Swamp HouseNews & Reviews

On stage this week at The Stag & Hunter Hotel ‘Newcastle’s home of original live music’;

Friday, January 27th – Psyche Blues Rock with The Urban Chiefs ‘Grains Of Truth’ album launch with special guests Halfway Homebuoy, Grains of Truth is the fourth studio album from the NSW two piece and what a cracking 10 track album it is! The Chiefs will be officially releasing the album at The Stag & Hunter Hotel.

The Urban Chiefs are from Tamworth NSW. Blake Saban (Guitars & Vox) and Glendon Finlay (Drumcussion) have been changing people’s perspective of what a ‘band’ should look and sound like since 2009. The pairs huge sound is due to Blakes’ unique set up of playing his array of custom guitars through two guitar amps, a bass amp and an acoustic DI signal. Combine this with his powerhouse gravelly vocal stylings and Glendon’s’ tribal and at times frantic, percussive drum style and you have an Australian two-piece like no other. There is so much happening on stage that often people are mistaken in thinking that the guys are using samples or pre-recorded material but everything you hear is being produced by the Chiefs as it happens!
