Two years in the making, BigMotorGasoline delivers some high energy rock that will get heads boppin’, feet stompin’ and putting smiles on those rock music aficionados that have been waiting for something new, fresh, and long overdue on the Canadian music landscape.
Never mind that candy coated music that keeps recycling on the radio waves, when the music you want to hear in your car, at the cottage, or riding your Harley is right here, right now! Out of Ontario/Canada, BigMotorGasoline is a working man’s rock and roll band. . BMG has “Fuel to Burn” that will have you immediately thinking of all those great classic rock bands from years past, and have you reconnecting your rock roots with a sound similar to Monster Truck and those classic rock bands that dominated radio before.
The debut CD, “Fuel to Burn” was released in June/2016, and delivered to radio across Canada and the Internet in mid-July. In early August 1/2016 “Vodka”was the number seven single on internet radio charts compiled from shows out of Australia, the United Kingdom, Iowa, California, South Carolina, Georgia and Hamilton,Ontario. “Vodka” is currently played or has been played at terrestrial stations at Rock 107 Trenton, KROCK – Kingston, Beyond Mainstream – K106/Sarnia, CKOL – Campbellford, CJIM.CA – Montreal with several more stations quickly developing their own taste for our single shot. Watch for our upcoming review and interview in issue 78 of “Fireworks” magazine coming from the U.K.! Currently, bigmotorgasoline is in rotation or being played on over 60 internet stations or networks, and indie music shows around the world.
What the music world are saying about BigMotorGasoline
The Spill (club), Peterborough – “Love them. Super pro…super sound”
The Wolf 101.5 Peterborough – “Good effort ….they got a good straight ahead rock sound…”
Code Zero Radio describes BMG as “honest rock desperately needed on the airwaves.”
Q108 Kingston says “the music of bigmotorgasoline has an almost southern rock flavour, the energy and licks take me back to the 80’s and 90’s rock, will be added immediately to heavy rotation.”
The Drive – Kingston: “You guys have a great classic rock influenced sound and you’re clearly ready for big things”
Kaotic Music Reviews: “instantly heard a comparison to fellow Canadian rockers Monster Truck as well as Texas rocker Tyler Bryant . The guitar driven rock with a touch of country is evident in such tracks as ‘BYOT’, ‘Lately’ and ‘Put It On Me’. They are great rock and roll songs… could see these tunes getting air play alongside Glorious Sons, One Bad Son, The Black Crowes and many others”
365 Radio Network (10 Indie Stations/more than 200,000 listeners):“Every song is a party in your pants! Blood, sweat, cursing booze and sex! The tunes are well crafted and have hooks for days”
