The Oxford English Dictionary only gives the sexual definition, but they do say it is meant to stimulate excitement ...

The Oxford English Dictionary only gives the sexual definition, but they do say it is meant to stimulate excitement. The name is also possibly a rather simplistic attempt to stimulate talk and therefore sales – "ooh, how naughty", etc. It does stimulate excitement, but then so does 'Loose Women', doesn't mean they're any good.

Formed by vocalist Azriel St Michael, drummer Byron Black (those are great names!) from Jezebel's Kiss and Hydrogen guitarist/producer Jeff Westlake, they try to have their cake and eat it by mixing Classic and Modern. What they actually manage to do is ally stupendous, catchy choruses to grimy, chunky riffs. They begin with some sexual sounds, just to seal that lack of inspiration; grime then wins out on 'This Ain't Paradise'. Like the sun attempting to break through the middle, there is a more danceable feel to 'Sin' (hips may even be shaken among it's insolence) whilst 'Working It Out' has the audacity to favour a chorus so soft it's akin to the Pop like Jellyfish.

The "put the two together and what have you got?" approach may pall over eleven tracks, but then they get it right, as on 'Steeple' when a strange 1960s feel wanders in and the chorus swells to fill the space of two songs; it happens infrequently but it's always welcome. And none more so than the walking Metallic-like riffing of 'Heaven's Burning Down Tonight' with added sing-along opportunity. There is something to build on here be it either the Metal or melody. At the moment, it's a bit "cor, look at the size of that chorus, ding dong, have a butchers at the heft of that guitar... is that all you've got?" Yep.
