"60s pop, spaghetti western-style garage, chunky guitars and shimmering keyboards, topped off nicely by their atmospheric vocals" - Louder Than War
"With rockabilly and garage coursing through their veins, there's a cocky swagger in every note" - Raw Meat
Since their formation, neo-rockabilly the four-piece The Sly Persuaders have been paying their dues on the London live music circuit, earning themselves a respectable following and carving out a name as one of the city’s hardest working DIY outfits. Live, the band ooze charisma and charm effortlessly, but it’s in their songwriting that crowds are instantly hooked; gang-style backing vocals and anthemic choruses merge a sound that is at times both unique and vintage.
The Sly Persuaders make raucous garage rock soaked in heavily-effected, searing guitars. Their brand of Bad Seeds’ energy meets The Gun Club’s rockabilly psychosis oozes from their singles and surf-pop beats merge with layers of gypsy-psych percussion to create something totally new.
