What do they sound like?

They have the consummate hard rock precision of Iron Maiden’s guitarists, the song writing originality it takes to rise above generic genre-thieves, and the vocal dexterity and individuality to steal shows from far bigger headliners. Really genuine- sounding hard rock with all the trimmings: sleazy swagger, vocal harmonies, great solos, and singer sounds like Dave Lee Roth in places.

Who’s in the band?

Roachie (vocals), Twiggy (Lead guitarist), Phil the Beat (drums), Al Burdon (bass) Dan Lynch (rhythm guitarist/ keys).
Where are they from?
Newcastle upon Tyne

The Story so far:

Not too long ago, singer Roachie and shredders Twiggy came together with the sole intention of creating a band that had all the real rock ‘n’ roll grit of the bands they loved so much growing up: Gums N’ Roses, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. They nabbed themselves a drummer and, while so many London-based Camden posers fell by the wayside with substandard songs and shoddy musicianship, these Geordies upped the ante with this real-sounding retrock ‘n’ roll outfit.

Fabulously rocking new band, destined for a stadium near you!!! - Subba Cultcha

A band to watch and I am sure live they will be even better than on CD.
******* Get Ready to Rock. - Jason Ritchie

Caught an absolute blinding rock act last Saturday in Whitley Bay by
accident...I went to see another band that were on the same night...but this
band are mint. Total stage presence and class tunes. Check them out on
myspace and catch them live if you can.

"scream along rock n roll goodness"-CLASSIC ROCK” - Classic Rock

“'Road Religion' is an absolutely corking piece of classic sleaze rock, straight
out of the Salty Dog school of rock, which could explain how it's been
remixed by the legendary Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Guns N Roses).
They're also heading out to every public toilet in the country come
September, so get yourself down the front” – Metal4life - Metal4life

This was the Geordie sleaze rockers 2nd visit to RocK and they got a good
reception. Kicking of with 'Road Religion' front man Roachie and guitarist
Twiggy (or Jack Sparrow:) ) showed plenty of attitude to get the crowd
warmed up.
'Bite the Hook' is the guys first single went down a storm, plenty of groove
and heavy rock is just what you need on a Saturday afternoon and Fables
Last Stand know how to create the perfect party atmosphere.
The bands sleaze rock tracks were heavy enough to please the usual Katy's
crowd and the guys left behind a great atmosphere. The band have only
been together for 2 years and hopefully when they come back to Belfast they
will have some new material cause I could have happily listened to them all
day!! – Kickin Trix, Belfast gig - Kickin Trix

Fables Last Stand - Bite The Hook (End Of The Trail) – Big rock, big riff rock
– think Horse London, The Almighty, The Cult, 70’s style dirty power riff ‘n
raunch and things like Montrose or Starz or Hellcats or Starfighters and all
tattoos and sunglasses and... Sounds they’d kick up a storm live. – Organ
Magazine – Underground Music London - Underground Music London

Whatever you do, the sounds of the "Bite the Hook" single promises big riffs, a competent use of all their five members, and a clear understanding of rock and roll music. And as my dear readers know, if I say something’s that good, you should already be out there listening to it! - Is Hardcore Magazine - Is Hardcore Magazine

Fables Last Stand is a 5-piece North-East hard rock band. The rock is rolled in with a punk attitude and a modern image with musical influences from Guns & Roses, Led Zeppelin and Motley Crue, they are bringing real rock back to the noughties with frequent comparisons to AeroSmith.

Their music has crossed over the pond from the U.K to the U.S.A; this New Breed Ep was produced in Canada in Bryan Adams studio by Mike Fraser (Aerosmith, Guns N Roses, Biffy Clyro, Metallica, Led Zeppelin) and Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter). That very in-house mixing desk has had the legends that are The Beatles and The Rolling Stones music pumped through it and now the legends to be Fables Last Stand…..

Vocalist/songwriter Roachie and guitarist Twiggy are a powerful duo fronting the band, they have supported The Wildhearts and Steve Adlers (Guns N roses drummer) Alders Appetite UK & European tour. The band often incorporate burlesque dancers into their performance and have performed alongside the most notoriously famous of burlesque, pin-up, tattoed troops: The Suicide Girls and starred in Freakarama TV.

“Don’t Come Down Hard” is currently receiving airplay from BBC Newcastle, Total Rock & Bishop FM accompanied with a session and interview. Past releases have received radio airplay from 6 music’s Bruce Dickinson, Lauren Laverne formerly of XFM and Total Rock accompanied by a live session/interview. Video exposure has come from Kerrang, Scuzz TV and their debut single release “Bite The Hook” in 2007 charted on i-tunes downloads. In the U.S.A “Road to Religion” features on a compilation CD “Glam Nation” through 272 records which has lead to L.A student radio support. Another compilation CD one of the bands tracks featured on was on Classic Rock magazine “Sons of Guns” free cover mount.

With a much anticipated album coming in 2009 and a Japanese Manga record deal on the table to including merchandise rock dolls (hopefully not of the voodoo sorts), this band should never be just a myth or a fable to you…they are Fables Last Stand!!
