1 stars I expected so much more of this considering the rave review it received by Julian Cope in his 'Japrock Sampler' book. It's sheer drivel and very derivative, Americanised and unoriginal that you would be well advised to steer well clear of this abomination.

A horrible raw electric blues guitar is wrapped around the throat of an equally irritating and uncharismatic stoned vocalist by the name of Joey Smith who sounds like he's choking on a mouthful of marbles.

Next to 'Hairy Chapter' this is the poorest recording I've reviewed in the Archives. Straight rock 'n roll utilising regular guitar, bass, drums and vocals with no redeeming features at all. I can only recommend this to ardent American Blues fans, otherwise you'll just want to snap the disc in two. A dreadful album. One more for the bin dammit.
