The Draytones

The Draytones are Gabriel Boccazzi (guitar & vocals), Luke Richardson (drums & vocals) and Chris Le Good (bass & vocals).

On a bleak winter's eve in January 2006, 3 lads stand gazing at 60's legend Joe Meek's former North London home. They smile knowingly, shake hands and all agree to henceforth be The Draytones, an Anglo-Argentine psychbeat collective commited to reactivating a sound long lost and feared forgotten.

Gabriel and Luke were brought together in London N7, via Buenas Aires and Grimsby. Fed up with everything on the radio and a life on the breadline, they found Eel Pie Islander Chris and set off to play songs the likes of which had not been heard since the rug-cutting glory days of Syd Barrett, Los Gatos Salvajes, The Kinks, Thee Milkshakes and many more. With a simple drums, bass and guitar setup they wish to play to anyone who will lend an ear, that they too may vibrate in the mind of the one true God whose name is love; grooving as one to the music of yore.

They played their 1st gig in March with The Hoosiers, followed by supports slots with The Strawbs, The Downliners Sect and The View - at which point they were transported back to 1965 - just like they had allways dreamed!

In 2007, the Draytones released a 6 songs EP, Forever On, for 1965 Records. Highly Recommended!

This is the first band in a while that I like from you blog. Which is not a bad thing, it's a compliment :D Thank you for the post about the band. You do have a bit too much 'highly recommended' bands though. Either music is becoming really good these days or you are accepting a little bit too much...

:) Just compliments :D
