Robin Guy . John McCoy . Bernie Tormé
You can call it Hard Rock, Heavy Rock, Biker Rock, Classic Rock,
Psychedelic Rock, Sleazy Rock, Hippy-Trippy-Folk Rock, Garage
Rock, Punk Rock...
Whatever, it still ROCKS! Which is exactly
what G M T do best.
Effortlessly, in fact.
surface, a simple three-piece, yet the pedigree of the members is
Bernie Tormé - Guitar God/ Psychedelic
Shredmeister/ Glam Punk Sleaze Rock Frontman. Universally known
for heroically stepping in & saving the day for Ozzy Osbourne,
when Randy Rhoads tragically died, world tours & international
fame as lead axe-man in Gillan; also forming the nucleus of
Desperado with Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider & ex Iron Mai
den drummer Clive Burr, as well as fronting his own bands
Electric Gypsies/ Tormé (with Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns/ Girl
fame), Bernie is renowned for bringing his punk vibe to the
arenas. He's also an Irish nutcase.
John McCoy - Lead
Bass/ Living Legend/ L arger Than Life. Quite frankly who John
hasn't played with, written for, or produced over the years isn't
worth writing about! A small few include Gillan, Mammoth, Samson,
Joey Belladonna (Anthrax), U.K. Subs, Atomic Rooster, Sun Red Sun
etc etc. A man mou ntain with a huger sound, it should also be
known that John McCoy has played on over 50 albums...!
Robin Guy - UK powerhouse drummer,
drumming since he was a glint in his Father's eye, a quick credit
check reveals rhythmical invol vement with such names as: Bruce
Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Faith No More, Lars Frederiksen
(Rancid), Casey Chaos (Amen), The Business, Rachel Stamp, All
About Eve, Martin Grech, SackTrick, Adam Ant, & many more! His
day job has included headlining Wacken Op en Air to 40,000
metalheads, surviving 55 shows in 60 days in the U.S., & playing
festivals in Belgium and Essex...on the same day! Robin's loud,
obnoxious style helps him fit perfectly between Bernie's wit, and
John's charm, in fact you could say G M T is a three-way marriage
gone horribly right!
Bernie: "Frankly it was going to take something really big to get
me off my lazy arse and into the studio. John and Robin and G M T
are that really big thing. G M T is big, loud, raw, rough, real,
exciting, delicate, and unbelievably heavy. We're recording it
just as it is: we don't need no stinking 1000 overdubs to create
that wall of sound, we just play."
John: "We popped out
for a couple of shows, to test the material and word got out - a
bunch of fans flew over from Denmark to see the show - seeing as
how Bernie & myself haven't been on stage together since '81, we
knew this had to be special. The Danish fans also brought their
50 albums for me to sign... I was happy to oblige!"
Robin: "The first time I met Bernie Tormé & John McCoy, I was
recording some session in Bernie's studio and we just clicked
right away - the music, the style, the rock n' roll, the humour
& vibes were right for one another (not to mention the free
flowing Jamesons...). Or maybe we are the only people that can
put up with each other... either way, the end result, for what
we have achieved in a very short space of time speaks for itself!
This album is gonna turn heads, as well as makin 'em bang!"
