MUSIC: IT'S SIMPLY

OUR PASSION

THE STORY SO FAR...

About us - not of the history of music, that would take far too long.

Strange how things happen sometimes, isn't it.

 

The two members of the new band met when one was doing a his day job for the other. They got talking about various things, not least Dave's role as member of The Skarlets, an excellent and entertaining Reading-based ska covers band with a big following (www.theskarlets.co.uk).

 

Dave left The Skarlets in late 2013, but his desire to continue to make music happily coincided with Roy's growing interest in audio technology and guitar playing.

 

So they thought "why not?" And the result is the Gin Factory - a name that derives from their mutual appreciation of distilled Juniper juice.

OUR HEROES

Doffing our caps to music's big hitters.

Seventies

Eighties

And others...

The glam, the glitter and the drugs. But enough of the contents of our bedside cabinets. Bowie, Bolan and Iggy rocked our world, with disco and soul playing a major part of the soundtrack to our lives.

The mullets were terrible, granted. But there was some great music to be heard. The ska influence continues with Madness peaking, while "pop" discovered electronica in a big way.

Let's not forget the legacy of the pioneers who informed all that went after them. Buddy Holly, Cliff's dad Little Richard and Chuck Berry to name just some of the legends of music.
