Biography

It’s better to fail aiming high, than to succeed aiming low. We of Slam Cartel have set our sights very high, So high in fact that failure, Will have in it an echo of glory.

“They got melodies the size of Texas, hooks that could catch a Great White…
and an album that needs to be played really fucking loud while driving up the coast in a convertible sports car. Slam Cartel will be a force to be reckoned with.”
Billy Morrison (Billy Idol, The Cult, Camp Freddy, Stimulator)

Praise indeed. But, for London based hard rock band Slam Cartel, it’s not just about the music. Obviously they too are in thrall to the power of their own songs - and the fact they can count Billy Morrison and Russell Brand as fans is a bonus - but what really sets them apart is the pride and delight they take in delivering their killer combination of cuts, hooks and jabs to the solar plexus. Like the aural equivalent of a Peter Howson painting, taut sinewy and striking tattoos, Slam Cartel are not to be argued with.

Giles Van Lane (vocals), Marc Neudeck (bass), Tommy Hendriksen (guitar), Steve Campkin (drums), Adam Lee (keyboards, guitars) and principal songwriter, Terence Warville (guitar), have been together three years. United in their dedication to breathe new life into the cause of hard rock, their very first gig was played in a bikers bar and subsequent shows have included auspicious dates at the 100 Club, Scala and rock fest, Sonisphere 2010/11, where they have recruited a battalion of loyal followers.
