“Joel Owen & The Antoine Band - Roll Your Stone For Bluesy, boozy-dancing Big Band honky-tonk boogie and then some, this unashamedly retrospective project from Joel Owen & The Antoine Band engagingly hits all the right feel-good buttons. For someone who always infuriated his elder brothers for calling that iconic album cover from John Mayall & The Bluebreakers as ‘The Dandy album’ because of that up and coming whipper-snapper Eric Clapton laconically reading aforesaid tome, Roll Your Stone* sure rattles the chandeliers in this reviewer’s memory palaces. From an inexcusably young and damnably talented ensemble, this album is simply a joy-fest of honkin’ horn, moonshine-soaked piano and vintage valve cleansed guitar. Lonesome freight-train harmonicas twelve-bar rattle over tumbleweed haunted crossroads as slide-guitars weep a melancholy refrain ‘cos the man gone done lost his dawg and his wife has come a running on back home – how can a poor man stand such times and live?”
