“If its riffs you’re after, The Amazons have them in spades. Great big spades. More like shovels, really. Or a digger. An entire digger full of riffs. Rising from Reading, the four-piece have been on an upwards trajectory for the last two years, gigging relentlessly around the UK in a tour van they call “Big Suze”. “We’ve taken her everywhere,” says flame-haired singer and guitarist Matt Thomson. “There’s been a lot of throwing up in it. A lot of drunken nights. “We’ve even shut our guitarist’s hand in the door. He had to play the next show with two fingers.” But the decrepit Ford Transit van met a grisly end earlier this year, when the band set it on fire for the cover of their debut album. “We thought, who are we and what do we do?” says Thomson. “We wanted to shoot the cover in Reading – to put our flag in the ground and say, ‘We’re a Reading band and we’re not ashamed of it’. “After that, it was just coming up with the wackiest thing we could think of, and that was setting the van on fire.” – BBC
