Daddy Long Legs

DADDY LONG LEGS at Crofters Rights Thu 25 July 2019 from 7.30pm

Daddy Long Legs

Daddy Long Legs are a New York City-based trio whose stripped-down roots sound and in-your-face intensity has garnered them fans in their hometown and overseas, where they’ve toured with such kindred spirits as The Damned, The Sonics, Nikki Lane, Hurray For The Riff Raff and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Rolling Stone Magazine have compared them to “Chicago blues fired at the moon, played by the demented children of The Pretty Things.”

Since forming in 2010, the band has released two studio albums, a live album and two 45s on Norton Records. Their last album was 2015’s ‘Rides Tonight’.

Forget what you know about the blues because Daddy Long Legs are going to show you a new sound of the south. The New York-based trio flips the genre upside down and turns it inside out injecting classic roots and blues with foot-stomping rock ’n’ roll soul. While influenced by the likes of Son House, Captain Beefheart, Howlin’ Wolf, MC5, and Dr Feelgood, their sound personifies garage rock and punk with a contemporary raw twist performed in their own brand of supercharged R&B. Get ready for them to rock River Town at The Crofters Rights this summer!
