Bio:

Band founded in 2016.From three-plus decades as Motörhead’s axeman to being voted number 20 in the pole of top 100 Welsh Heroes (comfortably beating JPR Williams, Roald Dahl and Sir Anthony Hopkins) to covering a Norweigian promoter in squirty cheese, Pontypridd-born Campbell continues to live life to the fullest with guitar in hand and humour intact.Growing up admiring the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi and Jimmy Page, Campbell was playing professionally at the age of 13 with cabaret band Contrast on the Welsh club circuit. He bought his first Les Paul in 1973, and only 5 years later (in 1978!) he formed popular heavy metal indie band Persian Risk. Spending several years gigging with Risk, in February 1984 Campbell auditioned for the vacant guitar slot in popular beat group Motörhead. He ended up sharing guitar duties with fellow auditionee (and partner-in-cheap-laughs) Michael Würzel Burston.In a 32 year Motörcareer which spanned three drummers, the departure of Würzel and the appearance of a horse onstage, Campbell was a major creative force and identity for the legendary rockers, selling millions of albums, filling dozens of passports and finding fun and games wherever he went. With 16 studio albums under his belt, Campbell has co-written some of Motörhead’s most-loved songs, including “Orgasmatron”, “Going To Brazil” and “Rock Out”. In fact, since joining the band, Campbell has co-written 90% of Motörhead’s studio output. He has also enjoyed various accolades, including 4 Grammy nominations and one Grammy win (in 2005), two Golden God awards from Metal Hammer magazine, a Kerrang! award, an official proclamation from the City of Los Angeles in August 2015, and a grand total of 16 speeding fines. Bear in mind that Phil is also El Presedente of the Campbell Comedy Corporation.Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons, featuring Campbell alongside his three sons Todd (guitar), Dane (drums), Tyla (bass) and complemented by vocalist Neil Starr have stepped up their touring activities in 2016 and performed a blinder at Europe’s oldest, most prestigious metal festival, Wacken on August 3rd. Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons have just completed work on a self titled EP, which will be released in November 2016 by UDR Records.

Album:

Much like James Bond and Doctor Who, there’s a line-up of Motörhead which was your Motörhead. For me, it was Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell (and a grizzled, mutton-chopped man in black). Having properly gotten into Motörhead during their purple patch with Cameron Webb at the mixing desk, The Wörld is Yours was my Ace of Spades. Phil Campbell has featured on some of my favourite Motörhead songs and had he packed his gear up and not given the world another song, it would have been a loss for music.Thankfully, Campbell has rounded up his sons (Todd, Dane and Tyla – guitar, drums and bass, respectively) and Neil Starr (vocals) to continue the hard rock goodness with The Age of Absurdity. It’s not some ham-fisted attempt to continue Motörhead’s legacy nor is it a complete departure. Instead, it’s Campbell having fun and doing what he does best as well as flexing his muscles. There’s variation to the music but at the heart of it all, it’s still unmistakably Phil Campbell.Hard, dirty riffs are rightly front and centre which squeal and crunch in only the way Phil Campbell can deliver them and make their presence right from the start with “Ringleader”. With a second guitar in the mix, Campbell Sr trades licks with Todd who proves he can keep up with dad. It’s clear he’s been an influence on him musically as he provides his own chunky riffs to wrap around them. Meanwhile, Tyla’s bass lines are so heavy, they come dangerously close to climbing out of the speakers and bashing your head in.Following it up is “Freak Show” to make an excellent one-two punch of an opener and proves Campbell and his Bastard Sons aren’t messing around. With its chunky bluesy opening riff, it’s not dissimilar to AC/DC’s “Girls Got Rhythm”, and while it does sound like the Highway to Hell number on steroids, you can still picture a denim-clad Kirriemuir man belting this out as he gargles gravel. “Skin and Bones” goes in the complete opposite direction and with its chugging riff and Dane’s bombastic drums, sounds like something you’d hear from a band inspired by today’s modern day titans like Alter Bridge, Shinedown, Black Stone Cherry, etc.Meanwhile, “Dark Days” doubles down on the blues vibe becoming far more sludgy and injecting it with a healthy dose of Southern sensibility to give a Clutch vibe. Actually, that’d be one hell of a tour, wouldn’t it? “Dropping the Needle” and “Step into the Fire” revert the album back to the normal service established with the opening two tracks and between the pair of them are probably the best representations of the band’s sound with their no-nonsense hard rock sound. “High Rule” acts as the title track as it puts politicians under the microscope with its hook of “Welcome to a new part of history – the age of absurdity” and while it may not be quite as poetic as Lemmy ever managed, you can imagine it prompting a wry grin from him.Featuring as a bonus song is “Silver Machine”. Yes, that one you’re thinking of – which is essentially where it all started for Lemmy. The Hawkwind classic (and ironically their most successful single) has been reworked to sound like it was a Motörhead song and even features Dave Brock lending his guitar and vocal talents to the track. Whilst it may not feature on this review copy, it was played on tour with Airbourne and became a completely new beast in this form and one of the highlights in a set full of great songs.I’ve been looking forward to this album for quite some time now and I promised I wouldn’t mention Motörhead and instead judge the album on its own merits. But it became glaringly obvious that would be impossible. This album manages to successfully stand on its own two feet and is good enough that I’d want to find more material from Phil Campbell if I was unaware of his past efforts. Miraculously, by trying not to be a re-hash of Motörhead and experimenting with styles, Campbell and his sons have not only managed to fill the void left behind but have also made something brand new. We may only be at Blue Monday and a wealth of great albums on the horizon but we may already have a contender for the best album of 2018.
