Product Details

Product Description

2012 release from the British power trio. It's been nearly five years since Little Barrie has released new material, but King of the Waves definitively proves that it's been absolutely worth the wait. Since 2007, the band has dedicated themselves to honing their musical reputations, doing everything from appearing live with Primal Scream to collaborations with the likes of Morrissey and Mark Ronson. Guitarist/frontman Barrie Cadogan and bassist/vocalist Lewis Wharton are joined on the album by the new addition of drummer/vocalist Virgil Howe, son of renowned Yes guitarist Steve Howe. The resulting sound produced by the band is as intensely electrifying as one might expect from such a dynamic and in-demand group of individuals. It calls to mind an old school Detroit rock 'n' roll showdown between Link Wray and The Creation, with the MC5 and Motown's best in attendance to cheer both sides, and the omnipresent threat of a killer wave lurking just overhead.

Little Barrie's best yet Aug. 11 2011
By Buzzman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Really a very strong album. I'll go ahead and say it, I Didn't love Stand your Ground. I own it and sure, there are some outstanding tracks on it, but as a whole I feel like it fell short of We are Little Barrie. I don't know the inner workings of the band, but it seems they have changed the lineup around on every release as far as who plays with Barrie. This combo of musicians really works for me, after a blasting/noisy/tough first track they really settle into a groove that improves upon their sound and songwriting that little barrie fans love. Just about every track has that funky, groovy vibe...but what is great about this record as opposed to the others is that they play with the tempo of the tracks and the "in your face" factor. The record really flows great, and its pretty much impossible not to get swept in the songs...really awesome guitar work and they jam out a few of the tracks which is quite satisfying. I bought this on vinyl and could not be happier about the sound quality...the entire production creates a different atmosphere than the other two records. This one is really raw and stripped down...which is great because you see quickly that the current line up for Little Barrie doesn't need help from fancy stuido equipment. They might as well be playing their songs live in your garage. I'd really encourage you to buy the CD or the vinyl, if these MP3s are like typical MP3s, your gonna be missing a lot on this record. I've been a big fan of little barrie since I found them in 2005, and I think this one is their best yet.

This is one of the best and most underrated albums in years. I rate it among the best albums I have ever heard.
Best little rock 'n' roll band you've never heard of! May 18 2014

WOW. For a mere trio of drums, bass and guitar, these gents can really knock it out. This is old-school Brit jamming rock meets disciplined verse-chorus structure, with hefty doses of garage, surf, psychedelia, and soul-tinged harmony vocals thrown in. (Ugh, describing music is always impossible!)

Barrie Cadogan (guitar, vocals, and chief songwriter) is Little Barrie's guiding light. A creative and accomplished guitarist on both the heavy jam and the melodic riff, his vocals are also great -- in that snarly, slightly nasal rasp that perfectly signifies classic Brit rock 'n' roll. The other band members (Lewis Wharton on bass and Virgil Howe on drums) also shine on their instruments, helping create the band's fabulous sonic swirls of sound and melody -- and of course keeping the beat front, center, and irresistible.

Standout tracks include "Surf Hell" (I defy you to keep your seat), "Tip It Over," (unbelievable live!) and "King of the Waves," which has a compelling psychedelic tinge a la Brian Jonestown Massacre.

This record has been out for 3 years already -- and a new one, "Shadow," is due out in late May 2014.

Also of interest: Barrie Cadogan also tours as lead guitarist with Primal Scream (since 2006); Virgil Howe is son of Yes's guitarist, Steve Howe.

I downloaded the CD not too long ago and I just can't stop listening. Just play the first song and enjoy.
