Marketing Highlights

Rock and Roll doesn't need saving; the cure's right here." That's what David Fricke, the legendary Rolling Stone journalist said of The Len Price 3, an English pop band who deliver instantly memorable tunes and an unstoppable whirlwind of power. With an ever growing and ferociously loyal world-wide following, twelve years and five albums under their belts, they remain the best kept secret in show business. Their new release, ‘Kentish Longtails’ namechecks a piece of local folklore concerning a curse allegedly placed upon the people of Strood by Thomas à Becket which condemned the children of this town on the banks of the Medway to be born with tails. Thankfully tail-less, but with tall tales and colourful harmonies intact, the Len Price 3 deliver catchy vintage pop tunes with plenty of punk rock oomph and a sprinkling of sonic weirdness. Expect melodic nuggets, shiny pop hooks and rich lyrical content laden with wry social observations and acid tongued retorts. Glenn said, “With this album we took a slightly different approach. I wrote a number of songs whilst on holiday and I also chose to pretend I was writing for a different band on several tracks, which was a liberating experience. We recorded most of the tracks ourselves too in Steve's garage & Neil's shed. It was like three lads messing around with a tape recorder in their first band, so very relaxed and with a looser vibe. We're really pleased with the songs and the way the album has turned out”. Check out the new album on the link below and find out for yourself why Vive Le Rock called them “A true national treasure indeed."

Bio

“Rock and Roll doesn’t need saving, the cure’s right here.” David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Ladies and Gentlemen…the return of The Len Price 3…

Hailing from Kent’s Medway Delta; that fabled corner of the Garden of England that spawned such cult acts as The Buff Medways, The Milkshakes and The Prisoners, the raw unfettered garage pop of The Len Price 3 could yet eclipse them all.

Tightly wound and stripped to the bone – from the adrenalin surge of Chinese Burn, their 2005 debut, its incredible 2007 follow-up Rentacrowd, and now the tour de force that is Pictures, The Len Price 3 have consistently delivered an abundance of three-minute thrills, overflowing with frenetic energy and indelible hooks. By turns gritty and punchy, their delivery is sweetened by impossible to forget melodies, Beatlesque harmonies and the innovative spirit of The Who, The Creation, and The Kinks at their peak.

On Pictures, the Len Price 3 further develop their mastery of melody and harmony, combining the crackling electricity of their live shows with more ambitious arrangements, instrumentation and deceptively mature songwriting.

Wicked Cool Chairman, Stevie Van Zandt calls Pictures “the band’s best album yet, and that’s saying a lot. The title track demonstrates why people compare the band favorably to the early Who.”

In true Len Price 3 style, Glenn Page (vocals, guitar), Neil Fromow (drums, backing vocals) and Steve Huggins (bass), again recorded on analogue to capture the vintage, earthy sound that only tape can provide. Pictures is produced by The Len Price 3, Jim Riley, Graham Day, and Kris Harris with insight from Wicked Cool Records founder Stevie Van Zandt.

Pictures is an unforgettable set of quick-fire musical snapshots, about people the band have encountered, filled with observations, light and dark, of the world today.

Pictures will be released on CD and vinyl LP – in the Wicked Cool tradition, the vinyl album will also include a bonus CD with three ADDITIONAL tracks not available ANYWHERE else (sixteen tracks in total), offering a fantastic bonus for vinyl aficionados and record collectors alike.
