“WORLD DOMINATION TOUR”
The year 2003 looks set to be a very busy one for Elektrum, the affable rock trio from Cornwall. Apart from a few selected dates in the UK, the band are concentrating their efforts on two major festivals and a Scandinavian tour, as well as recording a new album in conjunction with “Russian Maestro” the highly respected Artemiy Artemiev.
I caught up with the group recently when they played the London Inn in the sleepy Devon village of Braunton. In my opinion Elektrum are the best live act in the South West of England but I was interested to see how they would go down with an audience who had just come out for the odd beer or two, and how recently acquired drummer John Bluett would fit in to the band.
The band compose all the music themselves, and full review
I had the pleasure of seeing the band live for the third time on Friday night. After not seeing them for about three years I was not disappointed. Ian and Claus were everything my memory recolected and more. The new drummer wasn't bad either. All in all, the music was,as usual, excellent. Please keep it up lads. I just hope one day that someone with some clout in the music industry gets you some decent promotion and much larger venues to tour. Many Thanks. T bag.
p.s. Since the gig, Claus has inspired me to pick up my guitar so much so that I've had a few neighbours asking me to turn my amp down and two to turn it up. T Bag.
Wow. Saw these guys last night at Mojo in Copenhagen (6/8/05) and bought the record. Claus sure is a Great Dane :-) Tom
Great band and their music has now been made available through the same record company that I am with, namely Stone Island Records. Hopefully a new album soon from them. John Simms
