The best kept secret in music


"'Wake Up Call' - Single Review"

“Not sure about bouncing bombs but boy this little rocker gets you bouncing around your room! It features a huge guitar riff and in your face vocals. Steeped in classic rock yet with a nod to the Foo Fighters and others, a band to watch and I'd be keen to hear more…” -– Jason Richie

"Get Ready To Rock!"

“If they play their cards right, the raw guitars and angst-laden lyrics will be a winner on both sides of the pond - a rarity these days for UK bands that have plumbed new depths in the form of Busted and McFly; in Reculver we may have found our Lion-O” - – Sam Wilkes -

"The Passion & Glory"

“Powerful, emotional, sung with passion and played with glory, I can't wait to hear the full album when it's finished. This band will most certainly be the big thing in 2006” - – Linda


“With 'Wake Up Call', Reculver' have unleashed a thunderous slice of anthemic grunge flavoured rock, sure to crush heads, break legs and start moshpits. Rock! 5/5” - – Andy

"Super tite!"

“The excellent Reculver headline tonite - and this band are super tite - a discipline which certainly gives them their edge -along with some simply brilliant songs that are instantly memorable (If you have not heard "Sharp Sand" you are really missing something). This is superbly delivered rock, with lashings of guts and enough commerciality to be instantly rewarding” -

"Cool As Ice"

“A perfect combo of classic heavy rock and blues grunge- Reculver are the perfect embodiment of grunge-inflected and seventies-flavoured emo-rock. In the hands of lesser mortals, these monsters of rock stylings might sound jaded, but Reculver hatch a plot so fresh it sounds like they created it this morning. Without breaking a sweat. Cool as ice” -

"Will Go Far"

“The band is full or raw energy, powerful sounds and head nodding stage presence. Reculver will go far once the door is opened” - - AL Douglas

"Niche Market"

They are very tight musically and seem to be aiming for both the metal and indie markets. Bands like Foo Fighters are creating this niche between rock and indie and Reculver seem capable of following. It’s controlled aggression and I like the lyrics as well. Too many bands these days seem content to write about nothing. - Darryll King, Preston (DJ) 8/10

Feeling a bit camera shy


Reculver are a modern rock band from the wilds of southern Kent (UK). Formed in 2003 by cousins Luke and Simon Purdie with rhythm section Jarrett and Jimi August. Musicians drawn together through a common hard rock heritage coupled with an ethic of musical freedom.

The bands core is the upshot of a life long friendship between cousins Luke and Simon, enhanced by long term collaboration with drummer Jarrett. Playing together in various groups for several years they have honed their skills and sound into a unique identity.
