Looks like the Temperance Movement can indeed rock.  That should be a good one to catch!  Isn't The Borderline where JJG&M played last March?

And I came across the Magnificent Fiend cd by Howlin' Rain, another band you have mentioned on the forums.  I liked it, but one of the lengthy guitar solos may have "borrowed" a little too liberally (stole? lol) from Yes' Steve Howe in Starship Trooper.

Hi Craven!  Yep - saw JJG&M there in March 12.  Sell out crowd.  Great gig!  It's a good venue too.  Also saw Hubert Summlin there a few years back too - another cracker!

I've not got a copy of Magnificent Fiend - but have listened to it on Spotify and liked it.  I have however got a copy of the latest Howlin' Rain album - The Russian Wilds, which I absolutely love!

I'm happy to report after a cracking gig on Friday night that these guys are indeed "The Real Deal". A seriously good band. If you are into Black Crowes / Skynrd / Cry of Love etc I can guarantee you will enjoy their output.

Their currently available 5 track EP titled "Pride" (available here

http://www.thetemperancemovement.com/
) is well worth a listen. Good songs - well played and recorded, and there is a promise of a forthcoming full length debut album in the near future.

Watch out for them - if they ever get over to your side of the pond, go see them! I promise you will not be disappointed.

Really excited about the new album coming out (at least my side of the pond) on 16 Sept.  Here's a few little tasters cut live for The Amazon Lounge

Hope you enjoy - I've downloaded the MP3's if anyone is interested

Hey ICBC!
Not available over here (yet), but will keep eyes/ears open.

Are you going to any of the September gigs?  I see there are also a handful in mid-November.  Now, if they could coincide with JJG&M returning to the UK for a week of November shows, ...

Also, thanks for the CA Honeydrops heads up.  They will be in Iowa in Oct.
