Sour Mash FREE
Sour Mash formed in late 2005 by founding members Adam Newbery and Dave Payne. The intention, to play music by the bands that they loved such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Motorhead to name just a few. It wasn't long before the duo started writing their own songs and recruited bassist (and Adam's brother) Ben to supply the low end. The line up was completed by drummer Shane Kiely. This quartet managed to write a number of songs which were recorded at home and used to get gigs. Over a few years Sour Mash gigged and wrote and managed to create the sound they were looking for. Sour Mash played at many venues in Birmingham and Coventry including The Actress and Bishop, The Flapper and Firkin, The Bar Academy and the The Golden Cross. The live performances were met with positive responses from audience members and other bands.
