4.0 out of 5 stars More a 3.5 19 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Claims to be "swamp beat boogie" in the booklet/insert which should be a lot more mysterious and interesting, instead it's jaunty rock n roll & country influanced influenced music performed by a band that sound like they'll enjoying themselves playing together. They sound like a fun local/bar band that'll be a laugh on a night out on a lot of it.

Some of the tracks are spoiled by having too much 80s polish/smoothness and their best bits being done better by other people a long time before. They occasionally make Cajin fiddle sound average.

Treat me Like A Dog has some good moments, but all stolen from early rock n roll/country/blues.

Their French/part French songs are fun (especially Les Flames d'Enfers.)
C'est La Vie starts off strong, Parisian and devilish but needs to be stronger and darker (and not have moments that sound like part of Shooting Stars theme tune). Great fiddling though and the French bits are great.

Hand To Hand Guitar is more modern rock, (well, modern for 1989). Sounds great with some epic guitar playing. Not sure about the US 80s macho fighter & Rambo referencing lyrics but seing he's singing about protecting his homeland with hand to hand guitar fighting is probly mocking that attitude.

All Wound Up is tounge in cheek countrified rock n roll about the joys of boogieing with "the boys and the girls til dawn" - perfect for dancing.

The two best tracks that really work and becomes something more are She's In The Mood, (a slow romantic song, that manages not to be slushy & celebrate a woman and her sensuality/sexuality without being sexist.) ,and their Goffin & King cover Another Night With The Boys - has that perfect soft 80s radio style cod 50s/60s sound, verging on pastiche but saved by being so right and the genuine soul passion in the vocals.
It's more a 3.5 but you can't give half points here so it's a 4
