JAMIE THYER AND THE WORRIED MEN have… Played over 7000 gigs based on over 30 years hard playing… Been given the nod of approval by and shared the bill with many established and influential artistes… Toured the UK and Europe non-stop… Performed at countless festivals… And these road tested veterans have only just begun!
In the winter months of 1994, guitarist JAMIE THYER took time out from playing on demonstrations for Marshall amplification and Rotosound strings. He began writing and rehearsing with a rhythm section under the ironic name of THE WORRIED MEN. Initially, they considered that the originality of their style and direction would place them on the outer peripheries of fashion motivated rock music, yet, because of their ability to entertain and not merely play, enthusiastic audiences, promoters and even record companies swiftly disproved this!
Their live album ‘Fear and Loathing at the Wünder Bar’ was recommended by Venue and AWOL magazines, and despite a lack of formal promotion, their local gigs attracted an avalanche of press and an ever-growing mailing list. As a direct result of this, THE WORRIED MEN embarked on a relentless succession of nationwide dates, averaging around four or five gigs per week at such venues as Nottingham Rock City, London’s famous Marquee Club etc, alongside artists like Robin Trower, Chicken Shack, Wilko Johnson, Robert Cray, Jefferson Starship, besides many others – always to an overwhelming reception. (Partly due to the practice of constantly adding to their repertoire, thereby ensuing no two shows are the same). It seemed as though a tired and jaded rock scene needed their fresh approach!
