California Breed California Breed
Frontiers When a band is on a roll it’s hard to hold back, but if a couple of the members are busy with other projects, drastic action sometimes has to take place. As such, California Breed rose from the ashes of Black Country Communion, and it sees the mighty rhythm section that is Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham join forces with a guitarist Andrew Watt to form a new and exciting heavy rock trio. Andrew was introduced to Glenn by Julian Lennon and he still can’t believe his luck: “Getting to play with these legends has given me wings!” he declares. And he’s certainly flying high on this album. Glenn is playing and singing phenomenally these days and seems to be riding a wave of creativity. We particularly like the arpeggio guitar work on Chemical Rain, which has a super feel and menace, in spite of the quieter passages. It’s also one the first tracks written by Watt and Hughes - just a few days after they met. Solo was another but that is only included on the Deluxe Edition along with two videos. If you like your rock furious and heavy, look no further; this album is a killer!
