Fronted by Herford Music Festival director Kev Saunders, Hertford’s Los Ladrones de Amor have been going strength to strength over the last year with their melodic, ‘Latin Noir’ style of acoustic rock. Having played the iconic STRUMMER OF LOVE festival commemorating the 10th anniversary of Clash frontman Joe Strummer’s untimely death, the band are about to play another seriously exciting show, supporting kindred spirits and fellow Strummer of Love colleagues ‘country, rock, acid house’ band ALABAMA 3 (who probably best known for their song WOKE UP THIS MORNING, which was the soundtrack to The Sopranos).
Along with Los Ladrones and some more great bands are yet to be announced, Alabama 3 return to their second home at JAMM in Brixton for a night of messy Country Rock Acid House.
They’re not from Alabama and there’s not three of them but they did earn fame after being chosen as the theme tune for “The Sopranos”. They are also Irvine Welsh’s favourite band and The Guardian’s ‘Best Live Band’. Prepare for a night of weird wonderfulness with some of the best emerging acts from around the UK to support including LOS LADRONES
‘Since The Clash are no more, there’s no other band in the world we’d rather support than Alabama 3. They’re kindred spirits and they’re at once ironic, angry and irresistibly danceable and we can’t wait for this gig!’ says vocalist Kev Saunders. ‘We have to sell 70 tickets or pay for them so we’re imploring everyone we know to come along for what promises to be a brilliant night!
