Robert Gordon And Chris Spedding Raid Their Vault

It’s not too often that a British guitarist becomes a perfect foil for American artists but it does happen. And while the first such player to come to mind would be, of course, Albert Lee, no less permanent a presence has been kept for years by Chris Spedding who, for all his Albion credentials, managed to partner up with rockabilly singer Robert Gordon and work together, on and off, for longer than four decades. But while the two veterans spend much more time on-stage than in the studio, they amassed enough unreleased material to issue an entire album of these on November 25th.

Titled “Hellafied” and featuring a smattering of covers among the pair’s original pieces – penned separately – the platter’s tracks include a few co-writes with former BLUE ÖYSTER CULT drummer Albert Bouchard, who provided additional production, whereas one of the drummers on these recordings is the venerated Anton Fig. The results of their labor promise to be punchy to say the least.
