About Stompin' on Spiders
Formed out of necessity to honour a booking at a Blues festival in April 2009, Stompin' on Spiders have enjoyed international notoriety with their album "Follow My Thread" being featured and played by radio stations in the United Kingdom, Australia, USA, Canada, Japan and the Canary Islands!
Stompin' on Spiders is a musical collective based around core members, Noor Ali and Gazza Tee. The band's stripped-back acoustic Blues/Rock style is individual as it is unique, blending the traditional ethos of Blues music with a very modern edge. The "new tradition" is how one music journalist described the live and recorded offerings from Stompin' on Spiders; "a radical mix of stripped-back blues and roots inspired by international world events". Indeed, since those words were penned, the "new tradition" inspired by Stompin' on Spiders has been embraced by the Blues traditionalists and a growing army of "spider stompers" around the globe now that "Follow My Thread" has become widely accessible to all via internet download agencies.
