At the tail end of lat year we identified that we were going to work on a wee them - Reading Festival was becoming a strand running through the two days line up. We approached a number of acts who had appeared in that rich period of the late seventies and early eighties and some just didn't come to fruition. Others however did and we are delighted to confirm that following the release of their first new music since 1987 we will have Rock Goddess live at WinterStorm on Saturday 25th November.
'It's More Than Rock And Roll' is the first Rock Goddess release since 1987s third album 'Young And Free'. Jody Turner wrote all the songs on the EP and also produced them, with Wes Maebe mixing and mastering the record.
Wes has previously worked with a fine array of talents, including Roger Waters, Sir Tim Rice, The Buzzcocks and Beverley Knight and his talents are perfectly suited to that of the reborn and reinvigorated Rock Goddess, Jody Turner on vocals and guitar, Julie Turner on drums and Tracey Lamb on bass.
Originally formed by sisters Jody and Julie Turner at the tender age of 13 and nine, respectively, even in such infancy Jody proved a good guitarist and Julie showed considerable promise as a drummer. Their father ran a music shop in Wandsworth, London, which had a rehearsal room next to it. The sisters, along with school friend and budding bass player Tracey Lamb, soon started to put a set together.
By 1981 they had recorded their first demo tape and began to play clubs in London, earning a reputation as schoolgirl rockers who could hold their own against more established outfits.
Jody was delighted that hurdles had been overcome,
"It's been a long time coming, but we got there. We are so proud of this, and of each other. We hope people enjoy it as much as we want them to."
It's also been a long tome coming for Rock Goddess to retun to Scotland and we are delighted that they have chosen the WinterStorm stage in Troon for this special appearance.
