WEST COAST MUSIC CLUB are a trio of musicians based in West Kirby, England. The band comprises of Martin Adams, Peter Madden and Marc Joy.
The origins of West Coast Music Club are based in Martin and Peter lending each other records in school in 1976 (Mott the Hoople – All the Young Dudes, Creedance Clearwater Revival – Green River). Martin bought a guitar when he was 20, learned three chords and wrote his first songs. This led to an off and on musical collaboration between Martin and Peter since the 1980s. Marc has worked with the band for the last three years and produced 'Take A Deep Breath’, the success of this creative partnership has developed further and he now plays in the band.
A short 6 months after the release of ‘Take A Deep Breath’ comes ‘Faded Scrapbook’, the 4th album from West Coast Music Club. Available via 72rpm Records and through all the usual digital platforms, as well as a limited number of CDs, via the WCMC and 72rpm Bandcamp sites and Kool Kat Musik in the USA and Canada. Written by Martin Adams the album is performed by Martin Adams, Peter Madden and Marc Joy.
West Coast Music Club have released a steady stream of singles and albums that have met with critical acclaim. This is what the critics have had to say regarding ‘Take A Deep Breath’:
‘Anyone who has followed this act over the course of the last three and a half years since their inception, will know that they can be relied upon to be the finest purveyors of all manner of quality guitar-pop. Here It Comes Again single, in my humble (but obviously very correct!) opinion is undoubtedly their best track yet, taking fluttering The Byrds jangled riffs and coursing the vocal sweetness of the Kevin Robertson / Andrew Taylor vibe through it…’
‘ ..revel in the art of releasing jangle-pop infused music, that nods it’s obvious appreciation to all manner of acts from the 60s all the way through to the 90s’
‘..takes the ‘throw everything at the melodies and riff’ approach of the recent Kevin Robertson aesthetic and courses it through the slightest wafts of Americana. It is WCMC at their most stunning’
‘...flitting effortlessly between The Posies power and Teenage Fanclub subtlety, as Martin Adams finds the genre that his vocal texture was simply made for’
‘…From the first guitar notes it radiates ‘classic’. Take a Deep Breath is truth in advertising, a truly breathtaking affair...’
