The River Dee may not be tidal, nor is it deep enough to surf, but somehow, somewhere, Chester groovers The Suns have managed to tap into the spirit of Link Wray, The Trashmen and The Ventures to claim the forgotten vices of tremolo abuse and spring reverb addiction as their own…

“The Suns are one of the few bands around making real garage music with a totally contemporary feel. Live, they’re f**kin brilliant. They’re the kind of band I want to be in” (Clint Boon of the Inspiral Carpets & Xfm)

“Apart from the last song i thought they were shite” (Some bloke stood at the bar at the catholic club)

“A little bit of Jagger’s swagger, a hint of Hendrix and a double dose of Morrison’s madness” (Telfords Warehouse)

“Jono’s deep croon, heavy use of maracas and Rutter’s glorious spaghetti-western guitar lines all pile up into an intoxicating stew that manages the rare and impressive trick of being universally likeable yet intriguingly original.” (Manchester Music Dash review)
