The Aces:

The Aces brand of energetic leftfield punk/blues hits all the right spots, combining a heavy-duty growler of a singer with a guitarist who jabs and slashes like a cornered serial killer, and a wailing siren of a harmonica, which says that the cops are coming, but not to rescue you. The essence of this sort of stuff is to unsettle and even intimidate the listener while carefully maintaining complete control from your own end. No-one Rides For Free, the band’s first release on El Toro combines these essential elements with a steady and authoritative bass-free backbeat to produce a ten track collection which well deserves wider attention.

HUGElarge:

“Two well-dressed friends, one cocktail drum, one 12 watt amplifier. A short set list of songs, all covers and routinely requesting the opening slot. All these things worn as a badge of honor, running antithetical to the aspiring musician’s professional modus operandi. Really, what’s there not to like about this band?
HUGElarge are Robert Malta and Matt Norelli, two musicians who have years of experience in the professionals game of extensive touring, long recording sessions, hauling pounds upon pounds of equipment – your usual soul crushing tedium. Convinced that it was possible to regain the excitement of banging out songs for fun, Malta bought a tiny Silvertone amplifier at a garage sale and talked Norelli into playing just one drum, “purely as a way to get together and have fun,” insists Malta.
Their minimalist approach is intact, and a HUGElarge show is a damn good time, owing in part to the duo’s impeccable taste in choosing cover songs by the likes of ? & The Mysterians, Roky Erickson, The Standells, T. Rex, and The Stooges among others.

Davey was invited to the United States from his native Scotland in 1979 by the late Bill Graham to front the band “GAMMA” then being put together by guitarist Ronnie Montrose – “I’d given up all hope of finding a quality singer for GAMMA until I heard Davey Pattison.” (Montrose quoted in the Detroit News).  Davey arrived with a notebook full of Iyrics and began co-writing the GAMMA hits, “Thunder & Lightning”, “No Tears” and “Razor King” for the band’s first album. Two more albums followed and Davey again co-wrote, most notably, the now classic GAMMA song “Voyager”. Major stadium and arena concerts followed as GAMMA was paired with major rock acts like AC/DC, Santana, ZZ Top, Journey, Toto and Foreigner. Davey Pattison and GAMMA had entered the world of big time Rock and Roll.

After years of success, like many bands, GAMMA’s members went their separate ways and in 1986 Davey was approached by his old friend Robin Trower who asked him to perform on his forthcoming album “PASSION”. “Trower’s “PASSION” not only shows off his guitar playing but showcases the talents of the group’s vocalist. Davey Pattison. who brought the house down with ” ‘PASSlON’s’ title track.” (Larry Snider, music director at KXIX, Seattle. “Trower’s guitar playing is topped off by a delicious peformance by one of the unsung talents of our time – former GAMMA front man. Davey Pattison” – Kerrang Magazine, U.K. (The British “Rolling Stone”)

Davey continued his work with Trower playing to sold out venues across the United States and Canada. Two years later the album “TAKE WHAT YOU NEED” was released, again to critical acclaim, and the hit single “TEAR IT UP” was aired on radio stations from coast to coast. In 1990, Atlantic Records released “IN THE LINE OF FIRE” – “Now more than ever. Trower’s music takes on a quality that’s testament to Pattison’s influence on the material” (Kerrang Magazine.) – “Surely now Pattison must be considered as one of the world’s top ten best singers.” (Kerrang Magazine). 1992 saw the release of the album “BEST OF GAMMA” and record sales soared. Davey reunited with Ronnie Montrose to tour in support of the album. Live shows received high praise from fans and critics alike
