Snapes Prepared for a Crack at the Country Airwaves

Snapes Prepared for a Crack at the Country Airwaves

Who: Snape Bros
Where: Beaumont Exchange Hotel
Author: Anthony Scully
When: Thursday February 15, 2001

THE debut CD from Newcastle trio THE SNAPE BROS contains a dedication on the inside cover to 'loved ones who, along with us, never imagined this album would happen'.

Fortunately MICK, RUSSELL and CHRIS SNAPE have persevered.

Maitland's Snape Bros have produced an impressive album NIGHTWORKER which does justice to the group's live performance, itself a mighty sound to behold.

CDs are available for sale from gigs tomorrow night at the Beaumont Exchange Hotel, Friday night at Club Phoenix and Saturday night at Wests Leagues.

Until now the trio has concentrated on delivering more perfect renditions of rock, country rock and middle-of-the-road cover versions from the 1970s and 1980s.

On this CD, recorded in Kurri Kurri with renowned country engineer and producer BILL AITKEN, the Snape Bros prove they may have what it takes to crack the country airwaves.

Most of the songs are by Mick Snape ranging from slower ballads with slide guitar and piano to trademark Snape harmonies on A LOT ON HER HEART to upbeat rockers such as WANTIN' HIM TONIGHT. The title track NIGHTWORKER sounds like it was mixed with radio in mind, and has shades of THE DINGOES anthem WAY OUT WEST with its tale of working class woe.
