Rogerthat is a rock-reggae band that shakes every room they play in. A band that could have come from just about any era. Their contemporaries could be the Black Crowes or the Black Keys. Anything from the Woodstock era, Marley and Lee Scratch Perry or the steel blues of Muddy Waters (circa Electric Mud)… if you could mash the raw electric, psychedelic rock-reggae rep’s of those, you’d get close to the quartet
Rogerthat are back in Australia in August and Sept to mix their peyote and melt minds. On a national tour to prop the release of The Desert’s Call, their debut album (out thru MGM).
The band are currently in Europe for a month long run after smoking it in Canada – 9 gigs in 2 weeks thru West Canada to rooms full of RT converts.
While they were in Vancouver RT were invited into Fader studios after a local producer had his head bent by the band at the esteemed Richards on Richards venue (the band were well chuffed when they saw Rodriguez was playing the same venue the following week).
They recorded 2 new tracks including their life changing version of the Willie Dixon/Stones classic, “I Just Want to Make Love To You” which will emerge somewhere shortly. The guys also went into Calgary’s radio station CJSR and Vancouver radio, Evolution 107.9
This week the band will be going into Radio Amsterdam to follow up their acoustic live show they did in May last year. This leg of the tour also takes in Bournemouth, Newquay and London â€“ places the band went real well on their run thru last year.
New single, 19, has picked up play across the stations that gave Green Room air time: FBi, PBS, RRR and ZZZ . The Desert’s Call has already been Album of The Week on 2BOB radio.
