In a world full of media hype, what can be said about Crosscut Saw...
Individually and as a band, they have a solid musical pedigree, having steeped themselves in the recordings and traditions of a great musical heritage, they have worn the boards in countless venues for many a year.
In a time where over-polished, made-to-order, disposable fare is the norm, Crosscut Saw's music is highly-charged, real and raw.
Influenced by the modern world of diversity and chaos, they draw influence from the greats such as Buddy Guy, Magic Sam, RL Burnside, but express themselves in a deeply singular and idiosyncratic style.
“We tend to shun the temptation to talk about past successes, celebrity endorsements and awards and concentrate on the next performance.”
A Crosscut Saw gig is a hoodoo rollercoaster of pure primeval power. No hype, no image, no posturing, no deception, just true alchemy.
No two performances are ever the same, even the musicians themselves don’t know what potent brew will be cooked up.
“You have to be there in the moment, you have to feel it.”
Crosscut Saw are:
Alex Eden - guitar, harmonica, and vocals
Paddy Wells - harmonica, vocals
Richard Ferdinando - drums
James Heggie - bass guitar
'There are some acts that are really properly truly 100% dirty honest mustard and this is one of them. Catch the fire-breathing beast that is Crosscut Saw when you can.' - Jason Elliott, Colne Blues Festival organiser
'Leeds' finest exponents of the blues' - Yorkshire Evening Post
