People will often give a bunch of kids that play wholly derivative genre music a free ride if they play said genre music well. And this applies wholly to The Vintage Caravan.
Now the thing is, their self titled album sounds really good. The production gives their music an edge and attack that you really don’t get with other bands, say Deep Jimi and the Zep Creams. The guitars squall, the drums clatter and the bass punches.
But the actual music they play, which is heavy blues rock, has already been played to death a million times before, in a million different iterations over many, many decades. But as I said, they play this schlock really well so most people won’t care. Perfect for those dads who complain that you don’t hear any ‘real music’ nowadays.
