IF you don’t like Trucker Diablo we don’t like you! Just kidding, we love all of you Constant Readers, but Trucker Diablo are special.
Carving a path to ever greater recognition the Big Truck has shifted into high gear and getting ready to roll into the summer with the re-issue of two albums in a double CD package ‘Devil Songs’ – combining The Devil Rhythm and Songs of Iron, now that the band has regained control of those albums.
But the Big Truck has unloaded a new cargo to whet our appetites in the shape of new single ‘Other Side Of The City’, a track dripping with class and oozing out a demand to join in. Carlsberg don’t do music, but if they did…
Written in the formative times when the two aforesaid albums were wowing the rock world, it is out, officially, on April 26th, but you can watch the video here.
Tom explained the song’s origins: “I remember when we wrote City. Simon and I were in my old rock shed jamming and reminiscing about the old days, growing up, all our favourite films and music. Simon showed me this riff he had, and I started jamming and when he played the chorus, the first lyric I sang is still the lyric today. It was like magic and we loved it.
“We pride ourselves on good songs no matter how heavy or light, the song is king and we are proud of how it turned out.”
And damn proud they should be!
