Ten for 2010 Revisited... Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers

It's been just over a year since I was sat in Bedlam Theatre in Edinburgh mesmerised by Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers. Since then, I've lost track of how many times I've been at one of their gigs, engrossed in their infectious live show. If you then throw in their top-notch singles "Twisted Mile", "Hang The Noose" and "Draw A Line", it's no surprise they were one of my picks for 2010.

So far, Ali and the guys haven't disappointed. They've been up and down the country promoting their debut album, "Home and the Wild Hunt" with a host of cracking radio sessions (which can be found here, here, here and over on the good ship Peenko here and here) as well as a 'hairy' interview with Glasgow PodcART. I've been wracking my brain for a while now trying to think of what I could say to do the album justice. I'll let the music speak for itself though. It really is too good for words!


Woodenbox will be in session for the BBC with Ricky Ross tomorrow, then hitting the road again in the run-up to festival season. Here's the details:

Upcoming Gigs
2nd May - Get A Room @Brunswick Hotel, Glasgow
7th May - Stereo, Glasgow (solo) for The Kays Lavelle album launch
15th May - Platform, Easterhouse
19th May - The Lexington, London
11th June - King Tuts, Glasgow
18th June - Winterwell Festival, Gloustershire
19th June - The Insider Festival, Aviemore
27th June - Brel, Glasgow (West End Festival)
24th July - The Big Tent Festival, Falkland

If you fancy the album (and why wouldn't you!?!), you can get the mp3s at Amazon or eMusic, or for those of you, like me, who still need to have the CD, you can get a copy from Avalanche Records.
