They've been laying low for a number of years, this album was released in '97. A friend of mine peeped me into the disc back in 2002ish and I picked it up shortly thereafter. It's a party. A tragic, grime infested party of the finest class. Solid rock and roll goes jazzy and dabbles hardcore. Think Zappas Hot Rats meets Blood For Blood. If you can't picture that, just take my word... I just pulled this out yesterday and have not been able to stop listening to it. BOOM SWAGGER BOOM, with the chickies in the back drop, ... the album kicks out with DANCE HALL MUSIC, dipping right into the organ grooves, which are both dark and poppy at the same time. This album has a little bit of everything that is good in sleazy rock and roll, and is a definate keeper in my collection. Maybe we'll be hearing some more from these cats soon, it's a good time to check 'em out I 'd say.
Raw, honest and ahead of it's own time, the band's cohesiveness and simplicity bisects subgeneres respectfully.
Moody's vocals are if anything honest and his songwriting much like the instrumentation remains haunting and seductive.
Having produced a dark, melodic and lyrically mature sound, the foundation of the five and later (with Leslie Hardy) 6 piece ensemble was laid to rest with the deliciously flawed RIP live recording from Seattle in 2003. Some recent tour activity has seen sold out venues and desperate fan requests for new recordings. The ulitmate status of this beloved tour de force remains to be seen.
