Strong follow up to their debut album.

In the past, a pearl handled revolver might have been handed to a scoundrel or bankrupt, with an exhortation to "do the decent thing". Left with this pearl handled revolver, that fella might emerge in a light sweat, full of energy and buzzing with schemes of starting a band.

We liked their debut, ‘Colossus'. Nothing is different this time around. The band believe that they have delivered more of their psychedelic live show this time and whilst that isn't very apparent, their love of the Animals, Purple and Cream certainly is. By rolling the electric joanna right to the front of their sound, they get the chance to do other things with it. Which is why ‘Do It Again' makes like Wolfmother in that 60's roughed-up model, but then pushes a six string solo with Pistols whip, and finally a fuzzy organ piece that Alan Price might coo over. And their laidback side is beautifully investigated in the vibe that ‘Blind' conflates into a positively Fun Loving Criminals feel; the riffs do smoulder, the organ simmers, but all is sultry and sexy, Lee Vernon leading us through stories of delightful danger. Ideal.

When they shake themselves, though, their energy can't be contained, twitching and itching, a jerking, unsettling thing that brings to mind those great balls of fire Clutch. ‘You Got It Wrong' has that prophet shouting in the wilderness and organ blasts of ‘Jam Room' but then sashays funkily down the catwalk as a bass solo struts by and the rough riff trots along behind. A Bluesy gumbo which is marinaded in paranoia and sourmash whiskey.

Vernon alternates between bellowing power and Waitsy confession, Andy Paris' solos never overplay or overbalance and Simon Rinaldo; well, his cheesy organ is welcome at the best parties. Can never resist that line.

What a fabulous hour, what a stunning set, what a brilliant band. This revolver is cocked and loaded. Squeeze the trigger.
