Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Formed in 1991, The Hoax completed their farewell tour in 1999, leaving behind this souvenir, recorded with portable equipment in tow. The final studio album (Humdinger) was their best, and this last live bow finds them in a similarly raucous and belligerent mood. The tapes have harnessed the full crunch of the band's speaker-blowing, ear-bleeding efforts, Hugh Coltman's soulful vocals rising forcefully from the middle of Jesse Davey and Jon Amor's twin-guitar assault. Crowd whoops and screams are left intact, compounding the sweaty atmosphere. Stevie Ray Vaughan is probably the band's guiding light, informing the Hoax tendency to funk up the blues, especially on numbers like "Driving Blind", where they might just about appeal to the acid jazz market. The Hoax also poke around amongst old roots, mashing up Slim Harpo's Baby Scratch My Back and stomping all over Willie Dixon's "I Want To Be Loved". One of their own best songs, "Bones", closes the album (and their career) with an extended guitar duel of almighty proportions, the resultant crowd ecstasy almost without end. --Martin Longley
