Gig Of The Week: Four Wheel Drive
WHO: Four Wheel Drive
WHERE: London 100 Club
WHEN: Tuesday, May 4
The highly rated and hotly tipped Twickenham rock’n'rollers (Aerosmith meets The Faces) are aiming for a right old touchdown, when they play their most ambitious gig to date.
“We’re doing it for the launch of our new video, for the song White Lines,” explains bassist/vocalist Jamie. “We wanted to do it at a good venue, with the facilities to allow us to show the video, and the 100 Club fits perfectly. It was a bit ambitious for a band like us to do a venue this big, but the way everything’s shaping up, I reckon we’ll fill the place.”
The evening was supposed to see Four Wheel Drive plus two support bands playing. But all that’s now changed. So 4WD will do a 45-50 minute set, after which the video (directed by Sara Harding) will be screened and then Krusher will get everyone boogying the night away on the decks of steel.
“Obviously we’re still promoting our debut album (High Roller), so most of the set will be based around that. But we might throw in a couple of new songs we’ve been working on as well.”
The band – Jamie, guitarists Ben and Paddy and drummer Will – have just finished a German tour, and have plenty of plans in hand to keep touring through the summer.
“We also want to tie up a better distribution deal for the record, to make sure it gets wider exposure.”
