Hellooooooo Kory Clarke! Welcome back, we've missed you. As one of the 3 people who bought everything Warrior Soul ever released and who religiously plays his vinyl copy of "God, Drugs & The New Republic" every month without fail, I can safely say that you, the record buying public, suck. Big time. Kory should be the one living in fantasy land, not the merkhead Axl. But did you buy his records? No. Bandits.

Now here he is, sixteen years on from that glorious debut, singing with a bar band punching way above their weight. Don't get me wrong, this is a thoroughly enjoyable album, glorying in a world of sleaze little seen since the late eighties. Close in spirit to the punky pop metal of "Salutations From The Ghetto Nation", it's a rabble rousing set of near biker rock. But Kory has done better. And I'm sure he knows it.

But sometimes you can only rail against injustice for so long. Sometimes you just need to kick out the jams. That's what's happening here, nothing more, nothing less. The band kicks hard, Kory howls like only he can, but don't come here looking for answers.

If Dirty Rig sound like 'all the same rubbish you get from modern rock bands' today, then I'd like to be introduced to some of those bands, because, quite frankly, this is a dozen times more life-affirming than anything by The Killers and, er, all those others, currently cluttering up the album charts and garnering all sorts of meaningless accolades. This is fist-pumping, beer-chugging bar-room rock fronted by erst-while Warrior Soul motormouth Kory Clarke that won't win any prizes for finesse but will make you want to dance like a loon in the basement of some dingy nightclub. Kory's voice has lost none of its Marlboro-parched magnetism and although some of the riffs are undeniably lumpen, tracks like 'Suck It', 'You're A Star' and the title track make you mighty glad he hasn't given up this rock n' roll lark just yet.

Kory Clarke has fads. On Monday he wants to be a political punk, the next day a 70's sleaze merchant. Wednesday he might dabble with arty fuzz and by Thursday he might like to try his hand at metal or psychedelic rock. This is Friday's record - a, what the hell, let's go down the pub with a bunch of barroom misfits with bad hair cuts and rock out on cheap riffs and Marlboro lined vocals.

Things start well the ballsy Suck It. This stylistically would have fitted on Warrior Soul's last full CD, And We Rock N Roll, or whatever it ended up being called - as I said, Kory has fads. This is the album's strong point - snarling vitriolic vocals with a grinding bass sound that Lemmy would be half envious of. Interestingly the album goes down hill from here, saved only by the quality of the group's it blatantly apes. Drunk Again is hewn from the Junkyard or Circus of Power school of Rock, and is passable as a result, and Dogs is an acidic Faster Pussycat style meaningless romp (or Iggy Pop ish if you were to be charitable). As the album proceeds the influences get less obvious and the quality deteriorates markedly. By the live cuts at the end it's just a homogeneous mess that you get the impression the band wrote without Kory around (Hey Kory,hic!, I'shh written a toon, hic! Can we play it...?).

It's not bad, though, overall and it has a pointless ballsy drunk charm that carries it through repeated listens. Worth buying for the first 5 tracks.

The background was this - In 2004 Dirty Rig were a bar band in NY, Kory Clarke the former front man of Warrior Soul & the Space Age Playboys was launching a solo career/band. After a solo gig he was approached by a member of Dirty Rig who gave him a copy of their first EP & told they needed a new singer. After a few listens Kory decided to give them a try and joined in early 2005. "Rock Did It" was released in 2006.

The positives were this - Dirty Rig were on a record label with a fairly big distribution deal who also re-released the five Warrior Soul studio albums. The band were also pretty tight with drummer Dave & guitarist Chas in particular standing out.

The negatives however were some of the material. Opener "Suck It" is ok, "Drunk Again" was actually written prior to Kory joining though he re-wrote the melody and lyrics improving both in the process. "Just A Star" sounds like half a song, a catchy half song granted, but kinda unfinished. "Dogs" is pretty awful yet for some reason was chosen to be made into a video. The title track is a little throwaway after a few listens.

"Hot Porno Star" rocks & shows how tight the band were, "Throwdown" is another pre-Kory song and is probably the best song on the CD. "Cities Scenes & Thieves" is an old Space Age Playboys (the band) tune, it kinda works here, however the live version performed by just Kory & Chas is far superior. "If You See Kaye" is just dire, it probably seemed a good idea at the time after a few drinks or snorts but on reflection it's the worst song in Korys entire career. Closer "Pennsyltucky" is another pre-Kory track and is brutal and a great closer. It also rocked live. The European version of the album contains a live bonus track, the shambolic "Hitchhiker".
