Spudgun Assassins based in Chichester, West Sussex, England were formed in May 2008. The members are Tex Nash (lead vocals), Steve Swatton (bass and backing vocals), Graham Hutchason, aka Hutch (guitars and keys) and Graham Linn (drums)
The band have achieved their own style of melodic/mainstream rock.
Initially, the intention was to concentrate on creating a live set of cover tracks in order to start playing live, however the band were immediately drawn into writing their own material. Although collectively, their influences are varied, a natural writing chemistry was obvious from the start and the ‘Spudgun Assassins’ sound was formed.
With an emphasis on strong melodies and hooks, all songs are written, recorded and produced by the band. The ‘Spudgun Assassins’ 6 track EP is the band’s first release and is available to download here at FFM as well as all major sites and as a CD from their website. Plans are already in place for future recordings as well as getting out and playing more live gigs.
Their influences are quite varied from The Beatles to Rush and they love the big produced sound that you get from bands like the Eagles and Boston.
Spudgun Assassins are looking to play local festivals next year and would love to support a major band.
