James and the Cold Gun
"This band fricken' rocks!" - Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam)
It took less than three years for James And The Cold Gun to go from a garage in Cardiff, Wales — where the band's co-founders, James Joseph and James Biss, recorded their debut album — to Hyde Park supporting Pearl Jam.
That sort of explosive growth is mirrored in the band's music: a loose, loud sound that evokes the glory days of 1990s alt-rock, back when electric guitars ruled the airwaves. James And The Cold Gun's self-titled debut album nods to that era, but it's a defiantly modern record, too, reclaiming the sounds of the past for a world in desperate need of a little amplification.
