The Temperance Movement

Ever since Jimi Hendrix gatecrashed London and Led Zeppelin were "Going To California" there's been a trans-Atlantic crosstalk that informs great rock'n'roll. The newest addition to this fine tradition is blues-drenched, soul-dripping UK five-piece The Temperance Movement. Live on arrival, their 12-song self-titled debut album will be released in the United States on February 3, 2015 via Fantasy/Concord. "We're just a bunch of mates wanting to make music together," is guitarist Paul Sayer's simple thesis. The results suggest something more. It begins with a lightning-strike guitar riff, as a ragged, righteous voice roars: "Trouble don't live here no more, they told me that he cut himself loose..." Meet "Only Friend," the album's glorious opener, a statement of rock'n'roll purpose encapsulated by the key couplet: "Mama said he’s never coming back/ he’s out there killing the blues." Featuring front man Phil Campbell on vocals, Nick Fyffe on bass, guitarists Luke Potashnick and Paul Sayer, and drummer Damon Wilson, The Temperance Movement are a band united. Prior to forming, the members played with legendary acts including Deep Purple, Jamiroquai, Ray Davies, Klaus Voorman, The Waterboys, James Brown, and Jack Bruce. But when the five friends got together for a jam at Audio Underground in North London in 2011, everything they'd experienced as sidemen, session men, and in previous bands coalesced into alchemy. Instantly, The Temperance Movement was born.
