The Ace come with a substantial musical pedigree, having grown from various Leeds and South Yorkshire bands of the last few years, most notably "The Mighty" Uptight, Freebooting Profiteers and The Lost 45's. The current line up boasts "Dynamite Daz Lee" Parkinson on drums, Nige "B-Side" Spencer on bass and Jonny "Magus" Wilson on guitar. The band cite their influences as "Bubblegum R'n'B Garage Fizzing Pop from The Searchers to The Standells to The Stairs".
Their tunes certainly live up to the description. They have an album out right now entitled "Next Time Around" which showcases their influences of classic garage, freakbeat and straight ahead pop-tinged rock and roll. You can find out more about the album, along with their three track ep, at their blog We Dig The Ace. Their Facebook page gives additional information. And you can hear a selection of their tunes at Reverbnation and Soundcloud.
The great news is that The Ace have signed to our favourite brand new record label Plastic Pop and will be releasing a new set of tunes shortly.
For now, this is one of my favourite tunes from The Ace. It is called Go Go Girl and it rocks.
