“Rock and Roll doesn't need saving; the cure's right here." That's what David Fricke, the legendary Rolling Stone journalist said of The Len Price 3, an English pop band who deliver instantly memorable tunes with a vintage pop feel. With an ever growing and ferociously loyal world-wide following, twelve years and five albums under their belts, they remain the best kept secret in show business.
Their new release, ‘Kentish Longtails’ namechecks a piece of local folklore concerning a curse allegedly placed upon the people of Strood by Thomas à Becket which condemned the children of this town on the banks of the Medway to be born with tails. Thankfully tail-less, but with tall tales and colourful harmonies intact, The Len Price 3 have created an album full of timeless melodic gems with plenty of punk rock oomph and a sprinkling of sonic weirdness. Expect shiny pop hooks and rich lyrical content laden with wry social observations and acid tongued retorts.
Glenn said, “With this album we took a slightly different approach. Firstly, I chose to pretend I was writing for a different band on several songs, which was a liberating experience, and we also recorded most of the tracks ourselves in Neil's shed and Steve's garage. It was like three lads messing around with a tape recorder in their first band, so very relaxed and with a looser vibe “
