The Dole Age
Ok! So I’ve gone on about these guys for a very long time, so, without further ado I give you THE DOLE AGE…
The Dole Age are a 4 piece alternative outfit from Merthyr Tydfil in the south Wales valley’s, who mix pop-rock with a mouth-wateringly large amount of Ska, producing an unmistakable ‘Dole Age’ sound with lyrics that draw you in and a sound not unreminiscent of Madness.
The Dole Age consists of:
Steven Peters (vocals), Richard Harrison ( (rhythm guitar), Blaine Madgwick (bass) and Dorian Griffiths (drums). The Dole Age’s talented musicianship and ‘crafty’ yet clever lyrics combine to deliver great tracks that will have you humming and whistling all day. So, if you don’t like the ‘earworm’ wriggling towards your brain, turn the sound down now…
The Dole Age was one of the bands I was particularly looking forward to seeing at a music festival in Leicester, November last year, but, unfortunately, the promoter decided not to have bands from out of the area… definitely our loss!
I am a very big fan of The Dole Age. I love their sound, I love their lyrics and I love Steve Peters’ vocals and I truly hope that someone will pick-up on their talent and expose The Dole Age to a much wider public, they deserve no less!
I wish The Dole Age well and hope their current challenges are short lived and are back upto strength as soon apossible.
