Wow! Is it really that time again, already…?
The first line-up announcement for the 2016 instalment of Reverence Valada, has left me grinning like a Cheshire cat.
I had no idea, when I saw my beloved Killing Joke at the Roundhouse in London just a few weeks ago, that I’d get to see them again in the Portuguese sunshine next September.

Throw Down Bones are, Frankie Frankie, (so cool they named him twice!) : Guitar/Synth/Vocal/Effect, Dave Cocks: Bass/Percussion and James Aparicio: Producer. Throw Down Bones is “Noise Militia, Amnesia haze kraut and Philosophical drone”.
Risen, phoenix-like from the ashes of Piatcions, “THROW DOWN BONES is the answer, a personal therapy, a rehab from life, an artistic space without structures where we can let music flow naturally.”
For certain, these guys kick collective ass live. I consider myself extremely fortunate, to have witnessed the Throw Down Bones performance, as part of the recent Fuzz Club Records Festival. Frankie and Dave brought their raw, elemental DIY ethos to the mixing desk, and summarily wowed the faithful with their blistering set.
