Burning Condors' live show, they invited them to support them at their next UK shows.
In 2010 world famous bikers haunt Ace Cafe chose Burning Condors to perform at the Harley Davidson aftershow party. They were recently chosen as the featured band on the website of popular online clothing company Devoted2Vintage and modelled for them in their latest promotional campaign.
Playing music so intrinsticly linked to American culture, Burning Condors' hard hitting rootsy sound naturally draws comparisons to bands from the other side of the Atlantic. But whilst Burning Condors are influenced by American music and culture, what makes them unique is that they wear their London roots on their sleeves. No fake tales of San Fransisco.
Burning Condors are the real deal.
The boys are:
