**********************

If the Spanish town of Úbeda had its own rogues gallery honouring the misfits and outlaws whose boots had scuffed its dusty ground, three ‘Wanted’ posters would surely hang; a trio of mug shots simply referred to as Guadalupe Plata – the most deathly delta blues outfit to ever emerge from Andalusia.

Make no mistake – the music of Guadalupe Plata derives from the murkiest of depths. Channelling red hot passion for the blues into Hispanic roots, theirs is a sound that lingers in the sunset like a voodoo curse. Using flamenco terms, they describe their process as straining to be podrío; to be rotten, and talk of “involution,” “duende,” and “hechizo” – supernatural terms of invocation, and, well, goblins. But then again, that’s what you’d expect – concocted in a town famed as a location for Spaghetti Westerns, the band’s unique blues sits like a cowboy soundtrack pulled from a zombie’s grasp by the Mississippi Blues greats, Os Mutantes, and Jon Spencer.

Plus support from THE GOOD WATER

The Good Water unleash waves of gritty rhythm & blues. Drenched with obscure lyrical narratives, their unique psychedelic-soaked style of contemporary rock ‘n’ roll is an infectious collage of sounds.

Rob Clements is adept in combining phased analogue delay, fuzz fuelled guitar riffs and vocal phrasing simplicity to create melodic indie stompers.

Tom Fisher’s pounding drums are complex, punchy and infinitely reverberate, accompanied by diverse falsetto accents and tight vocal harmonies.
