English:

British rock was once the leader of the pack and this band reminds us of these great pioneering days of the late sixties and early seventies where all kinds of bands were experimenting with new sounds and rock styles. The Thinking Men could well be a great undiscovered vintage band with one obscure masterpiece that never found its way to the public ... But this is 2016 and all chances are open for this five piece band that records with modern technology and composes songs that continue the great tradition of adventurous British rock. They listened to the great bands of yesterday, but also to the important artists of today like Jack White. So far this band has been deprived from a proper record deal, but that should soon change! After a couple of self released ep’s and this very convincing new one, they should be picked up by a good label that believes in this great band. This ep (download only) holds four great inventive and inspired songs that will appeal immediately to fans of the great rock of the 20th century. They mix heavy, progressive, blues and art rock in a very imaginative way. Let The Thinking Men rule!


Nederlands:

Ooit was Groot Brittannië het centrum van alles wat vernieuwend was in de rockmuziek. Deze The Thinking Men herinnert ons op een verrassend aangename manier aan die hoogdagen. Deze plaat zou net zo goed een onontdekt pareltje kunnen zijn uit de late jaren zestig of zeventig, ware het niet van de hedendaagse opnametechnieken. Toch pikt deze vijfkoppige band perfect aan bij de grote Engelse traditie. Ze hebben zeker de grote bands uit het verleden goed beluisterd, maar net zo goed de belangrijke namen van vandaag zoals een Jack White. Het is moeilijk te vatten dat deze band nog geen label heeft, maar dat zou met deze ep toch overtuigend moeten lukken. Het schijfje (voor het publiek enkel te koop via download) laat ons vier sterke nummers horen die ongetwijfeld de fan van de rock van de 20e eeuw moeiteloos zullen overtuigen. Ze mengen op een originele manier zowel heavy-, progressieve-, blues- en art rock. Laat The Thinking Men maar komen!
