Influenced by the music of Patti Smith, Bob Dylan and Tracy Chapman, she tackles stories not only about the beautiful aspect of love, but the darker side of it, as well as tackling topics that are often seen as taboo in today's society.

Amii Dawes Music is a singer/songwriter whose talents and artistic charm are starting to make ripples. Her skillful lyric and unique voice are the tools that make her audiences stop and listen.

CardiaC + Brutal Horizon + Hope Through Hostility

CardiaC have been training since 2000 in a style mixing rock’n’roll, hardcore, stoner and metal, with a Latin
groove provided by the Spanish lyrics. The Swiss quartet has built up its particular personality on stage and its force will go beyond frontiers.The international press has described the band as one of the most promising bands in extreme rock from central Europe.

Brutal Horizon- Hailing from the subterranea of the London metal scene, Brutal Horizon have produced a collection of metal anthems that are set to launch the five-piece to new heights. Taking influence from across the musical spectrum, the band fuses groove into heavy metal to produce a sound that is reminiscent of early Metallica, Opeth and Pantera. Brutal Horizon’s tight, aggressive rhythms and vitriolic lyrics, harnessed by sublime melodies, ensure that the songs resonate long after the last chord is struck. The horizon is drawing nearer; be part of the revolution and join the Brutal Crew.

HTH: Hope Through Hostility are a Hardcore/Metal/Punk band from London who are the sum of their influences – The city they live in and the music they listen to. They take cues from metal, hardcore, punk, rock and the blues and are all about writing songs about things they believe in

A Snake Rattle & Roll Christmas with The Snakeoil Rattlers + The Redlands Palomino Company + The Shangrilads
This year's annual Snake, Rattle, and Roll Christmas special is at the newly located 12 Bar Club on Holloway Road (203 Holloway Rd, London N7 8DL Tel: 020­ 7­619­ 9428 ) on Wednesday 16th December featuring headline sets from your own renegade Southern country rockin' Snakeoil Rattlers and the Alt-country of The Redlands Palomino Company. As support we have the pub rock punk of The Shangrilads. As many fans will know all three bands have an intertwined history so it's a Christmas family affair with double (even triple) duty from a few kinsmen. And as it's Christmas I'm sure a few will be up for a song or two to end the night.

The show to starts at 8:15pm with The Shangrilads, then The Redlands Palomino Company at 9pm followed by The Snakeoil Rattlers at 10pm. And it's only £6 admission on the door.


The first thing that strikes you about The Snakeoil Rattlers is not only their unique fusion of country, rock, bluegrass, and the outlaw sounds of the South, but also their uncompromising mature encapsulation of how these elements can be formed into a timeless rootsy core.

Unlike many London based bands performing what can be termed traditionally as an American music genre, The Snakeoil Rattlers play it with an authenticity that has brought them fans on both sides of the Atlantic from the small towns to the larger costal cities. Walking on the dark side of the street however, their sound, is distinctly their own.

Even after the release of their first EP "Road Tales" which spoke of the quiet desperation of the road, the band has earned it's reputation as a live act continuing past the songs of this sophomore effort touching on topics such as backwoods gambling ("The Devil's in My Rearview"), less than simple tales of revenge ("Lazarus"), inner family turmoil ("Blood's No Thicker Than Backwater") and unafraid to tackle the subjects of faith, religion, and the undeniable duality of the South ("Plastic Jesus" and "Dixieland").

"Quite possibly the greatest country, bluegrass and rock fusion the South never had"
— Paul Chamberlain, New Songs From The South, ARFM Radio

"Delight in the bourbon-swaggering Sexy, Southern Death Country-Rock of The Snakeoil Rattlers. Named after one of Steve Earle’s finest songs these good ol’ boys mix a perfect, three-finger whiskey blend of gifted musicianship with rock ’n’ Roll (bad) attitude."
— Countrier Than Thou

"Slow Train To Georgia and Nothin’ To Confess showed just what a tight unit the Rattlers are, and was that Made In The Shade, the ol’ Skynyrd classic? Hell, yeah. I will be checking this lot out again.”
— Classic Rock Magazine

twitter: @snakeoilrattler


Over the years, The Redlands Palomino Company have gained many devoted fans across the UK and beyond – thanks in part to their often-riotous live shows and enthusiastic support and radio play from BBC Radio 2’s Whisperin’ Bob Harris amongst others. They have made various high profile festival appearances and have toured extensively with a range of Americana artists including Richmond Fontaine, Peter Bruntnell, The Deadstring Brothers and Tift Merritt.

What the UK Press had to say:

"A great UK based Americana band, one of the best in my book. Their new album, Broken Carelessly is splendid"

“A new album release which has the potential to cement their reputation as one of the UK’s premier alt-country rock bands...a sound that could be lifted straight from the late 60’s/early 70’s pioneering west coast fusion of country and rock”

“A new album to match the live passion”

“5 Stars – well worth the wait…Broken Carelessly is their best album so far”

"4 stars - Third times a charm for UK Country Rockers"

"Her voice soars like an eagle over the Rockies, and British or not, there are moments on this record that more than rival the real deal"

"The Redlands Palomino Company have made a rugged and poignant contribution to the country canon with Don't Fade...for fans of Bruce Springsteen, Gillian Welch and Steve Earle"

"The UK's greatest country rock band"

"Americana, alt-country, whatever the term is this year for UK bands playing a certain kind of country rock, top of the pile are the Redlands Palomino Company."

"Shimmering like a summer afternoon after the wine has been opened, The Redlands Palomino Company deliver gloriously melodious country rock with that minor-key, bittersweet quality that tends to make for some of the most memorable music."

"Evokes memories of Gram and Emmylou"

"They're back and they're better than ever... the Redlands aren't just Britain's best country rock band but one of the very best anywhere...they really are at the height of their powers, there won't be a better country rock record released this year (anywhere)."

"It's country rock with tonnes of Gram and the Stones, 70's Linda Ronstadt, Jayhawks, Burritos..., it's sing along, get drunk, hug your mates music...s beautiful on record as they are live"

"I've waited a long time for a new Redlands album but it was worth it. After a couple of listens I'd say this is the best of their 3 long players to has everything you'd expect from a great country rock band and you can hear Gram, The Stones, Emmy Lou, maybe some Drive By Truckers and even a little of the Faces bar room swagger."

"Illustrious purveyors of beautifully crafted country rock"

"4 stars"

"4 stars"

"Undisputed champions of UK alt-country"

"4 stars - one tremendous song after the other, making this album an essential purchase for anyone with even a passing interest in 'country rock' or the edgier side of 'country'"
