10. The Graveltones – I Want Your Love

Despite using the above photo for promo purposes, The Graveltones are in fact a butt-ugly pair of male personages.Drawing on influences as diverse as John Lee Hooker, Captain Beefheart and Queens Of The Stone Age, London-based Australian Jimmy O’s vocals provide a modern-day take on the traditional blues themes of love and despair, accompanied by stomping, fuzzed-out, low-end guitar riffs. Meanwhile, the man only known as Mikey brings an equal part of boisterous, relentless energy combined with infectious rhythms on his well-worn drumkit.
