Walking Papers

Postby agny » Tue Oct 22, 2013 10:07 pm

Very cool band, lots of jazz and blues influence. Hard to describe, reminds me a little of Morphine if anything.

Jeff Angell - vocals and guitar - https://twitter.com/AngellJeff
Barrett Martin - drums
Duff McKagan - bass and guitar - https://twitter.com/DuffMcKagan/
Ben Anderson - keys and vocals

Saw them on Rockstar Uproar and they were absolutely fantastic, belonged up on the main stage with Alice in Chains and Jane's Addiction. Bet I'll never see them up close on a tiny sidestage again. I got to the venue too late to for the signing (wanted to have Duff sign his book too) but met Jeff and Ben on my way out after AiC and they were super nice. I think they're opening for AiC's UK tour soon. Go see them live!

I saw them last night supporting Alice In Chains. One of the best support acts I've seen. They were incredible, Barrett is a beast.

Saw these guys last night, supporting Biffy Clyro and they were incredible. It was so cool to see Duff in person and Angell is such an amazing frontman!

Got to meet them after the show. Cool guys!

I do regret not meeting them after the Alice In Chains.

I bought their CD the other day, and it's brilliant. I don't think I've found a new band as good as these guys in a very long time.

Yea, I'm listening to them as I'm writing this post. I'm so excited to hear more stuff from this band.

Every interview I've read/heard they seem so excited about this project and happy to be working together, so I hope this keeps going for a long time.

I still haven't gone through Jeff Angell's back catalog. So much music to explore!

Just listened to a couple of songs (the first three songs actually) after seeing their album on Myles' 'Top ten from 2013' list - really impressed so far. I bloody love the album cover too. I know you should never judge something by it's cover but... I'd buy the album because of the cover alone :lol

Glad to have stumbled upon these guys and their album before the end of the year - it's one of my favourites :)

Yea, I have been listening to them non-stop since I saw them live a few nights ago. I love being in the honeymoon phase of discovering a new band :D

Here's a video of them playing a new song. They played this one in Brussels as well.

Dan it's a shame you've only just got into them now, they were supporting Alice In Chains in Newport just over a month ago! They were definitely as good as Alice In Chains!

I was wondering what was up with that King Hooker song, when I saw them in Newport over half the set were songs that are not on the album, I assume these are new songs that haven't been recorded yet? They all sounded great. I was really impressed with their last song, just drums, bass and keyboards, and the singer wondered around in the crowd while singing.

Saw them supporting Biffy Clyro and even if I'm not a big fan of their studio effort, I have to say that they are a big act live! Especially the frontman, who's totally crazy, and the drummer! Live they sound a lot better imo.

Yea, I loved that one as well. It's called Red and White, there are some versions of it on Youtube. New songs mean that there will be a new album somewhere in the future, so I'm cool with that! At least the chemistry is there.

Love that. Like a classic Twilight Zone segment set to music.

I bought their album sometime in November, and I still love it. Every time I think 'oh I'll just listen to a couple of Walking Papers songs' I end up putting the entire album on play without fail. I hope we get some new music from these guys soon.

I saw an interview a few days ago with Jeff where he said that the entire album was written in a few days. Crazy how much chemistry there must've been considering how good the album is..

According to this setlist they're playing a few new songs http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/walking-papers/2014/the-rock-cafe-st-pauli-hamburg-germany-6bc06ada.html

Has anyone heard or seen videos of Rumble, Unforgiven, and Afro Beat?

I remember the name Afro Beat.. They either played it when I saw them in Brussels, or I saw a video of it afterwards. I've got to run, so I can't look it up right now, but I'm pretty sure there must be a video of it on Youtube.
