Red Ram returns to rock the Slice


Edmonton stoner rock/ ’70s style shoegaze trio Red Ram returned to the Slice, July  24.  They entertained the audience of Red Ram introduced a good crowd to their new music.

Even through frontman Mark Feduk  broke a string on the first song, they kept the energy and intensity up while displaying a wide variety of sonic  excitement from funk to rockabilly to grunge.
 Feduk even dedicated a song ‘ I Don’t Believe in Luck’  to local singer songwriter Shaela Miller after telling the story about traveling down to L.A. with her to record several years ago.
I was hoping for a longer set from them. However a trimmed down trio of the New Weather Machine were up next. Featuring Jon Martin on guitar and vocals, Brad Brouwer on drums and Jesse Northey on bass, they played through a variety of Martin’s  David Bowie/Mott The Hoople/Pink Floyd  ’70s style originals before being called back for an encore of Bowie’s ‘Young Americans.’
