Review: 4Sticks (The Box, 25-May-2009)


On the final day of Crewe Live, Welsh rockers 4Sticks gave the stragglers at The Box a performance that could have convinced the unwary into believing they’d been transported to LA some time in the late 60s or early 70s; kicking out original material interspersed with covers of some rock classics, these guys had the sound, the look, and the presence of a band who know exactly what they’re doing, and songs like “Alabama Highchair” wouldn’t sound out of place if someone snuck it into the soundtrack of Easy Rider. It’s no surprise that they’ve earned themselves a regular slot at The Dudley in Rhyl, and if balls-out blues rock is your thing it may be worth making the trip out there — you won’t be disappointed!

    Excellent gig, watching The 4Sticks storm through that stunning set with such red blooded raw emotion and the coolest sleazy swagger was the crewe live festival highlight for me and everyone present, all the best to the new kings of boogie. Great review.

    i don’t really do balls-out, it’s biologically impossible for one thing, but i did enjoy reading that review and will keep my ears open for the 4sticks in future.
