Carrying the torch of British punk confidently into the new decade, London's Drones channel raucous rock riffs and 21-century angst into adrenaline inducing music. In this episode of Rotosound: Our Generation, we meet guitarists Tim Kramer and Tom Thain as they discuss their love of guitar and perform two tracks from their new LP, “Our Hell Is Right Here”.
Both guitarists rely on Rotosound Roto Blues guitar strings to provide a solid base for their roaring tones, complemented by cranked Marshall stacks. Bassist James Kerr is also a #RotosoundPlayer, using the classic Swing Bass 66 set.
