Whilst in Suffolk at the weekend, I picked up the latest edition of ‘Bounce’, which describes itself as East Anglia’s leading independent lifestyle magazine. The cover picture was of a group called The Amazons. According to the article about them, they “are tipped to be one of 2017’s biggest breakthrough rock acts”. They release an eponymous debut album later this month (you can hear some of it on their website) and have had a recent tour. When asked why they chose the name The Amazons, the reply was “There’s a book by Arthur Ransome called ‘Swallows and Amazons’; it was a movie set in the Lake District in the 1920s – it’s the most inoffensive, bordering on dull, super not rock n roll book.”

Good luck to them; I quite enjoyed the track I heard from their website. Their tour takes them around Europe and then to Japan and South Korea.When they are in Exeter I might send my son to hear them and gain his opinion - he is nearer their age! You may well know of them already, but if, like me, you didn’t, remember folks, you heard of them here first!

Oh yes, and unlike the ancient warrior race and the crew of ‘Amazon’ they’re all male.
