The newly released LIVE CASSETTES EP conveys exactly what the band are all about: solid licks, strong vocals and honest lyrics. Track 1, Tonic Wine is an upbeat guitar-driven classic rock song which tells the story of lead singer, David Philliskirk, and his love for drinking Buckfast with his mates. Track 2 It's Nice is complimented by some exemplary guitar work by Robert Chirnside and bearing in mind this a live take plaudits go to drummer Ciaran Gallagher for holding the tempo up throughout. The final track Comedy Show has a slight air of melancholy with words & music. The song does indeed provide some variety in terms of style from the band and finishes with a strong melodic Zeppelin-esk guitar solo. Available from all streaming services now.
