Royal Blood

Royal Blood is a two piece band, that lost their guitar player to the ministry, after being possessed by the spirit of Ron Hubbard. He was last seen rowing a boat out to sea, after being arrested by the  Brighton police for drunkardly pissing on a bed of flowers by home of Denise Cobb, the mayor at that time. When the guitar man left to pursue the realm of Scientology, the band trudged on despite the impending perilous doom of performing without the electrical bliss, a six string guitar adds to Rock and Roll. Mortal men would have trudged the same path that all bands had walked before and put an ad in the local rag for a replacement. These are not mere mortals, for The Lord of Flea had descended from the Heavens and graced the mind and hand’s of Micheal Kerr. He is faring a bit better than the spaceship bound six stringer.  Ah, shucks, if I could only create as well as these two, these musings might be a bit more fit for human consumption :). (Apology to Scientology theology. )

These fellas have gotten a bit of good press on The Island, so they are not as underground as the usual around here, but underground enough that most have yet to hear their creations. They will probably be compared to Jack White, and maybe the Black Keys, since every two person band probably hears those comparisons eventually.  These jams are a monsoon to desert ears. Let the rivers flow.  A bass and a drum. That’s it and some ramped up electrical mashing.

An article minus my bullcrap is here. The author of the article is well schooled and if I didn’t enjoy mining for new music, I would just use his articles for a source.  Paul Lester is an authority on new music that originates from The Island and surrounding areas.

  1. These guys are the Bomb! I would like folks to know that the two piece band I saw was Jonathon Richmond and His drummer, just the two of them. This was a decade before Jack White who i also dig!

  2. I have been listening Maida Vale session over and over again while I have been drawing, I saw you visited. Ready to Ascend, and Fall From Grace Descent into Madness were made while listening to that session for about 20 hours over and over. Also I am looking into getting an Octave Pedal and perhaps a bass. Either that or I will get a beatup acoustic I have fixed and just leave 4 strings. Thank you so much! I always looking for new tunes,

    • Bro, that is awesome. I am feeling a desire to try painting. I am not a fluid drawer, but want to experiment with painting. I am happy that you are enjoying what I enjoy doing. I started this blog, trying like hell to become something worth attention. Now I just do it to for no particular reason but to share a piece of myself that I am discovering. I do appreciate the attention, but happy that I have grown out of living for attention.
      Blood Royal is a special band. The world may never get to experience their music on a mass scale, but I am happy that I helped another enjoy what they do.

      • I certainly relate to the whole ” attention” thing. I used to base my self-worth on the quality of my art and music. If I sucked, then I would have to be the absolute worst. Like someone reacting to my Art with a shotgun to blow to bits. And on the other side, almost a Delusion of Grandeur that i am somehow the greastest. Just as in art, there are grays. Perhaps I am more in the middle now. I do not have to go after some sort of prestige. I am happy just to be able to do what I do. As far as your painting, realize that color is made of black, white, grays, hue, intensity of color. There are 4 or so components to any one color. That is why I use pencil. I want to master that aspect before going back into painting which to me is always a nightmare mess explosion wherever I work. I shared the Blood Royal link on facebook, so everyone can tune in to them. THank
