|Artist:||Snowy White and the White Flames|
British born guitarist Snowy White (Born Terence Charles
White) first became interested in music at the age of eleven
when he was inspired by blues musicians Buddy Guy and
B.B. King. He pursued his blues style in a number of bands
however during the seventies Snowy made a reputation for
himself playing numerous sessions for a wide variety of
musicians such as Al Stewart, Cliff Richard and Peter Green.
More famously Snowy toured as second guitarist with Pink
Floyd augmenting the bands sound on the tours to promote
the Animals and The Wall albums. By late 1979 however
tiring of the session scene Snowy accepted the offer to join
the rock band Thin Lizzy. Snowy recorded two albums with
Thin Lizzy (Chinatown and Renegade) and completed a
number of successful tours before deciding that the bands
music and more importantly their lifestyle wasn't to his taste.
He formed his own band featuring drummer Richard Bailey
and bassist Kuma Harada. With this band he recorded his
first solo album entitled white Flames. A single lifted from
that album (Bird Of Paradise) became a surprise hit reaching
the British top ten in early 1983.
From here Snowy White recorded a number of blues based
albums all of which were warmly received by the blues
audience his records are aimed at.
Keep Out We’re Toxic was recorded in 1999 with Snowy’s
band the White Flames. Considered to be one of his most
powerful albums by his large and dedicated fan base Keep
Out We’re Toxic finds Snowy working his way through an
excellent set of well written modern blues and R n B songs.
This release has been unavailable for some time and this
