Elbow Strike - (2013) Planning Great Adventures

Elbow Strike, as the name suggests offers a hard hitting rock funk sound, precise, decisive and unique. With this album, the latest project by Chris T Bradley, songwriter, musician and globetrotter. Show three years of experimental work between composition and completion ‘Planning Great Adventures’ emerges as bright and sharp as a lightning bolt. With its 11 powerful songs ranging from stoner rock, hard rock, grunge, southern rock and beyond.

‘Planning Great Adventures’ is a concept album. It lends itself to a childhood fascination of Chris T Bradleys’ the main theme being ‘Aliens’. As a young boy, he first heard the stories of alleged sightings, the conspiracy’s, the hidden facts. This intrigued him greatly and he continued with his path to gain further knowledge. Special Guest in this Album E1Ten on vocal, Front man of ‘Gotcha AllStarz, who also collaborated with Funkadelik and George Clinton. Marc "Swazi" Sokpolie “Track Addicts” on Bass.

The elements and originality that characterize the project are supplied mainly by the personality of Chris T Bradley, who has toured throughout America, Europe and Asia . It was during these travels and with his attentive ear and his ability to incorporate an entire international music vibe, all was absorbed and adapted to make it his own. This culminated in a recipe absolutely personal and unique.

Funky, groovy and soulful are the best words I can use to describe Elbow Strike's debut album Planning Great Adventures. Imagine Clutch mixed with a bit of Deep Purple riding a grunge comet to Mars. Really, combining elements from just about every genre into one cohesive eargasm. Which, to some people might seem as misdirection. I see it as the future of rock, and a solid album from start to finish. Keeping me interested and entertained. Released by the good folks at Go Down Records. Totally recommended, Check this stuff out!
