Leaving a session player’s life in Australia for Japan in search of something else, guitarist/singer Luke Cuerden was inspired to create something from the clash of neon and old tradition in Tokyo and the other parts of Japan his travels took him to. It felt less lame than writing a diary, so instead, he wrote songs.
Playing half of the songs that landed on the first album and a mish mash of covers from Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Muddy Waters, The Beatles, Stray Cats and Stevie Ray Vaughan, RDB did their first show at Jiro’s Blues Bar outside Tokyo to a small crowd of locals. Between song banter was a challenge!
The rest is history? Nope. It’s just the beginning. Returning to Australia Luke enlisted his old friend and touring buddy; Koritni drummer Chris Brown who put down the drum tracks for the album. Though with only 2 permanent members, the band has a large, extended family from far and wide; Australia, Japan and America.
Difficult to categorise, genre-hopping RDB might be described as blues infused alt rock maybe? Somewhere between The Black Crowes, QOTSA, G&R and the blues.
