"Style + Fire = The Convulsions", Cooler King - Press Review in Lodz: PlasterLodzki - Nov. 2016)t

"I love it. The epileptic seizures music, you guys are truerly awesome! If only we would have known how awesome you are before.. you have to come back! Turn around i will put you on a stage somewhere! Why aren't you stopping in Germany you can ultra awesome gigs there too." (Rita - Punto Jazz, Nov. 24th, 2016)

"The Tarq was excellent, but so was the band who were playing and, an absolutely extraordinary harp player - I've never seen a harmonica played with such skill and gusto" (email to venue after show - Aug 5th, 2015)to - brilliant.

"You guys got the biscuit this year" Punter at Eden Valley Beer Festival, Kings Meaburn (July 19th, 2014)

"In all honesty you are very unlikely to ever see a better harmonica player live" (Ed Syls - Belper News, May 2014) (full article at "Pub's Friday music offering is jaw dropping"))

"Greatly enjoyed your set at the Old Duke. Rootsy, raw, twitching maelstrom of sweat yet one which huffs out a lyricism of human frailties" (Peter Wilk, Old Duke, Bristol gig Aug. 2013)

"I have seen hundreds of acts over a thirty year period and UK Festivals and Gigs, some of the best names in the world, and I have to say that I was blown away by that on Sunday and it is right up there with Stevie Wonder in my own personal experience of enjoyment at live gigs." (Kevin Chambers, Lancaster Music Festival 2012)

“My mate and I both stood there like the rest of the audience, grinning from ear to ear at a jaw dropping performance”

“ The audience were absolutely spellbound . . . . . simply awesome!!!"

Comments on the Dundee Blues Bonanza website last year. Hopefully we can top that with the acrobatic stage choreography we've been rehearsing at LUDUS (joke)

"Sprightly Anglo-US outfit inventively blend classic Windy City blues with Sixties soul, British R&B and a Nineties punk energy."

The Independent, Five Best Music (UK).

 “The live show is that by which we compare every other band we look at.”

Rob Gillis of Waterdog records.

"the hottest, punkiest, funky British Rhythm 'n Blues available in the USA. This ROCKS!!!!!!!"....

Berlin DJ Lord Litter.

“My favorite Blues Punk Band”

Buzz Kilman, WCKG.

“Combination of Mick Jagger and David Byrne . . . spastic harp . . . I was instantly riveted”

Mike Harris, Editor Chief, Illinois Entertainer.

“. . . my word these lads were AWESOME! The set climaxed in a pool of sweat that flooded the stage.”

Diane, Sister Feelgood – British RnB Festival Review in Blues Matters,

“Frenzied punk-funk fusion with attitude, this bebop meets Godzilla with harp-o-batics from hell”

Judge Jones, UK Blues Free Press

“ . . . sweaty, US blues punkers.”

Timeout Magazine

MOVIE FEATURES AND RADIO PLAY

- Airplay now in MACEDONIA!!
MOJO BLUES 94.1 FM, Radio 2 in Skopje started playing us in February 2007 (Sundays 6-8pm).
The 4th February 2007 playlist included no less than three Convulsions tracks: Kowtow, Smoking In Germany and Watch Your Step.

- Several tracks from our "Shaken and Disturbed" album are on the Resurrection Mary movie soundtrack: (http://www.resurrectionmary-movie.com). The movie can be watched for free at FEARnet.

- The track "Don't Know What To Tell You" is reputedly part of the soundtrack for CVP studios' "On the Road Trip" which turned out to be a porn movie and was then apparantly changed to "Adventure Sex 1" on DVD from Hustler studios. As the original agreement did not include rights to sell the soundtrack there are lawsuits pending initiated by other artists - all interesting stuff, and no, we haven't seen a copy yet as we were meant to receive free ones and did not!

- Airplay now in Holland and Belgium on Milo FM 103.1 every Thursday 7-10pm!

- BERLIN airplay! See DJ Lord Litter on line at www.Lordlitter.de

- BELGIUM and ARGENTINA radio stations play us!! The Buenos Aire's RnB Hour started playing us Saturday, July 27th 2003 with "Good Times Blues" shortly following. Yeah!

AND "Blues at Sunrise" on Austin KVRX 91.7 FM Wednesdays 7-9am.

Older News:

The 2013 Lancaster Music Festival was incredible! The ale launch was such a success that it will be an integral part of next year's festival. The Castle is to be the headline venue. The festival won best Tourism Event in Lancashire. There were delays on the M6 motorway on the Sat. "Due to the Lancaster Music Festival". The city posted the busiest weekend ever. And crime was reduced in the weekend by 25% compared to previous and subsequent weekends and by 53% overall on the year. Whoopee!!

June 6 2012 Confirmed Australian tour for next Sept. in partnership with excellent funk and reggae band Kindread

Dentdale Music and Beer Festival was excellent but MUDDY. They do want us back though for next year so that's a plus- next up Dundee Blues Bonanza Sat. July 2nd

March 2011:

HUGE thanks to Neil Gowland of Absolute Recordings, Mo Whittam, and Barry and Chris of Firehouse Studios.

THE VIDEO IS DONE! Thanks to Chris of Arun Productions
Click here or link above right

May 2010: We have some demos from the Park Sessions! Get Your Groove On! Joker Man, Hole In The Head. The full studio session starts Jan. 2nd

Sweden was EXCELLENT. So good in fact we're probably going back in February (yes, geographically seasonally confused as we are - should be about -20C by then). Thanks Erik the Beard and Derrick and all you snowballing cats at Stockholm Uni! The eyeball will apparantly recover from the blurring corneal scratches of exuberant snow!

We played at the Lancaster Music Festival (opposite) both under our own name (Penny Street Bridge, Sat. Oct. 9th 9-11pm) and as host of the Lancaster Funk Club jam session (Crows, Sun. Oct. 10th 2-6pm). Thank you to the nearly 200 folks who turned up at Penny Street Bridge!

Ukraine Tour slide show is <here>

And we're going back 2011

Isle of Man Blues Festival feedback pending - by heck what a groove!!! Thank you Val and Barry (Red Gap and Jeceris) for an unforgettable weekend and superb music! XX

We've been invited to play the New Year's Eve gig at the Gregson Centre, Lancaster which would be our first choice in this town!

Honka Monka Club - every Sunday afternoon at the Penny Bank (4.30-7pm) we get together with other musicians to play deep funk and 60's garage. Yours truly spins old funk and soul records in the breaks

We have a Bluesbunny Review for Lancaster Music Festival! Click on the the bunnies!!!

Click here for festival review

Hmm, we appear to be on Last FM - not sure how that happened! http://www.last.fm/music/The+Convulsions

One Planet Festival a blast too! Though knackering as most of it was powered by bike (by you know who - with some guest legs the loveliest of which were Dawn's from One Planet Festival's committee who managed to power an entire song before we reverted to mains electricity)

Birmingham Art Fest a succes. The trio went over there too.

Work starts on the re-recording of Hole in the Head for the video. Recording starts in Oct. and hope to have the video mastered by December.

We have a spotter looking for a possible deal for us.

Peterborough Beer Festival - what a superb organisation. Thanks so much to Mike Lane for being a superb host. We came, we played, we drank an awful lot of excellent ale. Hard life, someone has to do it!

SW Tour. This band keeps getting weirder and weirder. Wondering why my right arm was a bit stiff today I remembered it was probably due to swinging from a lamp post with it while playing gobiron with the left Sun. 23rd. Then there was the traffic cone on the head during 'Don't Need No Doctor' (no, just a psychiatrist) a constant stream of inane babble. A third of a bottle of port preceeding, two pints of Twiddly Dike right before then double brandy redbull and pickled egg during. When in the SW of this country it's hard not to go native and join in the exuberant strangeness and good humour that survived the Celts, the Romans, the Anglo Saxons, the Danes, Normans and grockles of the twenty first century in craven caravans.

The Swedish tour was a revelation. Thanks very much to Derrick Walker of Big Walker and the Blues Souls for putting us up and up with us and the same to the marvelous Wirstroms Pub in Gamla Stan (Old Town) of Stockholm - Ian you were a life saver, Royce you're a chef par excellence (fish and chips in an Irish pub in Sweden and the fish comes from New Zealand!) and Sigfrid you are the most sparkle barmaid in northern Europe!

We also learnt to play a new style. The first night we had no guitarist (Mo couldn't do the tour so Derrick was to provide us Diamond Dogs, ex Johnny Thunder rocker Stevie but was his birthday). It worked so well, we developed so many on the fly technique we chose to play the entire week without a guitarist.

And it WORKED! Boy, did it work - we even wrote two new songs on the spot and created a 12 minute funk medley narrative involving a bit of Memphis Soul Stew, Money, Shake Your Money Maker and Land of 1000 Dances!!

Lips are still scarred though!!!

he last installment of the Bristol video shoot. Very "sweet and sour experience" (bad pun - see "China Gets It" by way of explanation in appalling taste)

What next? Re-record the song with the new lineup that's what (and a few new ones to boot - great that Mo's actually an engineer)

They liked us in Dundee (Dundee Blues Bonanza - June 27th 2009!

"Sat Late at The Nether Inn
Was recommended by a colleague to drop in to catch a band called The Convulsions. Am soooooooooo glad I did. I have never seen anyone playing a harmonica at that speed or anyone play a Hammond organ at that speed. But Ben the lead singer did both AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!.

This is a band that puts so much effort into their performance, it simply defies belief. They delivered an astonishing blues and funk mix in a style that I would describe as having a large helping of Dr Feelgood and another of The Ramones. My mate and I both stood there like the rest of the audience, grinning from ear to ear at a jaw dropping performance that kept us there right to the end. The audience were absolutely spellbound by a band that we sincerely hope will be back next year.

One of the biggest highlights for me, simply awesome!!!"

We've been picked out of over 100 acts to perform at the Peterborough Beer Festival on August Bank Holiday Friday (see opposite). And having found the camping bug at Off the Tracks last month we're bringing the band tent!

Actually, beer festivals seem to be a new niche for us. Keswick Ale Festival June 5th went down really well (as did the superb ales)!
