A strapping, intense 25-year-old, over the past couple of years Jon 'Reverend' McClure has established himself as the don of the Sheffield music scene. Before he'd even signed a record deal he was selling-out thousand-plus capacity venues in his home city, curating his night Reverend Sound system and collaborating, inspiring and conspiring with the Steel City's key guitar slinging players. And now he's ready to unleash his debut album. 12 tracks. Wall of Sound.

From the title track and the early knowledge of hard truth imparted on the "State of Things", to the salacious viewings of "What the Milkman Saw" and the painful knowledge that we could have been "Heavyweight Champions of The World". We are presented with a numbing list of might have beens, and ought to have beens, each one walked down that long dark alley of reality and ganged up on by a bunch of brutal facts.
But, underneath it all you feel the rhythmic drum and base stumble of youth tugging at your hand and telling you to take a chance, shake off the dust and shamble Rasta tumble half step knees high head back rumble in to the dance and live again! Sweet melodious retribution on the State of Things that declines to let any one live their own lives, but demands that they can only live through someone or something else.
Everybody get up and dance your own dance!
