Thursday 22nd FebruaryJohn E Vistic- King Ambulance Single Launch- Crofters Rights- Bristol
In collaboration with AMO Records and Hopcraft Brewery, The John E Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem are proud to release their new single 'KING AMBULANCE'. The track which was produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack/Marc Ford) and engineered by Scot Mckenzie is the first recording with the expanded Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem band. The single is a raucous stooge-esque call to arms inspired by George A Romero's famous zombie ambulance scene in 'Return of the Living Dead Part II'.
To mark the launch, Wales's premiere rock n roll brewers Hopcraft, have made a commemorative strong pale ale (5.9%Abv) called 'King Ambulance' which will be on sale at the gigs and released for general consumption at the same time. The awesome 'King Ambulance' Artwork for the single, t-shirts and beer is by the legendary Johnny Stingray of Urban Voodoo Machine fame. The brand new 'King Ambulance' video by Mike Sides (Russian Winter) premiers soon (more info to follow).
