"E.P. review Rusty G's 'Cut off'"

Rusty G’s are:

James Finch: Guitar/Lead Vocals
Tom Finch: Bass/Backing Vocals
Dan Lopez: Drums

They’re a three piece Rock band from Milton Keynes. Having formed in 2007 – they’ve recorded 4 E.Ps including their latest offering: “Cut Off”. The band have played many high profile shows, won Battle of the Bands competitions and gained a loyal following through constant gigging.

Musically they fuse elements of Hard Rock, Blues, Prog, Grunge, Indie & Classic. They state their influences as ranging from classic bands such as Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Yes & The Beatles to modern groups like Nirvana, Blur, Foo Fighters, The Vines and Biffy Clyro.

I caught these guys live over a year ago at the Horn in St. Albans. I was impressed by their set and musicianship - but there was only a couple of tracks that really stood out for me and grabbed.

Now with the release of this latest 3 track E.P my perception of them has changed dramatically.

Title: Cut Off

Type: EP

Recorded: Grange Farm Studios in Cambridgeshire.

Held Down

Starts off quietly with the verse that has nice blues arpeggios & percussive cymbals - then leaps into a rocking, emotive - but catchy chorus. Blues Rock is the dominant force all through the track so has a nice 70’s Rock feel – also can hear 90‘s Indie.

Lost Words

Starts off similar to Held Down with the verse - contains slow paced drumming with bass and downstroke/muted guitar strumming - like Held Down the vocals remind me of Biffy Clyro. It then jumps into the chorus where immediately I hear the Grunge influence, especially the Vines. You would class it as a Grunge song but then you hear a Bluesy solo – giving the band their own style really.

Losing You

The opening guitar lick reminds me a little of Ocean Colour Scene - then the drums & bass kick in and I’m brought back to 70’s Blues Rock again. The vocals are quite different this time – more reverb and I can hear bands like Foghat and Ten Years After. Certainly this is the most classic sounding on the E.P. Groovy verses and bridge with a really rocking chorus.

They have created a very strong release here and I just hope they’ll reap rewards with the quality of output and hard work over the last four years.

Rusty G’s will be playing Dunstable a few times this year at the Kings Lynn and Saracen’s Head respectively. Be sure to check them out – I certainly will.

Rusty G’s - James Finch (Guitar and lead vox), Tom Finch (bass and backing vox) and Dan Lopez (drums and percussion) - formed late in 2007. They have recorded 4 EPs, completing their latest EP ‘Cut off’ in September 2010 at Grange Farm Studios.

It is quite hard to categorise the music but some would say there are elements of hard rock, blues, prog rock, indie, and just good old rock!

James tries to create songs that have their own unique quality and identity and that don't sound the same. The band believes this is vital to holding the audience’s attention throughout the set, and sets them apart from other bands that reside within similar genres.

James writes the music and lyrics and is heavily influenced by the old and new- old being bands such as Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis and The Beatles and new being the Smashing Pumpkins, Blur, Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, The Vines and Nirvana.

Rusty G's are an energetic band that love to put on a lively stage show. This is another aspect that the band believes to be vital in holding the audience’s attention. It's also great fun!

The band had a great year in 2010; winning the 'Fenland Battle of the Bands', and as a result of this, received prizes such as recording time, a photoshoot, festival slots and this website!

The band plan to continue increasing their fan base and get their music noticed further afield.

2011 is already shaping up to be a great year. The band will be performing their biggest show to date at The Sheffield Motorpoint Arena in February in support of charity.
