Caveman TV... is the name of the band and Caveman TV is the title track from their album.
This band initially formed around the partnership of Tony Reeves and JC Carroll; who began playing together in 2012 when they met at a jam in the cellar bar of the Constitution Club in Camden. This unlikely partnership between jazz rock and prog legend Reeves and film composer and post punk guitarist Carroll Is one of those partnerships that on paper should not work but on stage is fantastic.
Add to this mix The Only Ones guitarist and super-session man John Perry and drummer Nick Cash. (THE MEMBERS AND FAD GAGET) You get one of those eclectic mixes that make something special.
Tony (and his century-old double bass) bring an incredible six decades of experience, and provides grooves and solos that only a man of his stature can bring to a project. This is the man who helped rewrite English folk music on the groundbreaking "Folk Blues and Beyond" and "Midnight Man" with Davy Graham. Who was briefly a Blues Breaker with John Mayall ("Bare Wires"), who pioneered orchestral rock with "Cast Your Fate to the Wind", helped invent jazz fusion and prog rock with Coloseum, Greenslade and Curved Air.
While most people know JC Carroll as Mr Sound Of The Suburbs, the driving force behind The Members... JC is a passionate folk archivist multi-instrumentalist and songwriter whose talents are not easily contained in one band. His film CV includes films with Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp as well as five film scores for Julien Temple.
Add to this mix West Country maverick guitarist John Perry who cut his teeth supporting Hawkwind, who rewrote new wave and punk with the searing solo that introduces "Another Girl Another Planet," added his gun for hire guitar to Johnny Thunders, Evan Dando, Alejandro Escovedo and countless others and has more recently contributed to Chip Bakers soundtrack for the Brian Jones film.
Current Members drummer Nick Cash provides the back beat and locks down the grooves!
This album could be described as prog. It's a gumbo of folk, blues, hippie post punk and calypso that could only be the sound of Caveman TV. The title track is a wonderfully evocative song about lying on your back in the Pyrenees looking at the shooting stars in August. It is supported ably by a video of the band with shots of the Pyrenees and Stonehenge …it is the sort of album that could only be made in England with whimsical lyrics and a folk rock yearning… it should also carry a health warning as this album contains bass solos.
