“Independence is a faultless, flawless, blinding gem of a blues/rock album. From the opening explosion of Crash 'n' Burn to the sultry delta closing of Honest to God, not a second is wasted. The man behind it all is Keith Thompson an experienced and in demand musician he has gathered around him like minded disciples in the guise of Neil Simpson and Roy Adams from The Climax Blues Band, Patsy Gamble from the Little Big Horns and John Broomhall. But it's Thompson powerhouse singing and guitar riffs that blaze through the album. This is music that comes straight from those halcyon days when the British Blues explosion was giving way to the scruffier, freer, meaner and dirtier rock that was its love child. From there it has also taken the tradition of leaving no stone unturned. They have given true fans back the knot in their stomach. Michael Mee”

Q: Who are some of your musical influences?
A: My early musical influences are all the early British Blues/Rock players. Free (Paul Kossoff), Eric Clapton, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, Dave Gilmour, Gary Moore, Jimmy Page etc. Prior to that I was listening to the Beatles & the Stones which I guess influenced my song-writing. Also love acoustic stuff, John Martyn, Stephan Grossman, Doyle Dykes etc.
