After 18 years of working together, and with both Stevie and Alan currently enjoying successful solo projects, one perhaps wouldn’t be wrong in surmising that the best days ofTheNimmoBrothersas a band were well and truly behind them – but then one would also be well and truly mistaken! The truth is that thebrothersfrom Glasgow are very much back in business! In fact, as Stevie and Alan are always keen to point out, they never really left in the first place! Once againTheNimmoBrothersare out to show the world that the term "taking it easy" simply doesn’t exist in the vocabulary of one of Scotland’s finest exports since the great Frankie Miller and a couple of slightly more famousbrothersnamed Young!With arguably their finest collection of songs to date released in 2012 and recorded in Austin, Texas, with some of Austin’s most respected and sought after musicians in the shape of Jamie Oldaker (Eric Clapton) on drums, Michael Ramos (Robert Plant) on Hammond organ, Bill Whitbeck (Robert Earl Keen) and Jimmy Pettit (Joe Ely Band) on bass, the guys are well and truly back with a brand new album appropriately entitled.This last album in 2012"BrothertoBrother"showed yet again that when it comes to original blues rock,TheNimmoBrothershave nothing whatsoever to envy amongst their peers.
For this album Stevie and Alan have gone back to their roots with a collection of songs influenced by, in their own words,"everything we’ve ever listened to over the past 20 years"
From the seventies blues rock sounds of Free and Thin Lizzy to the more modern hard rocking of Nickelback and Thunder, there’s something for every classic rock fan in this latest opus of fine, original material as well as a couple of handpicked covers as a "tip of the hat" to the writers they have respected, admired and learned from over the years.
But as anyone who has ever seen thebrothersperform live will surely testify; when is it evernotexciting when these two musicians from Glasgow take to the stage in their own inimitable all or nothing fashion?
TheNimmoBrothersare quite simply and without doubtthebenchmark in modern UK blues - disappointment is most definitely not an option!
