Blues Album Of The Month – Cyril B. Bunter Band
February 7, 2018
By Colin Briscoe
It’s a sure fact that most of us say often, how time flies. This can be said of one of the long awaited releases by one of Australia’s iconic blues bands, the Cyril B Bunter Band.. as it’s been over 30 years.
Starting out in the early seventies from the Sydney pub circuit to touring nationally, the band has built a solid reputation for the best in boogie and blues and most importantly always giving out to their fans, a 110% real good time.
Through the years the Bunters have completed many national tours and supported some of the world’s legendary artists such as George Thorogood, John Mayall and Canned Heat.
The Cyril B Bunter Band is now a real force again delivering an outstanding album, their first since 1985.
Loco Motive brings back to life those brilliant times with their 3 founding members namely, Jimmy Bee in fine voice and bass rhythms, the magic of Gary Lothian on lead & slide guitar and the powerhouse beat of the groove-king, Rosscoe Clark.
In recent years performing at major festivals around the country and on the new album, the band has gained a shining light in the killer keys of Ali Penney. The new release also features the excellent saxophonist in Dave Wray.
Look out for Sydney’s exponents of the real good boogie, the Cyril B Bunter Band with their upcoming live gigs and the music and passion that we love from them with their powerful brand new release, Loco Motive.
