As soon as Terence Warville saw the Sex Pistols perform on TV way back when, he knew that his calling in life was to sling a guitar around his neck and crunch out some big tunes through a six-foot-tall amplifier.
He recorded his first album with Stimulator (signed to Geffen), the band he and Billy Morrison of Camp Freddy/Cult/Billy Idol/Royal Machines formed, and went on to tour with Motorhead, Anthrax, Neurotic Outsiders and Love/Hate, ‘Playing live and loud is what it’s all about!’ he says.
It was after performing in front of three thousand Motorhead fans that Stimulator were paid one of their biggest compliments (sort of) by Lemmy, who told them the fans must have liked them as they didn’t bottle and beer-can them off stage. Lemmy remained a fan of Billy and Terence and would often go to see Stimulator play.
As for Slam Cartel, Terence says, ”Live, we’re great aurally and visually and there’s no shortage of technical ability to us, the songs are strong and a connection with a piece of music or song that relates to someone’s personal life experience is the goal and best thing we can achieve for our fans and followers, I don’t think that we choose the music we like, I think it’s just something that connects us to something good inside for whatever reason, We have great capabilities in this new Slam Cartel line up”.
After writing the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Handful of Dreams’ and successfully releasing it independently, Terence played it and toured it hard gathering followers around the World, He says ” a great experience and I wouldn’t change a thing however difficult things can get sometimes in life, Slam Cartel have had a couple of line up changes and who we have now in Slam Cartel are perfect, It has to be right and with the commitment, mindset and faith needed, I created Slam Cartel and will do whatever it takes to keep on keeping on, I live and breathe Slam Cartel, I created it”
He went on to say “Desire is something intangible, a desire so deep it fills and drives band members to go to the lengths they need to go to, to succeed in what they love doing; being part of agroup. In the next year or so, along with releasing our AA side single ‘Vanishing Worlds/Hypnotised’, we will start work on our EP, I’d like to continue seeing that people are enjoying what we do, and like us enough for us to carry on doing this great journey for a lot longer.’
