'California noir' guitar-bravura rock & roll!

Rock & Roll, no BS, mainly guitars, preferably a Stratocaster, and a smashing live-performer. Now putting out new CD 'Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins' (on Yep Roc via V2.) Our favourite 'prophet' is indeed referring to that author of 'I Fought The Law', who died too soon, but Alan Vega or David Bowie could also count on his tribute. He describes his latest CD as, above all, 'California Noir' – about the darker side of that 'sunny state' .

Hold onto your chair:

Humo on that latest CD: '...een zoveelste smakelijke solo-plaat... over rock-'n-roll dit keer... een levendige en spitse, kortom hoogst vermakelijke boel.'

Mojo 4*: 'chiming Fender guitars, Dylan-meets-the-Stones song forms and everywhere ageless rock'n'roll'

Record Collector 4*: 'a real tonic, a reminder how potent and straightforward melodic pop/rock can be'

Q Magazine 4*: 'Quite an achievement'

Independent 4*: 'master guitarist and accomplished songwriter is on top form'

Daily Express 4*: 'his very best work...the streetwise air of a more bitter and sardonic Tom Petty'

Already been here at least 5 times under his own name… always welcome as he’s always huge!

All of the above is absolutely true, in black and white, even in ‘green and red’!

They got up and played .... real good! We had .... A real good time together
Met zoveel mijlen op de teller nog elke avond met zo'n overgave volle gas en volle petrol geven, da's pas rock-n-roll! Weinigen doen het hem na, en daarenboven is dit een meer dan solide songschrijver, moeilijk te geloven (en bijzonder spijtig) dat een klasbak (de term is nog al gevallen) nog zo moet ploeteren om zijn muziek te slijten. Maar wat een feestje, dank u, AB.

Fantastisch ,wat een klasbak
It was a bad year for rock and roll , but what a concert ! Thanks Chuck and fuck Trump!!! Juancho
Leuk weerzien met een oude bekende!
It was a great show, I already knew that, of course. Last time I saw him must have been 1999 at the Mercury Lounge. Chuck's songwriting is solid and filled with deep tracks that would make many a great rocker cry (to paraphrase the Stones). In my opinion Chuck remains one of the stalwarts of the dying art of R&R. Thousands of miles every year, playing every gig as if it were his last and imbuing them with a sense of urgency, passion, and juvenile delinquency that I haven't seen in ages. I understand perfectly the reason why my good friend Brian Henneman (main honcho of The Bottle Rockets) declares Chuck one of the last R&R-ers. I think I have seen, simultaneously, both the past and the future of the music we love. We would need 100, 1000, 100.000 Chuck Prophets in this world. It was TEMPLE BEAUTIFUL!
Fantastic show, thank you AB!
Alweer schitterend.Klasbak!
Fenomenaal concert, misschien wel concert van het jaar.
