The Thirst are an electrifying indie/rock band from Brixton who are emerging as one of the premiere live acts in the UK.
Consisting of brothers Mensah (lead guitar) and Kwame (bass), alongside school friends Mark (rhythm guitarist) and Marcus (drummer), The Thirst blend together a vibrant sound and offer a refreshing and uplifting alternative to present youth culture. Inspired and influenced by old punk records, Hendrix, drum n’ bass and hip-hop, the result is uniquely their own.
From the first band rehearsals at Mensah and Kwame’s house to playing at local venues, The Thirst built up their strong fan-base the traditional way, gigging across London up to six times a week. Word soon spread of their talent and it wasn’t long before Ronnie Wood heard of The Thirst making waves in London.
The Rolling Stone immediately sent his talent scouts down to one of their gigs. The Thirst blew the crowd away and as soon as Ronnie returned from tour, he along with his family went to see the band at their gig at The Half Moon in Putney. The Thirst were signed on the spot, making them the first band to be signed to Wooden Records.
“I am passionate about music, it’s been my career now for 4 decades. These guys clearly belong on stage, they have a serious sound, raw talent and don’t disregard the power of lyrics like so many bands do these days. I am really looking forward to working with them”(Ronnie Wood)
