The Great Leslie – Liquid Spells

This is a stomper of a track!

The Great Leslie come in all guns blazing with a tune that’s laden with guitar riffs that will get you rocking.

The thing that got me though was the pre chorus that has a harmony showing off the band’s vocal skills, the musicianship is pro level, but those harmonies are sweet!

The little bit of slap bass coming through is brilliant, as is the drumming nice and energetic….

Definitely a bit of a hit here!

The Great Leslie is a metaphysical, Bond-like, Spartacus-esque being, originally in the guise of Tony Curtis in his crowning role, and now personified by four ex-cons sent down for indecent assault after, loudly, and in unison, passing wind in a cinema. Made up of Ollie Trevers on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Ryan Lavender on Drums, Alfie Pawsey on Bass, and professional German, Freddie Miles on Lead Guitar, they have each attested that in another life they would be pirates if it weren’t for their crippling fear of water.

What a bio.
