Stunning, and not a little bit depraved. The Sensational Alex Harvey Band's second album, "Next", is a 7 song masterpiece of attitude, swaggering from the unhinged, chaotic blues of "Swampsnake" into the singalong scuzz of "Gang Bang" and imploding into the stoner drone of "Faith Healer" - and that's just side one. The flip side features the AC/DC-on-crank of "Giddy Up a Ding Dong", the truly weird "Vambo Marble Eye", and the three part 50's-ballad-to-prepunk-bamalama epic "Last of the Teenage Idols". And sitting amongst all this madness is an empathetic, unlikely version of Jacques Brel's cabaret classic "Next". And it all sounds as daisy fresh as it did thirty years ago. A perfect pick for your next party in honor of debauched, wayward intellectuals praying for apocalypse.
