Urgent News from the LA (Leicester Area) Swamplands.
SWAMP DELTA ANNOUNCE debut album SICK LIVER BLUES.
Recently various members of two giants of Late 80s Urban Bastard Blues - The Gaye Bykers on Acid and Crazyhead, - met, drank deep from the well of the Swamp Juice, lit the fire to the Delta Goddess and a Musical Marsh Monster was born. This numinous night time hatching precipitated a coalescing of the Midland troubadours into a new, ugly, deformed, Mutant Bastard Blues offspring called SWAMP DELTA.

These 21st Century mass metal destructor's have formed a new musical collective SWAMP DELTA.
All were born and raised in the South Wigston Swamp Delta Zone (an area perhaps best known for nurturing young pretenders Kasabian). Built upon ancient marshlands next to the holy river Glene; a liminal-psycho-magical sector where the Delta Queen is worshiped and the Gift of Good music is granted. Lost tribes and Swamp Fauna fill their minds. Mystic visions and psychotropic wars populate their Ids. Brain bending substances, mind stretching ritual; eat it - three days without any sleep - puke it – give your hands to the Delta’s Daughter. They got low in the Heart of Darkness and drank the Heavy Water.
Three Grebo Gurus, a troika of Grind, 2+1 = Meltdown, a triumvirate of Swamp Stenching Rock and Roll. Night time? Well she’s a harlot….The Gifts of the Mother have a price……Wake up bent, twisted and on your knees.
The clash of this tripped out Delta Force has brought forth the BRAND NEW album SICK LIVER BLUES. With LA resident Swamp Thing Bob “Bam Bam” Bryers at the controls, the mix was mastered, the moonshine polished, the madness mediated.
Metaphorical, allegorical, psycholiminal?
Figure it out for yourself...
