Bell Tower is a vintage sounding power rock n’ soul trio from San Francisco featuring Simon Scott, guitar/vocals (The Golden Gods), Ed Cagnacci(Gary Floyd Band) bass/backing vocals, Steve Nutting (Treble Hum) drums/backing vocals.Ed, Simon and Steve met while playing in various punk and hard rock bands in the Bay Area.Bell Tower seem to have arrived straight from 1971 stylistically unsullied by the intervening years. Clearly,the triowere there taking notes when Humble Pie were Rockin’ the Fillmore, when The MC5 were recording their last criminally underrated album, and when Ike and Tina were hitting with a song about a New Orleans steamboat. Recorded directly to tape with minimal overdubs, their songs capture the energy, authenticity and grit of that early 70s sweet spot in recording history.
