Lets All Sing Along To The Rambler
LyricsWell she woke up this morningDevilment in mindStanding in her neglegee With evil in her eyesWell I tried so hard to tell herShe screamed the whole place downI jumped out the window and I walked in out of townThat’s why they call me the rambler That’s why they call me the ramblerThat’s why they call me the rambler and IMove from town to townI went to the gypsyTo get my fortune toldTold her ’bout the woman that’s tryingTo steal my jelly rollWell I tried so hard to changeTil I broke my while self downI strapped on my bootsAnd I walked on out of townChorusI might just get to walkingMay hop on the trainPlaces that I rest my headAin’t never the sameThat’s why they call me the ramblerThat’s why they call me the rambler That’s why they call me the rambler and IMove from town to townI got me a womanI’m every single townDoors are always openEvery time I come aroundChorusWell they call me the ramblerI got rambling on my mindYes they call me the ramblerI got rambling on my mindWell I’m the midnight rambler I gotRambling on my mind.
Who are The Terraplanes ?
Highway 61 – The Terraplanes Blues Band
T H E B R A N D N E W S I N G L E
Release date 29th January 2022
“The Terraplanes are an extraordinary blues band!”
– Blues Matters Magazine
Hailing from Bristol UK, The Terraplanes Blues Band have established themselves as a force on the UK blues scene. Following their first show in London (Gaz Mayall’s Rockin’ Blues Club, Soho) and appearance at The Radford Mill Festival Of Rhythm & Blues, the band headed to the studio this summer to record their first full album. 12 original tracks full of swagger and style, reminiscent of the British R’n’B boom of the 1960’s.
The first single to come from the album is Highway 61, a perfect follow on from the authentic sound of their breakthrough E.P Midnight Train. Highway 61 is a heavy blues number with a raw, gritty vocal performance by frontman Nick Scrase alongside his solid guitar line that carries the song, accompanied ably by the rhythm section of Andrew Wood (bass) and Tom Turner (drums). The efforvescent Eduardo Allen complimenting the groove with masterful strains on the blues harmonica brings it all together in this song about ecsaping your surroundings. The sound of The Terraplanes is so fresh but also so reminiscent of the old blues bands, it’s easy to see why they are one of the most exciting blues bands around.
Formed in 2013 as a duo, Nick and Eduardo expanded the band to a 4 piece in 2014. The chemistry between the two founding members is the driving force of the band and their reputation as a formidable live act continues to grow. Under the wing of MAS records, a scheme with patrons like Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, the band gained mentorship and guidance in helping them achieve their goals. The Terraplanes have been on the rise ever since.
2021 began with the release of their fifth single Catfish, the final single to come from the critically acclaimed debut E.P Midnight Train which was the tenth most played album in 2020 on the UK Independent Blues Broadcasters Association (IBBA) chart.
All five singles have been featured on BBC upload shows.
”A brilliant band full of energy and hard hitting traditional blues vibes..I love It!”
– Adam Crowther, BBC Upload
Full page interviews in prestigious blues publications as “Blues In Britain” and “Blues Matters” magazines have now cemented the bands position at the forefront of the UK blues scene.
With regular live shows happening again, this foursome are hoping to tour the album around the country and hit the blues festival circuit in 2022.
Singer Nick Scrase – “We’re so proud of what we’ve achieved so far and really excited about our plans for the future”
