- real raw vibe
- included the bands mega smash; 'everything 'bout you'
- alledgely the biggest selling ep in the world?
- couple of songs sound a little early 90's but for the most part it stands up well.
Funky fresh country club is sensational....
Across 6 tracks you get a good taste of what this band sounds like and their style is great rock, but very much tongue in cheek. The album opener, `Madman' starts off with theme park sound effects, before the main riff kicks in and the EP is started off with a jolt. `Whiplash Liquor' is a particular favourite of mine and I love the vocals on this track. They are so `of their time`, but suit the song perfectly. The chorus can't help but make you sing along with gusto. The most well known track has to be `Everything about You' which was all over MTV and VH1 when it was released. It has a gentle start and is the most accessible for non-rock fans, it also happens to be a top tune. The album closes with a short 26 second track called `Heavy Metal' which is essentially a quick thrash and scream and then it's over. The perfect way to end this selection of songs and I used to love playing this on repeat as I sat in the garden. All in all this is a great little EP of rock tracks from this band and whilst it does sound dated at times, it is such a great sound that you can't help but still enjoy it.

The original version of Madman.
A cover of Sweet Leaf.
This is a great album. If you liked America's Least Wanted, you will love this. Too Bad is arguably their best song. It has the same attitude and production as America's, but it is still a bit more raw. Amazing, amazing guitar and vocal leads, and the usual funk that is UKJ. This has the originals of Everything About You and Madman, the first lacking the intro, and cutting right to the chase, and the latter somewhat different lyrically.
I cant stress it enough.. Too Bad and Whiplash Liquore are worth the cost of this EP by themselves. Funky Fresh Country Club/Sweet Leaf are great, and Heavy Metal is a really great way to finish this album, hehe.

HAha just kidding! I was there when this came out, and it was great! In the video on Mtv they flew a blow-up sex doll filled with helium on the beach like a kite. Read morePublished on April 20, 2007 by DURGAZ
What a difference a year can make. If this had been released in 1990 instead of 1991, the band would have had full poodle perms, spandex and would have worshipped at the altar of... Read morePublished on August 21, 2006 by Patrick Stott
