Feeling a bit camera shy


With so much talent emerging and so many new styles of music seemingly being invented, there’s one band The Revivals that have gone back to basics to when British Rock was at it best – remember Rock n Roll vintage Rollin Stone’s / Led Zepplin style – it’s back, louder than before…..

Four working class lads - bursting with talent, enthusiasm and their very own brand of Rock n Roll - Try putting them into a category at your peril. With their varied sound and ability to slow it down or speed it up, The Revivals have all things Rock under one roof.

Perthshire based band The Revivals – Hutch, Dave, Stu and Skinner (two Scots men, an Englishman and an Ozzy) have built quite a following from a series of knock-out gigs around the country. Whilst making legendary Perth Rock venue The Twa Tams there second home….

After an initial stint with a band he felt was going nowhere, front-man Ian Hutchison decided to rip it up and start again.
He kept his tried and trusted drummer Mike Skinner and auditioned for a new lead guitarist and skilled bass player.

Call it fate, call it luck – whichever way you look at it Stuart Methven and Dave Shaw were recruited after impressing.
The name of the new band was discussed and The Revivals were born.

Their sound, as the name suggests, revives the best traditions of high energy rock n roll and has been described as “Led Zeppelin meets Americana” MCPS Dave Arcari.

The band have been creating quite a buzz in the press resulting in many reviews and are awaiting several features in the coming months. Hugh Fielder senior review editor of major rock publication Classic Rock commented “This is a confident debut album from a band destined to make a name from themselves”

“Our influences are wide but essentially our sound’s inspired by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crows, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lynard Skynard and the rest,” says Ian Hutchison (lead vocals, rhythm guitar and song writer).

The Revivals have gigged constantly, up and down the country, sharing the bill with Shaun Ryder & (Pete, Keith) The Farm, The Zutons, Cosmic Rough Riders, Pipeline and the Endrick Brothers and have June dates imminent with Left Field stage headliners Sonic Audio @ The Liquidroom as well as a night in King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut with The Casuals.

The band gets better and better and at the same time more determined to
succeed and make their music heard to a wider audience.
Live – their 100% guitar driven Rock n Roll will blow you away !!!!
