Hundred Seventy Split
Si esibiranno : Sabato 21 Luglio
HUNDRED SEVENTY SPLIT’ featuring Woodstock Legend and founding member of Ten Years After Leo Lyons with Joe Gooch and Damon Sawyer
‘Hundred Seventy Split’ is an exciting, high energy Blues/Rock power trio showcasing the combined talents of Joe Gooch on guitar/vocals, Leo Lyons on bass and Damon Sawyer on drums:
The band was formed in 2010 by bassist and ‘Woodstock Legend’ Leo Lyons who, along with Alvin Lee, is an original and founding member of the band ‘Ten Years After’.
Joe Gooch played with TYA for eleven years after Alvin Lee left the band. Leo and Joe initially formed a song-writing partnership to write for TYA and have continued writing together ever since. They both resigned from Ten Years After at the end of 2013.
The third band member is drummer Damon Sawyer, an in demand session musician and recording engineer, who has played with far too many people to mention.
Hundred Seventy Split’s debut record ’The World Won’t Stop’ was released in 2010.
A second CD simply titled, HSS was released in February 2014
The live double CD ‘The Road’, released in February 2015, reached #1 in the Amazon, Germany ‘New Blues CD charts’
CD number four ‘Tracks, is released on October 14th. New material from this record along with TYA classic songs and HSS favorites will be debuted in the live set on the upcoming November tour
‘Hundred Seventy Split’ was formed to play music that rocks outside of the TYA box with no compromise.
Leo Lyons born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in November 1943, Leo became a professional musician at the age of 16 and as a founding member of the band Ten Year After has been an on-stage eyewitness to some of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history. In 1962 with his band The Jaybirds along with guitarist Alvin Lee he performed at The Star Club, Hamburg, Germany where only a week earlier The Beatles had polished up their act. Leo was hired to play in the club’s house band with Tony Sheridan and yet still found time to guest at the Top Ten Club with guitarist Albert Lee.
Like The Beatles, The Jaybirds returned home to England, made the move from their hometown to London and secured their first recording contract with legendary record producer Joe Meek. From 1963 to 1966, as well as playing and managing The Jaybirds, Leo worked as a session musician, toured as a sideman with pop acts of the day, appeared in a play in London’s West End and played a residency with poll winning British Jazz Guitarist Denny Wright.
In 1967 with a name change to Ten Years After, a residency at London’s famous Marquee Club and a debut album out on Deram Records, the band were soon to build up a huge following in Europe. Fillmore West and Fillmore East founder Bill Graham heard a copy of the band’s first album and immediately sent a letter offering to book Ten Years After into his historic venues in San Francisco and New York. They were also one of the first rock groups to be part of the Newport Jazz Festival. At Newport and on tour TYA performed with Nina Simone, Roland Kirk, Miles Davis and other jazz legends barnstorming across the US.
In August of the same year their now legendary encore “ I’m Goin’ Home” was captured on film at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, exposing their jazz blues rock amalgam to an even larger audience of movie goers who were blown away by the intensity of the band’s performance when the academy award winning documentary was released. Their ten-minute appearance in the film is an acknowledged highlight and established Ten Years After a place in rock history. The band’s albums are still available and all have reached Gold or Platinum status.
Joe Gooch is familiar to most from his work over the last seven years with rock legends Ten Years After. Having toured the world and recorded four albums with the highly respected rock veterans, Joe has now embarked on a new collaboration with bass player/writer Leo Lyons. Hundred Seventy Split is an exciting high energy blues/rock extravaganza that showcases Gooch and Lyons in their most exciting incarnation to date.
Joe grew up in a musical environment due to his parents being keen jazz, blues and classical music fans. The sound track to his early years was made up of artists and composers such as Stephan Grappeli, Django Rhineheart, Robert Johnson, Debussi, Steely Dan and John Mayall.
By thirteen, taking his music seriously, he enrolled on a course of classical guitar lessons. The disciplines he learnt were a good grounding for him, but he soon realized his interest lay outside of the classical sphere and moved towards other styles including rock and blues. At first, influenced by his childhood heroes, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy and later Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci and Larry Carlton amongst others, Joe experimented with various musical styles, and was constantly looking for new ideas and inspiration to expand and improve his techniques.
He strives relentlessly to be a better player and to express himself with an individual voice. Joe can communicate his emotions through strong, energetic playing, and gives a sensational dynamic to his new outfit Hundred Seventy Split.
Joe and Leo both resigned from Ten Years After at the end of 2013 and to celebrate a new beginning Hundred Seventy Split are releasing in February a new CD, simply titled, HSS.
Hundred Seventy Split drummer Damon Sawyer must be one of the busiest guys on the music scene.
His career started at the age of 11 by taking lessons from jazz players Alan Ganley, Bill Castle and Asia’s Trevor Thornton. From the age of 13 he was already gigging and at the age of 18 was working with many bands including pit-work with touring musical shows - West Side Story for one - and playing with The Berkshire Youth Jazz Orchestra alongside Ben Castle and Don Weller.
The year 2000 was spent mostly in Brazil, where he hired a recording studio and session players to complete his first solo album “Struttin’ South” inspired by his love of blues, funk and Latin.
Having run a very successful drum school based in at South Hill Park Arts Centre, where he taught all styles from rock and funk to jazz and Latin, Damon moved into recording and production and now operates his own state-of-the-art recording studio in Hurst, Berkshire.
Between his schedule of teaching, recording, and working with HSS, Damon has found time to guest with numerous blues namesm such as Sonny Black's Blues Band, and with Chicago blues acts Dave Spector, Detra Farr, Jimmy Dawkins and Mojo Buford from Muddy Waters' band.
He has also appeared with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings for Atlantic Records, Soul Review at the O2, and the Led Zep reunion gig backing Paul Rodgers, Sam Moore and others.

Gli Atomic Rooster nascono nel 1969 su iniziativa di Vincent Crane e Carl Palmer, che già suonavano insieme nei Crazy World di Arthur Brown. A Crane, tastierista e Palmer, batterista, si aggrega il bassista Nick Graham. Così assestato, il trio incide il suo primo disco, che porta come titolo il loro stesso nome, e che la critica considera il loro miglior lavoro. La musica è riconducibile a un certo rock duro con risvolti mistici ed occulti, secondo uno dei modelli tipici del periodo e tentato con maggior fortuna anche dai contemporanei Black Sabbath. Subito dopo l'incisione, a breve distanza l'uno dall'altro Graham e Palmer se ne vanno. Palmer raggiungerà Keith Emerson e Greg Lake per dare vita ad uno dei più famosi gruppi di rock progressivo degli anni settanta. Graham entrerà negli Skin Alley.
Crane raduna attorno a sé altri musicisti e prosegue azzeccando nel 1971 un paio di brani che oltre ad accrescere la fama del gruppo, dà loro un certo riscontro commerciale. Dura poco, però. I dischi che seguono non si discostano molto dalla sufficienza; ma le difficoltà sono soprattutto di carattere personale, a causa dei disturbi caratteriali di Crane che lo portano a cambiare in continuazione i musicisti attorno a sé. In tal modo non si crea il necessario affiatamento e la qualità del gruppo scade sempre più. Il chitarrista Steve Bolton lasciò il gruppo alla fine del 1972, e fu sostituito da John Goodsall (in seguito suonerà con i Brand X) che assunse lo pseudonimo di Johnny Mandala. Nel 1973 produssero l'album Nice 'n' Greasy nel quale era presente il singolo "Save Me", una rivisitazione in stile funk del brano "Friday the 13th". Dopo circa due anni che non venivano prodotte canzoni, la Drawn Records cessò i rapporti con la band a gli Atomic Rooster cominciarono a sciogliersi. Dopo un tour, Farlowe, Mandala e Parnell uscirono dal gruppo. Il singolo "Tell Your Story, Sing Your Song", uscì nel 1974 a nome di "Vincent Crane's Atomic Rooster" per Decca. Per di più nel 1975, durante una tournée degli Atomic Rooster in Italia, Crane si defila con la cassa, piantando in asso gli altri. Tra i musicisti rimasti a piedi si trova Rick Parnell, batterista, che deciderà di conseguenza di fermarsi in Italia e finirà per suonare prima con i Nova e poi coi New Trolls. Per il resto degli anni settanta Crane inciderà altri album, sempre a nome Atomic Rooster, senza più suscitare interesse. Tra i musicisti che hanno ruotato nel gruppo vanno ricordati Ginger Baker (batterista, ex Cream) e Chris Farlowe, cantante che raggiungerà una certa fama collaborando con altri musicisti celebri (notevoli soprattutto le sue prestazioni nei Colosseum).
Atomic Rooster are flying high.
CAMBRIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL REVIEW
Much conversation and anticipation was focused on a certain reunion at
this year's Cambridge Rock Festival with none other than prog rock
legends Atomic Rooster scheduled to take to the main stage on the second
Rooster were one of the seminal British prog rock bands of the 70s with
much of their success, appeal and writing being attributed to Hammond
Organ maestro Vincent Crane. Originally playing with The Crazy World
Of Arthur Brown on huge hit 'Fire' with Carl Palmer, Vincent would soon
leave Brown and put together Rooster.
The band had 18 subsequent line-up changes and Crane was the only
constant member so his sad passing in 1989 basically marked the end of
the band... or did it?
Camp HRH, March 18 2017
Opening with Sleeping For Years, Pete French sounded amazing from the
start. One song in to Atomic Rooster's set and it was hard to imagine a
better vocalist all weekend.
Tomorrow Night set off the psychedelic dancing brigade, which only
added to the fantastic atmosphere. This was a special show from a special
It's no secret that Steve Bolton is a master axeman and he led the band
through a stunning version of Black Snake before unleashing
an instrumental in honour of Vincent Crane. Save Me and Devil's
Answer proved to be the perfect crowd-pleasers but what could possibly
top these classic songs so early in the set?
The answer was bullish versions of Decision Indecision and VUG before
the iconic Death Walks Behind You. The evening was moving on at
lightning speed and the party had already built up to a crescendo for most
of the Proggers present.
But the Rooster were far from finished: Head In The Sky and Break The
Ice maintained the pace and proved Prog is not for the faint hearted.
Of course there was the familiar complaint that none of the band's original
members were on stage. So what? Two of them were there when the
Rooster were at their 70s peak and only the absence of Crane threatens to
stretch the current line-up's credibility. Crane aside, this is the real deal.
The real Rooster.
The greatest hits set ended with The Price and Breakthrough sparking
calls for more. It's easy to overlook a band that hasn't put out a studio
album since 1983 but on this form every rock fan should revisit the
One of the classic Rooster lineups with Pete French and Steve Bolton

Steve Bolton Cambridge 2016
With the blessing of Vincent's widow Jean, vocalist French and guitarist
Bolton were approached by Peter Barton and Gary Marks of Rock Artist
Management to put the band back together, a daunting task without Crane
himself present and with a very small pool of players out there on the
scene in the classical/R&B style, finding a replacement looked almost
impossible, however, along with the addition of a bassist and new
drummer to the line-up, the impossible has been achieved.
Alongside French and Bolton are new boys Bo Walsh on drums, Shug
Millige on bass duties (a first since 1983) and Hammond organ player
Christian Madden whose work with Steve Cropper, The Animals and
psychedelic band The Earlies is of note.
With this being Rooster's first reformation and festival performance in
over 35-years and French and Bolton's first time onstage doing Rooster
songs in 45-years, this was certainly set to be an interesting and provoking
Opening with the ironically titled 'Sleeping For Years', and the blazing
sound of the Crumar Mojo (Hammond clone) blazed through the PA to the
capacity crowd's approval. Setting the pace for the evening, the boys
quickly locked into each others groove.
With only two performances together and three rehearsals this was
playing on the wire at its finest. With intricate time signature changes,
runs, stops and neo classical solos, Madden had his work cut out for him
on organ. Along with comping piano with his left hand, the focus from
him was a wonder to watch.
Pete French, the elder statesman and consummate professional that he is,
engaged with the audience and dryly informed them of the history of the
band whilst Bolton chipped in humourously with anecdotes about the past.
There was a feeling of wonderment and incredible excitement actually
hearing these songs live and to be witness to this felt special. Songs such
as 'Death Walks Behind You' and 'Tomorrow Night' still have the same
appeal and relevance as they did over 40-years ago and French and Bolton
still effortlessly carry them off and with the new recruits onboard we are
seeing Rooster at a very high level musically.
Bo Walsh later spoke of how he remembers the artwork from the Rooster
albums and the impact hearing the songs for the first time had while
Madden, a self obsessed prog junkie whose influences extend from his
favourite band Gentle Giant, Curved Air and ELP to the jazz fusion greats
such as Chick Corea and more recently Cory Henry expressed his undying
love for Rooster and how pleased he is to have the gig.
French and Bolton have brought back to life an amazing back catalogue of
music. Standout tracks tonight included 'Tomorrow Night', 'Black Snake',
'Save Me', 'Devil's Answer', 'Death Walks Behind You' and
With talk of further dates and a new album, Atomic Rooster could well be
around for a while and judging by their gut bursting, fist pumping
performance at Cambridge Rock, so they should be.
