Armed And Ready – Kerrang! 1982 MIKE SMITH
IN THE wake of all yer Straywolfs ‘n’ Lonewolfs and two different strains of Wolfs comes the latest in the Wolf-pack: Shywolf.
Based in the Heanor area, Shywolf are the most recent incarnation of the legen-dary mid-late 70’s group Spoonful. The band took the name Shywolf early this year after they were repeatedly mistaken for one of several Oi bands who shared their previous title Blitz the name under which they supported the likes of Budgie and Tom Robinson (who?)
Shywolf are Phil Toone – (Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary Special), Steve Littlewood (Fender Precision Bass) and Jay Melbourne (Yamaha ‘700’ Drum Kit). They’ve just released a double A-side featuring ‘Lucretia’ (The first HM song about the Borgia’s?) and ‘California Jam’ and it shouldn’t be long before it’s a firm fixture in HM charts up and down the country.
