With the White Stripes, the Von Bondies and The libertines tearing up the charts with blues laiden punk rock - its good to hear a band that done it all years ago. Their albums have been few and far between due to an excessive lifestyle but when they do get the time they rip it up. Blastronaut has rock n roll swagger in abundance. The opening track the magnificent The Greatest man who ever walked the face of earth is a minute and a half of pure adrenaline held together with a superb riff. From there it just keeps ratching up the style and attitude never at the expensive of the tune - see the hip grinding chainsaw riff at the centre of Brontosaurus. this is the album for one of those parties you really should not have (you know the one where the TV meets the pavement) The lyrics are obviously in bad taste and the song subjects are complete nonsense - but if you want political thoughtful records buy the levellers or Radiohead. If you want hedmistic, guitar shape throwing goodness buy this. Proper Rock n Roll by a proper rock n roll band - everyone take note this is how it should be done!
