We play a lot of beefy, chuggy chords so having a hybrid set works really well – Tim Kramer
If it’s good enough for Jimi, it’s good enough for me – Tom Thain
Rotosound has always had an indelible connection to iconic artists of their generation. From the Beatles in the 1960s, to the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, onto Duran Duran, Oasis, and The Libertines, we’ve been there on the most influential era-defining records.
In this spirit, we have embarked on a new series of films highlighting the best new talent; the musicians who are producing music for Our Generation.
Carrying the torch of British punk confidently into the new decade, London’s Drones channel raucous rock riffs and 21-century angst into adrenaline inducing music. In this episode of Rotosound: Our Generation, we meet guitarists Tim Kramer and Tom Thain as they discuss their love of guitar and perform two tracks from their new LP, “Our Hell Is Right Here”.
Both guitarists rely on Rotosound Roto Blues guitar strings to provide a solid base for their roaring tones, complemented by cranked Marshall stacks. Bassist James Kerr is also a Rotosound player, using the classic Swing Bass 66 set.
