Stick in the Wheel – Common Ground (Out now on Static Caravan Recordings)


Stick in the Wheel - Common Ground

Formats: Digital / 7″ Vinyl

Label: Static Caravan Recordings

Release Date: 23rd February 2015

Stick in the Wheel are a raw and uncompromising London folk band. This Spring, they release a limited custom-sleeved 7″ and download in collaboration with Static Caravan Recordings. Headed by Nicola Kearey (vocals) and Ian Carter (dobro and production), they have recruited seasoned folk singer Fran Kempster (harmony vocals), Si Foote (percussion), and Joolie Wood (fiddle) to create a record that is utterly real, a large and intentional step away from overblown folk floweriness, back to the fundamental essence of storytelling through song, by the people for the people.

With no actual bass player they asked members of the audience to fill in on tea-chest bass. After a few gigs the band were invited to support rockabilly star Imelda May at Bush Hall and later at Koko, Camden. They recruited bass player Colin Young and guitarists Jimmy Curry and Sam Soper (who’d produced the cassette together) to play at the gigs.
