'The Faith & Patience'
(Cadiz Music)

The garden of Kent has never been known for producing successful quality rock bands, in fact I can't think of any.

There was a buzz many years ago in the Medway area with bands like The Prisoners and The Milkshakes who created a lot of interest but never got beyond cult status. Well yes, ok, once upon a time Dartford gave us Mick Jagger and Keith Richards plus David Bowie was a boy of Kent but this was when they were still in shorts playing conkers to get their kicks.

Ashford quartet Electric River are a band who have finally driven up the M20 to give their noisy neighbours in London and beyond a bloody nose with an album full of confident mature stylish anthems complete with solid rhythms and big hooks.

There are so many quality tunes on 'The Faith & Patience' that I could easily write about every track but there's far too many to mention. Just take my word for it and buy the bloody thing. You won't be disappointed.

Electric River have a refreshing widespread appeal that would please rock lovers of all genres. A band that sing with a positive message, there's elements of The Alarm, Big Country and even the big guns of Bruce Springsteen and dare I say it, early U2!

But fear not, Electric River are actually closer to The Clash than Bono and Co.

This is one of the best albums I've heard this year, if not the best. Put your faith and patience into Electric River because this garden will most certainly grow.

Mark Taylor recently spoke to vocalist and bassist Sponge before the band hit the stage as support to New York punk legends Dictators NYC at the Garage in London. Sponge talks about the history of Electric River and his influences and a whole lot more.
