We’re delighted to be working with Left Lane Cruiser for the first time!


This whiskey-fuelled three-man frenzy of blues-driven rock’n’roll noise straight from Fort Wayne, Indiana promise to hit you like a shock wave and show you a foot-stompin’ good time. Left Lane Cruiser feature Joe Evans on slide guitar and vocals with Brenn Beck on one big-ass bass drum, harmonica and a toolbox full of percussive gear.

Honing their craft while playing to house parties and on street corners of their home town, plus rehearsing in a heatless garage, they have developed their personal high voltage take on the North Mississippi Hill Country sound.

‘Left Lane Cruiser takes the collected knowledge that human kind has accumulated on blues, garage rock, punky garage and bluesy garage and compresses it into a dark matter that they then double barrel shotgun blast into your head’ – Green Bay Scene

Support comes from Bones Shake, a scuzzed, fuzzed blues three-piece from Manchester. They play everything into the red; violent bottle neck blues riffs, drums kicked, pounded and twatted ,and squeals of reverb drenched vocals all combine to help save your soul.
