Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell

Checking it Before Wrecking It - Johnny Gorilla of The Shovell

Fresh off the release of their eclectic record "Check 'em Before You Wreck 'em," we spend some quality time with the humorous, quirky and excitable singer/guitarist for Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell, Mr. Johnny Gorilla. We get a chance to talk the band, the music, the mascot, the industry and a couple other small things. Cheers, mate, drinks all around.
M.DREW: Walk me through this new record – what’s new for fans of your previous work?
JOHNNY GORILLA - Even better songs, riffs, energy, studio sound, musically nothing much has changed, just good old bass, drums and guitar heavy rock. We just upped everything a notch or two!
M.D: How has the sound of your band evolved from the last album to this one?

Album Review: Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell - "Check 'em Before You Wreck 'em"

The rock and metal revival movement that got off to a running start a couple years ago has continued in earnest, thriving into 2014. With the joyful reception of that material by fans and press in the past, it’s time to produce and prove sustainability.

Album Review: Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell - "Don't Hear It...Fear It!"

Throughout human history, whenever a cultural force rises to prominence, there is inevitably a counter-movement that rises to meet it. The Roman Empire had the numerous Gothic tribes, Persia was met by the Mongols, the British Empire squared off with various revolutionaries over the centuries, and the New England Patriots are seemingly opposed (and thankfully stymied,) by the New York Giants. Such is the irresistible yin and yang of the universe, the powerful but delicate balancing act of nature.
