‘The Dead Bone Ramblers’ are a rockabilly/country bop band formed in February 2012 by ex-‘Cordwood Draggers’ frontman Honest Hal (Mick Cocksedge) and ‘Slick 49’s’ double bass player Steve Whitworth. They have had various guitar pickers prior to Gordon Doel (from the Doel Brothers) taking up the reins in early 2013.
Their live set consists of mainly original material and some well chosen (and well played) covers. Hal's vocal delivery puts me in mind of how ’Sid King and The Five Strings’ sounded in their heyday in the mid-fifties. He isn’t a growler vocally, when he delivers these songs, he sings them - not only very well, but most importantly with feeling, so you can believe what he is telling you in the lyrics.
You can be the best singer in the business, but if you don't have the band to back you up then you may as well hang up your blue suedes and go back to driving a truck!
Gordon does an excellent job on lead guitar, his pickin’ is top of the class stuff, but not so over-the-top that it takes over and kills the overall sound of the band. Add to that Steve’s rhythmic slappin’ bass and you have is the ‘Dead Bone Ramblers’; three musicians playing their music the way they want to...with a 1950's kick.
