“Anti-Collision” is the 2nd and self produce Uncle Rust album. The band, a hard rock London based band consists of 3 members.
Frontman and guitarist Justin McConville writes his own songs and has recorded and produced the latest offering by Uncle Rust following the acclaim of the debut album “Six Years In The Desert”.

Justin has prolifically written music over the last 3 decades having performed across the UK and Europe in varying bands.
On drums, Justin’s brother Chris, a member of the UK Indy band The Bishops who released three albums , an EP and a dozen singles, notably there first album recorded by Liam Watson producer of amongst others the White Stripes took them across Europe, the UK and as far east as Japan.
Chris has been a member of Uncle Rust since the project began.
On Bass PJ Phillips. PJ has played with some of the biggest names in rock history including Rod Stewart, Mark Shaw and Curtis Steiger, a small glimpse at the calibre of the artists PJ has played with and likewise his own calibre is indeed that of a seasoned pro musician.

The 2nd album is available.
The new album is a melodic guitar based rock album inclusive of 10 original tracks. Justin states “The 10 tracks were demoed at the end of 2014 and were the first songs I had written and demoed since the recording of the previous (Six Years in the Desert) album . I had a total of about 40 tracks but some how these 10 songs came out like an album. I worked on the demo’s and they took a life and shape of their own. It’s my first attempt at recording and producing an album completely on my own.
The album was recorded between Survival rehearsal studios in North Acton in London and Justin’s studio flat in East London.
The band are currently negotiating a UK tour and have two upcoming London shows
