Praised in major publications from The Guardian to Shindig! and Classic Rock Magazine, Bath’s rock upstarts Ulysses deliver quirky pop delights and to die for big riffs with what is fast becoming Ulysses’ own distinct sound – a nether land between psych, glam and rock, guitar stroking and pop sheen.
Having toured with Rival Sons, Purson and members of The Black Crowes and currently making a new album with producer Steve Evans (Robert Plant / Siouxsie / Goldfrapp) due out early 2016, it seems that Ulysses have unknowingly brought their cheeky influences (Syd Barrett, psych-era Stones, The Cars, Thin Lizzy, Hot Chocolate, Supergrass, Sailor, Alvin Stardust and Paul McCartney & Wings) to the heart of the new rock elite.
Thee Dagger Debs are three girls brought together by their love of 60s garage, British R’n’B and 70s proto punk and pub rock. Chiswick records, Eddie and the Hot Rods, The Stranglers, Dr Feelgood and Nine Below Zero, to name a few of their influences, always feature heavily in their record boxes.
