"Very nice track beautifully
– Peachy Jane at The Winchester 10th April 2010 by Marylyn
Firstly...think the Winchester is a brill venue...and
suited the band...the crowd seemed to be enjoying themselves and
the music... Think on hindsight an encore from Peachy would have
been good...they were going great guns then stopped suddenly!
I could have done with a couple more numbers from them at least!
More confidence here! The content was brill a good eclectic mix...would
have liked to see more people get up and dance...including me!

based unisex rock band PEACHY JANE graced us with their presence
on the live stage. I always like a hard rock band with female
vocalists, as it introduces a new element to hard rock. Although
ultimately a hard rock band, Peachy Jane's sound also includes
slight reggae undertones, immediately and sub-consciously putting
the audience at ease and making them feel laid back and ready
to enjoy the music."
"As usual Solid
Air are on the ball with their Fem Vox event on Monday the 16th. Check
out Peachy Jane featuring Rebecca Fludgate on rhythm guitar and sister
Vicky on vocals. Saw this band at a really enjoyable gig recently at
The Tripp Late. Strong original material encompassing a variety of styles.
Graham Brown on drums and Simon Kang on bass provide the backline, while
lead guitar is provided by Daniel Kietzmann. With Jenny Venus + Louise
Brown on the same bill, this will be another classic Solid Air event."

Love Life...review Stu Johnson (Weymouth)
is one of their best yet. The brief intro (would have sounded
even better if it had gone for another couple of bars) sets the
whole rhythm and tone of the song. An acoustic guitar rhythm sound
overlayed with a neat electric guitar riff complements Vickys'
vocals perfectly for the first verse. The rhythm of the acoustic
then cleverly builds the bridge, ready for the chorus...
I'd sure like
to know what's going on in Becas' head at this point, because
the sound of her guitar becomes more apparent, and combined with
what she's actually playing here, it might be described as almost
'menacing'...? that can't be right, can it...? or is it more 'mixed
or frustrated emotions'...?
then comes in nicely, breaking the tension that has been built
This is really nice as Vicky pours her heart out, over Vicky’s
harmonies in the background. Vickys' voice is very different to
many singers. She doesn't 'go with the crowd'... her voice is
quite unique. At times there's a sort of emotional vunerability
to her voice/singing which i really like. On a purely personal
note, I would like to hear just a little more echo/reverb on her
voice, or perhaps some double/triple tracking to emphasis this
to the song... Breaking the usual 'song format', there is then
a small bridge that brings the song into the next verse.
This is another aspect where Peachy Jane differ from a lot of
bands, Beca expresses her feelings, and gives the song a great
'feel' through her guitar playing in a way that is a bit different
to many guitarists. You can't simply classify her as a rhythm
player, oh no...her playing is very much the 'heart' of the song,
very emotive, in an almost naive sort of way. (and I hope she'll
forgive me for saying that, it is meant as a compliment), because
her expressive style is original and certainly leaves its' mark.
The next verse
goes along nicely with some neat vocal (tricks)/phrases, and then
there's that bridge again...this time even stronger than before,
with the edition of a synth? playing some low end notes. Brooding
and pondering..?, (sorry Becs..) it hangs onto that last chord
as long as it can, almost to breaking point, and then the chorus
kicks in, trying to burst the banks of...? frustration...sadness...
anger and hurt...? expressing some of the emotional turmoil that
is, the 'human condition'...
verse ends with an observation...? no... a hard fact, of how precious
life is, and how vunerable, we as people, can be....
This is a
great song by Beca and Vicky, it's not 'slushy' or pretentious,
but tells things as they are.

So refreshing to hear really talented original music. Congrats to you

FM BREAKTHOUGH ARTIST OF THE MONTH GIG REVIEW BY ALAN DOREY
Jane brought their brand of rock - an amalgam of perhaps Jefferson
Airplane, Fleetwood Mac and any number of guitar-driven outfits
- to life in the second half and despite some of lead-singer Vicky's
vocals being lost in the guitar-mix, it was clear they wanted
to put on a good show. Kicking off with one of their best numbers,
Dragon Dreams, the rhythm section showed themselves to be a tight
unit - and lyricist Beca's strident guitar soared across the driving
beat. A couple of new songs were dropped into the set - sadly
whilst the structure and interest was there, more practice was
needed - but that will come. Bizarrely, a distinctly average cover
of Fleetwood Mac's Rhiannon cropped up, but the situation was
soon remedied with storming versions of Harmony - and a song with
real soul, Soho. By now, Peachy Jane had gelled and earlier diversions
forgotten.They added an encore, an accomplished take on the Neil
Young number. Keep On Rocking In The Free World. Covers are a
difficult animal, but this one was tamed and provided an upbeat
end to a fine night out."

AT ACTIVE REVIEW BY TIM HEYWOOD www.hopefm.com
like music that takes me by my lapels and grabs my attention.
The EP Live At Active from Peachy Jane does just that. Dragon
Dreams is a great opener, shakes out a stupor and makes its mark.
The opening riffs of Harmony, bearing echoes as it does of The
Hour Glass and The Allman Brothers, takes you by storm and soon
has you tapping your foot along to the nostalgic vocals. Soho
opens with a wide and low dirty riff, whilst still having a feel
of swing to it. Heart totally contrasts the rest of the EP, with
guitar work wanting you to float away down a river somewhere.
The backbeat, almost reggae feel to I Know switches back and forth
with a raunchy and enjoyable chorus. Over all this EP entertains
and enlivens, with upbeat vocals and harmonious guitar works."
Radio Solent South Live Demo Panel Review of Drive Away the Dark
Sunday 2nd May 2010 hosted by Phil Jackson
- review of original mix
– worked in A&R, promotions, BMG, Island, NME weekend,
runs KL Press
– producer/manager of Mystique, worked with EMI, Sony
– One Little Indian, worked with Skunk Anansie, Depeche
Mode, writes reviews in The Source.
Coquette: “It was ok, it felt like quite a long
build up into the chorus, for that build up you kind of expect
a crescendo chorus and it mostly delivered on that. The rhythm
guitar bit seemed quite similar throughout but not necessarily
a bad thing. I noticed that they were influenced by heritage acts.
I imagine the Stevie Nicks swishy skirt thing going on, quite
nice, not bad, not bad at all.”
Bob James:" I thought the intro actually
was quite stunning, I think the first minute of song pretty much
had me hooked, I thought the vocal there was actually quite haunting,
for me when it got past the first minute and went up tempo that’s
when it lost it for the song. I don’t think it delivered
at that point, I think, I felt the song itself could have stayed
down tempo, whether any influences maybe thought for a single
it needed to be up tempo I think it could’ve stayed down
tempo making it much more atmospheric but the vocals very, very
good. I didn’t get it after the first minute. The first
minute I thought was brilliant."
Lloyd: "I agree with Bob about the beginning, I
prefer the beginning, quite intriguing I like the voice sort of
retro sort of voice and then as soon as the chorus kicks in I
was expecting it to go bigger. What sprung to mind was Snow Patrol
for me Chasing Cars, it was nice you know staccato, but I mean
the chorus needs to drive more, maybe a few more guitars in there
