Kav and the Band of Blaggers
'KAV proves why Kasabian have chosen him to open for them at O2 Academy Brixton"
"Black Rebel Motorcycle Club-esque rock sleaze... Glorious Garage Rock”
TIME OUT London
"KAV is one of those one in a million artists that just exudes talent... Imagine if Bob Dylan was young in modern times & he had an addiction to sleaze and you’d be half way to understanding KAV’s sound... Simple, perfectly executed sleazy rock with hidden depths & a backpack full of attitude. Sick"
‘Punky Britpop with style’
‘KAV combines the Speed of the Scream with the Swagger of the Stones...’
This Blagger is a Latter-Day Jagger
‘Gritty Flavoured Dylan Rock’
Kevin Bronson – LA Buzz Bands
A beefy sound that mixes US punk à la The Stooges and earthy Brit rock.... a mix of dirty bluegrass instrumentals, killer riffs & a sing-along vibe that smacked of early Primal Scream. Eat your heart out, Ryan Adams.
