'Triple Distilled' sounds far too much like early Jam for it to be ever considered a 5-star classic, but it has enough original raucous inclination and fraught cohesion to be judged favourably in its own right.
'Lost Without My Dignity' is the standout song; dipping soulfulness accompanied by twanging Fripp-style guitar, while the fearsome opener 'Glad I'm Not Young' kicks the set off in rampant fashion: strident garage lyrics harnessed to tight, crashing backing-riffs.

Thematically, 'TD' is concerned with the Great Rock 'n' Roll Dream, arrived at via Townshend, The Kinks, Crimson and our old Mr Influential himself - Paul Weller. There's nothing wrong with pulling influences as long as they're of a quality - a lot of the modern lovers boast fab record collections only to miss the point completely, and sometimes even misinterpret their own thinking.
You can listen to every great song ever recorded (and not even I'VE done that!), but it doesn't mean you've got even one in you. Day's ok on that score. He's not hiding anything - even an occasional Paul Jones impression - his stuff's on his cuffs. 'TD' has a decent percentage of winners despite the over-reverential obviousness of a cut or two.

The eternal trinity of sex, drugs and raunch 'n' roll will always be of interest to Joe Public, but stretching that over a whole album is perilous. That Day avoids the pitfall shows an understanding uniqueness that squeezes 'Triple Distilled' into the pros - leaving unabashed garbage like The Truth well in the cons.
Day even does a song lambasting the ludicrous smoking ban recently forced upon the already (some would say deservedly) long-suffering, apathetic Brits; hey, he's a man of the people as well...
Maybe he's a mod....(laughs).

Enough of the waffling, just buy it and the watch out for The Gaolers on tour. Some great tracks, smart lyrics with catchy choruses and great garage rock. Listening to this, or any other Graham Day album you have to ask yourself 'why are these guys not famous?'

The legend that is Graham Day continues apace with this fantastic slab of garage rock par excellence. If you like your music down and dirty, with a dollop of melody and soul then check out this CD and, indeed, all of Mr Day's back catalogue. He is truly a musical genius whose talent has been sadly ignored by the mainstream. It should be noted that the CD contains 13 songs, rather than the 12 listed. Track thirteen, 'The Most Expensive Sleep' is actually the standout track of the CD - pure adrenalin, knees a trembling, hips a shaking garage rock'n'roll - but played with a complete punk attitude. Mr Day, we salute you and may your talent eventually find its reward in rock'n'roll heaven.

If you listened to "Triple Distilled" back to back with "Soundtrack to The Daily Grind", the previous album, you'd struggle to tell where one ended and the other began. But that isn't necessarily a criticism - like its predecessor, TD is chockfull of great, raucous, garage classics-in-the-making, and again very close to Day's Prisoners songbook.

I'd agree with a previous reviewer that "Lost Without My Dignity" is the stand-out track, with simply one of the most amazing intros (and guitar parts generally) I've heard in quite a while.

I think the lyrics on this album are perhaps a bit more diverse, with everything from the smoker's lament about the smoking ban ("Wanna smoke"), to the tongue-in-cheek and self-explanatory "Glad I'm Not Young". Funny thing is, for a few moments listening to this album, I thought I was.

Graham Day -- Rock Icon? 4 Feb 2010
By Bob K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this album after hearing "Something About You Girl" on the radio and the band's Myspace page. It's got a great melody line, lyric, and a hook in the chorus that'll makes you want to hear it again and again. Listening to the album, I found twelve more songs as good as that one. These are thirteen great pop/rock compositions, enthusiastically performed in a frantic, raucus niteclub, style.

I am not familiar with Graham Day, but he's not a kid (see track 1 - "Glad I'm Not Young"). He must have some history in the rock world; the opening vocal lines of "Begging You" are iconic rock and roll. They could have been sung by Gene Vincent in the 50's, Roger Daltrey in the 60's, Iggy Pop in the 70's. I'm not saying this guy belongs in the pantheon of great rock and roll masters -- but I'm wondering why I never heard of him before. These songs are so strong they could have made two or three normal albums for a lesser talent. Here's the formula: dramatic, extended vocal lines, soaring harmonic choruses, wailing guitars, pounding drums and bass, delivered with punk exuberance by a veteran rock singer/songwriter at the top of his game and a tight back up band. Everything works; all the guitar accents and twists are perfect. Each song stands on it's own as an identifiable gem and I've decided on a different favorite after each play. "Pass That Whiskey" with Day on sitar and "Just a Song" provide brief respites from the grungy onslaught, but without slowing the pace. This is one fine rock and roll album.

One criticism: it's not a great production job. The grungy sound mix falls into muddiness on a good audio system. The CD sounded better on my computer speakers than on my hi-fi or even my car stereo. Probably good enough for mp3 though. This material deserved better. Don't let that dissuade you from giving this CD a good listening.
Graham Day Fan 7 Nov 2011

Mate you ain't heard of him cause you are probably from the states!, Graham Day is a cult figure in the music scene from The Prisoners,The Gift Horses,The Prime Movers, The Solar Flares to The Gaolers, he has a huge following and the guy is an absolute master, if you listened to his life's work, then you would know! The music scene has always been the best from Britain along with the fashion culture, which Europe steals a few months later, not having a dig mate, but that's how it is, listen to all his stuff before criticising-modsquaddie
