Formerly of The Hoax, Jon Amor has now gone back to his blues roots for this debut album from his new outfit, which sees them looking to Muddy Waters through a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion filter. And it makes for some mighty fine listening as the band pound through a set of fiery and explosive nu-blues.
It sees him linking up with the Doherty brothers - Chris (on bass) and Dave ( on guitar) - along with drummer Simon Small. They've been working with Mr. Amor for a while now, while he's been doing his solo thing, but they do seem to have a knack for blues-rock, as you would think they'd been doing this all their lives. They lock into a mean and nasty groove, give it a shake around the neck, then never let go from the beginning to the end of the record.
It's generally an aggressive and muscular take on the blues, with the emphasis on raw and shredding guitar solos. Now that's something that might put off folks who put the blues first, but if you come from a rock background (hello, me), then this will be to your liking. The whole record was put together in a week, and it has that live feel about it, especially on numbers like 'Holy Water', 'Juggernaut' and the purer blues of 'When The Times Come'. (Mr. H)
