SPLENDID REVIEW OF 'YOU DESERVE TO BE HERE' FROM SWALLOW THE MIND: http://swallowthemind.tumblr.com/post/97728968798/album-review-you-deserve-to-be-here-by-the-roz-bruce
They mix wahwah/fuzz driven rock with punky overtones and distinctive vocals and produce a highly likeable and infectious sound.
With some standout tracks like ‘Social Freak’ and ‘Secret Life’ which see Roz displaying her guitar skills and at all times backed by the solid and tight backline they set the scene and the tone for the evening."
"Lead-lady, Roz, is a formidable musician, playing her guitar like a female Hendrix (including briefly playing the instrument with her teeth), and yelping like Siouxsie (of the Banchees) at times. The rest of the band are darned good musicians too. The style is guitar-mangling alternative / psychedelic rock. Lyrically, she’s a bit of social commentator, for example, with songs dealing with socially difficult situations and alcohol problems. The frantic final song, “Wicked While”, is particularly impressive. The band has an album coming out soon."
a bagful of Alternative Rock, Psychedelia and more than a touch of Catharsis... Inside a Trembling Teapot, and something like 'The Roz Bruce
Infusion' will pour out!
A 3-piece band consisting of Roz Bruce on Lead Vocals & Guitar, experienced and brilliant musician Gaf Evans on Bass, and Dominic Dillon – ex-drummer of psychedelic/shoe-gaze band 'The Telescopes' on Drums.
"The wah-wah gives her music an intense 70s psychedelia but her riffs dip into bluesy rock and lyrics trail into disconnected melancholy." - Electric Banana
"Roz nearly knocked me off my chair with her dark, twisted and beautiful songs." - Off Beat Magazine
"Roz Bruce - plays like Hendrix, looks like a dream" - Nik Turner
