Stealing the Show
One For The Road was formed in 1995 by singer/songwriter Theresa Rhodes and guitarist/arranger Kiet Nguyen. Theresa's childhood in India, Africa and Europe merged with Kiet's oriental background produce a unique blend of influences which are reflected in the band's intriguingly eclectic sound. "Stealing the show" is the aptest of titles for this groundbreaking album in which One for the Road expand the bourbon-stained influences that marked their debut via an atmospheric crawl of exotic tavernas and Eastern bordellos. Set in a mysterious, apocalyptic twilight zone - inhabited by curious lounge lizards, vampires and night stalkers - the honeyed, fallen angel voice of Theresa Rhodes nevertheless ensures that the sweet embers of love shine resolutely through the killing fields so stunningly evoked by the cataclysmic soundscapes and samurai guitar of Kiet Nguyen. "Someone may be screaming" but "the walls are still moving" to the sounds of One for the Road at the peak of their powers. BGM.
