Southern rocks

Can a Kent-based band boogie like real southern rockers? Y’all bet yer arse they can! MelonHeadMan ripped through their high-energy ‘boogalizing’ songs at the Dublin Castle in Camden on Wednesday, December 29, and made our trip down from Lincolnshire well worthwhile – even if it was only an abbreviated set in a typically busy night on the cramped backroom stage of London’s famous music venue.
MelonHeadMan is a five-piece band from Tonbridge, inspired by souther rock legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet and Raging Slab. Front-man is Simon Savage and, in his own word from the band’s Myspace site, MelonHeadMan ‘sing songs about bad doctors, medicine men, and wild-hearted women.’
If you’re a southern rocker then it’s worth catching up with MelonHeadMan. There’s a bunch of shows already lined up for 2011. Check out for gigs plus details on their new album ‘The Good and The Bad.’
