The Wanton Bishops – Sun Rising

wanton

“Nader and Eddy met in a bar in their hometown of Beirut, Lebanon. Well, technically, they met outside of a bar, in the middle of a fistfight. Luckily they weren’t fighting one another, and their friendship soon developed over cheap tequila and a shared love of stompy blues music and rock and roll. Such was the beginning of The Wanton Bishops – Nader, the very epitome of a howling blues man with classic rock roots, and Eddy, an anglophilic guitarist with a passion for contemporary British and American rock music. Nader’s influences ranged from Muddy Waters to the Rolling Stones, and he was creating music that took the listener head first into wailing harmonicas, raw vocals, psychedelic atmospheres and stomping garage-rock riffs. With Eddy’s influence, Nader’s songs soon emerged from the swamps into a musical landscape currently inhabited by bands like The Black Keys and The White Stripes, yet with an original flavor that was unmistakably a unique animal from a different part of the world.”Source
