Pearl Handled Revolver / Bio

'It's music that sounds like it's coming up through the gutter from a subterranean blues club that is frequented by a collection of vagabonds and circus freaks tripping on hallucigens.' - POWERPLAY

'The retro-rockers from Bedfordshire sounded a warning shot with last year's debut album Colossus. Now they're about to return... with a follow-up called This Mountain Waits that adds the priceless element of maturity to the mix.' - CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

'PHR conjure up some rapacious organ-pounding R'n'R, hypnotic blues-rock and loose, woozy licks for a stand-out follow up.' - GUITAR AND BASS MAGAZINE

'Classic, growly Blues-rock with an irresistable groove.' - R2

'Their energy can't be contained, twitching and itching, a jerking unsettling thing that brings to mind those great balls of fire, Clutch... What a fabulous hour, what a stunning set, what a brilliant band. This revolver is cocked and loaded. Squeeze the trigger.' - FIREWORKS MAGAZINE

'In a world where originality is becoming more and more difficult to find, Pearl Handled Revolver have handed us a glimpse of their own melting pot of sounds with plenty of variety throughout.' - BLUES MATTERS

'PHR set out their stall with unique soul bearing music that finds few equals on the contemporary rock scene. ‘This Mountain Waits’ is shaped by varying moods and an adventurous musical spirit that rides rough-shot over our expectations.' - GET READY TO ROCK

'Engaging and cohesive with an individual take on a broad range of traditions and easily worth the effort of a listen. How they might continue to develop the intricacies presented here is anyone’s best guess, but in the meantime, their blues are infectious.' - THE OBELISK
