Thanks to a recently gifted subscription, a copy of Shindig! magazine lands on my doormat every month regular as clockwork; and as we know nothing is more regular than clockwork.
Concealed within its covers are the sort of bands who, I'm guessing, rarely, if ever, make the mainstream glossies. Some of them may never have seen their names in print before. Ever.
A recent discovery has been a bunch of young lads from the Netherlands. I'm tempted to call DeWolff a power trio, they being a threesome, but that would be doing them a disservice. And the reason I say that is because, yes, they can belt it out with the best of them and, yes, they can probably trace their lineage back to Deep Purple (Mark One, no less) and very early ZZ Top, but, when they drop a gear and gently apply the brakes, they are more than capable of sounding as soulful - and as funky - as this. Nice.
