band – Val Cale – Black Stuff EP


Band Val Cale,  Leeds based 4-piece Blues Rock, capable of reducing the listener’s mind to the creamy texture of a head of stout. 

 Our band mixes classic sounds of the sixties British blues scene with tinges of seventies Floydian psychedelia and Sabbath-esque heaviness. We won’t disappoint those with an ear for either a classic or contemporary rock sound.
