This is the second shot fired by the Blacktop’s ‘in their current bid for world domination !
Now as you may know, most of the Tops Music is rooted in that Blues/Rock explosion vibe, that came to prominence in the 60’s during the ‘British Invasion’ of the USA and has grown in popularity ever since.
Predominantly originating out of the Mississippi delta, home to Jazz, Blues and Rock & Roll, this music was the making of so many famous artists including Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and so many more.
Gradual realisation of the seminal influences of this music, has led to many musicians sifting through this musical ‘BoneYard‘ of Artists and Songs. tracing its origins back to their roots.
The Blacktop’s are not alone in acknowledging this and indeed have a musical ‘BoneYard‘ of their own, containing lyrics, riffs and ideas yet to be realised.
So here’s a peek into their world, tread with caution !.
