'Sid Sings are a deliciously dark and dirty Blunk-explosion for the True Blood generation. Forget gothic romance - these rock 'n' rollers are true sex Glampires!'
The band is headed-up by sassy frontwoman, Sid and powered by Alex Michie's turbo-charged guitar-playing and Marco Quarantotto's down and dirty drumming. A combination which has lead critics to describe them as 'Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs backed by the early ZZ Top', and 'Patti Smith fronting The White Stripes.'
Their uber-charismatic live show simply blows audiences away. They opened at The HMV Forum in London for Mod legends Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler from The Jam and have also supported the likes of Nine Below Zero, Hugo Race and The fatalists and Yat-Kha. They have headlined many prestigious London venues including The Blues Kitchen, The Barfly, The Borderline, 93 Feet East and The Garage. They have also enthralled audiences at festivals in the UK and Europe including Guilfest, Gold Coast Ocean Festival, Nozstock, Avant Garde Blues Festival in Italy, and Cognac Blues Passions Festival in France, where they were named band of the day and were hailed by the press as stars of the nu-blues.
After the band appeared on The Balling The Jack Show on Resonance FM Sid was offered her own show which is called House Rent Boogie and airs every Tuesday at 3pm.
Their first album, Notes From The Underground was released last year to critical acclaim. They are currently working on a follow-up which promises to burn with the classic intensity which has become their trademark.
As the song says, Sid Sings are gonna shake it tonight...
“With the help of sultry Sid the band is going from strength to strength, bringing together their own sound punctuated by Sid's teasing and sexy voice and interpretation. Not only are they talented musicians but they are also great songwriters as demonstrated by the twelve songs they wrote for this album, taking inspiration from the likes of Robert Johnson, Seasick ,White Stripes and The Sex Pistols .Here you have a hotter Blues Rock ,adding spice to the current delights in the Blues Kitchen” Blues Matters Magazine
"We're just going to tell you about the very very best once a week, no more time for the average, only the most exciting - we're very very selective, when we tell you it's good then it really is goooooooood... – Three piece band with an impressively busy alt.blues thing going down, feisty girl singer, think Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the run with early ZZ Top. Death Rattle Boogie opens things in a rush somewhat fitting of that song’s tasty tittle, Giddy is a seductively moody slow burner with some righteous slide guitar that really gets under your skin after a couple of spins. Put a red tick by them and keep an ear or an eye of some kind of eye/ear thing out.".......... Organ Magazine
" Giddy...This is a real masterpiece" Radio2xs
" Thats very very good " John Kennedy XFM
"dead good and dead sexy" Unpeeled Magazine
"Mixing PJ Harvey's archness with Debbie Harry's sultry caress. Shining a bright light into the typical murk of swamp blues and revealing its cross-over potential into mainstream pop .Like PJ Harvey and Jon Spenser sitting down and consciously trying to write a hit" Whisperin&Hollerin
"By all accounts one of the coolest things on the live circuit. Causing a word of mouth whisper across the knowing cognoscenti .Sid teases , toys and trashes about with a stinging raw intensity .Both sleek and hipgrindingly groovy. Ones to watch me thinks " Losingtoday.com..................
"Simply addictive..a frenzy of swinging beats which is impossible not to tap along. Quite simply how rhythm and blues is supposed to sound" Groovemachine Magazine
"Thanks for your thoughts. I don't want to piss off fans by issuing later a 45 they thought was very limited. I really like the 100-copy idea, though. It can BARELY pay for itself, but would be so cool...
