Not to be confused with the(apparently)short-lived soulsters of a few years ago, or the anarcho-punk protest group of the 60's/70's this is actually a bonafide "supergroup" of various talents such as guitar legend Chris Spedding, Glen Matlock - bass, ex-Pretenders' Martin Chambers on drums, Stephen W Parsons aka Snips on vocals (must admit I've never heard of him but apparently he is a film composer and was vocalist of "legendary" Seventies band Sharks - no disrespect intended) and introducing hot new guitar talent Sixteen.
And they produce an entertaining blend of rockabilly boogie style, old fashioned, rock n roll with a modern slant, mixed with a couple of slower country tinged tracks. On this album the band sound like a more "adult" Kings of Leon or a more up to date and heavier sounding Stray Cats. A website I've read, describing their live show, said "The band draw on the Spirit of '69 to bring the raw power and spirit of that golden age of music into a contemporary setting - but will be a treat for all fans of Fifties and Sixties culture, as well as the classic rock n roll, beat, americana, rockabilly, psychedelic rock and surf musical genres to name but a few." So allowing for an element of hyperbole here, that's just about all the bases covered then.
But seriously, this is an album that entertains and gets the toes tapping and is over all too soon. A bit of a hidden gem really.
