"D'Bomb!" - Abraham Lincoln
Revolution Rabbit Deluxe (RRD) started as a solo project but evolved into a four-piece band from Blackwood, in the heart of the South Wales valleys. Their brand of melody-driven innovative indie and alternative rock has been garnering excellent reviews, along with regular airplay on the internet. They’ve recently been played on the BBC and they are hopefully poised to conquer mainstream radio.
The first single from The Great Divide.
RRD’s main influences are The Beatles and Eels for melodic inspiration and The Pixies and Smashing Pumpkins for rawness and the power and drive of the rhythm section. The lyrical twists of Divine Comedy and XTC are also prominent influences. Comparisons to Feeder, early Manic Street Preachers, Super Furry Animals have been suggested by reviewers. RRD are not content with sitting back. Their fourth album, The Great Divide, is heading into uncharted seas with experiments in form and content. Due to be released in early 2022, this album seems more nuanced and delicate in places but still retains the hard edged grittiness of the first three albums. Tales from Armageddonsville, their debut album, came about when Leon West, producer of Goldy Lookin’ Chain, approached RecRock for artists suitable for release on Amazon, Spotify, and iTunes. With an album ready to go, RRD were put forward. The collaboration will continue with other RecRock artists soon to be available.
Like the Monkees, RRD live in one house and in-between writing, recording and gigging, they tour the world looking for crimes to solve. They lost their summer jobs as archaeologists on Time Team after a drunken lunchtime argument with Tony Robinson led to an unfortunate incident with a toilet, some dynamite, and a livid TV host. To this day, Tony twitches violently when he passes a lavatory.
RRD practice their thousand-yard stares.
