Canned Heat

Canned Heat is a blues-rock/boogie band that formed in Los Angeles in 1965. The group has been noted for its own interpretations of blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson (1943 – 1970) and Bob Hite (1943 – 1981), who took the name from Tommy Johnson's 1928 Canned Heat Blues, a song about an alcoholic who has desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called "canned heat".

In Case of Fire

In Case Of Fire - write down that name, you're going to want to remember it - prove themselves one of the best new bands in Britain. Watching In Case Of Fire, you get a similar feeling to watching Muse back in 1999, where despite the lowly venues it's obvious that there's a special talent at play, ready to catapult them to the top of their game. It’s hard to recall a more savage, unerringly brutal debut than this offering from In Case Of Fire.
