Takeaway Thieves – Brand New EP ‘This is RocknRoll’

Takeaway Thieves have just released their debut 4 track ep “This is RocknRoll”. Self released on the bands own label Coffee n Mint Records, it was produced by Tim A. Duncan at John Sykes (Whitesnake/Blue Murder) legendary Berlin Studios.

Featuring the single “I Wish You Were Dead” as the opening track, a love song to the Elite. Followed by “Stardust” ” Slippin Slidin” and closing the e.p. as they do live with the title track ” This is RocknRoll”. With fast paced riff laden rock songs and an energetic performance, Takeaway Thieves have garnered a fast growing following and “This is RocknRoll” encapsulates exactly the bands swagger and what they are about, good time Rock n Roll.

” We are proud of this ep and the fact it has captured the energy of the band which sometimes gets diluted in the studio.. We asked TT fans what they wanted to hear on our ep and these tracks came out on top of the poll as favourites, so that’s what we recorded.The cover was intentionally designed as a juxtaposition to the music and title of the ep”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
