The Rumble Strips
An English rock band from Tavistock, Devon with a lot of heart, The Rumble Strips, landed in music industry with a different approach. With a fresh sound built around the acoustic guitar and dramatic vocal style of Charlie Waller, the soulful horn work of Henry Clark and Tom Gorbutt, and the sharp, concise drumming of Matthew Wheeler, the bands line-up has been together since 2004.
The Rumble Strips were formed by Waller and took their name from Rubmle Strips, narrow-slotted paths on the sides of highways that produce noise and vibrations when weary drivers roll over them.
Their fortunes rose to a new when they signed to a London independent label, Transgressive Records. Currently The Rumble Strips are based in London.
The Rumble Strips lead singer Charlie Waller was involved in music from an early age. His initial inspirations included Lou Reeds Transformer and bands like Adam & the Ants. While Charlie Waller developed an interest in songwriting as a teenager, things moved further when he moved to London for Arts College and played with his band from Devon, the Action Heroes.
In 2004, having played together for 9 years, the Action Heroes felt the need for change. With the former keyboardist Harry Dwyer spending too much time on his Morris Minor, Waller began writing and playing again with former Tavistock friend Tom Gorbutt. Harry Dwyer later went on to direct most of the Rumble Strips videos.
To complete the line-up for the Rumble Strips, Charlie recruited Henry Clark as drummer. The Rumble Stripss organic and soulful approach could not get off to garner the attention of the listening ears, and the band failed to gain the immediate audience.
Around this time, Waller became a member of Vincent Vincent and the Villains with flat-mate and fellow singer/songwriter Vincent Vincent. After playing for some time with both bands, he eventually left both and concentrated on the Rumble Strips.
With a consistent lineup, the band came up with their debut single, Motocycle. Followed to the release, they embarked on a tour to UK with the likes of Dirty Pretty Things, The Young Knives, and The Zutons.
After the completion of the line-up, the Rumble Strips were signed by Island-distributed Fallout Records in 2006. Fallout Records, a subsidiary of Universal Island Records issued the bands EP, Cardboard Colored Dreams in the last quarter of that year.
Also at this point, Wallers old school friend Sam Mansbridge was brought into the lineup for the Rumble Strips to beef up the live sound. The bands music began gaining momentum and the members started getting acclaim.
Two weeks prior to the release of the Rumble Strips debut album, was issued a single Boys and Girls in Love. The song broke the doors down for the band and got off to positive reviews both by audience and critics.
On September 10, 2007 by Fallout Records, the Devon-based Rumble Strips released their debut album; they called it Girls and Weather.
The album was a fusion of happy melodies coupled with bittersweet lyrics. Some critics hailed the album as prepared for adults who want an excuse to behave like kids again. Most of the album featured original work, though the track Motorcycle was first released in 2005.
The bubbly pop album also spawned a single Alarm Clock later. The band has recently re-issued its debut single Motorcycle which reached at number 46 in the UK singles chart.
The Rumble Strips are working on their upcoming album which is expected to be released in 2009. Listen to the potential music of the Rumble Strips that will surely run you over and make you rock.
