New album The Kid Got Electric is due for release summer 2021
The Jesus Bolt are Hazel Winter and Gerard Starkie.
Hazel Winter, described by Q Magazine as “The West Country’s first lady of noir-ish guitar blues” and Louder Than War, as, “…a low-fi genius being intermittently possessed by the spirits of Victoria Wood and Ian Dury “, played guitar for The Blue Aeroplanes in the early 90s and has since released a string of albums, produced numerous videos and published her first book of poetry , “I’m scared of the pig on The City Farm” in Dec 2018.
When Gerard Starkie’s band Witness released the first of 2 albums on Island records in 1999 , The Times described his vocals as; ” imbued with that nebulous quality of soul, fragile, sensitive and exuding a dignified stoicism doubtless borne of experience. ”
Starkie went on to release a solo album as well as recording 2 albums and touring extensively with The Blue Aeroplanes.
Together as The Jesus Bolt, they have released 2 EP’s ; Error and Industry and That Unwanted Present and have completed work on their debut album due for release summer 2021
