Hav­ing gen­er­ated good re­views and ac­claim through their first al­bum, Fi­nal Ap­proach To Home, Rosco and his band have reached ‘the dif­fi­cult sec­ond al­bum’ stage. But it’s any­thing but dif­fi­cult to lis­ten to. In fact, they all seem to be hav­ing a great time! There’s lots of en­ergy in this blues-rock collection of songs which were recorded at Ranscombe Ana­logue Stu­dios in Rochester, and it’s a fine ve­hi­cle to al­low Rosco to sing and play gui­tar in his own force­ful style. It’s very Amer­i­can in flavour and that’s a neat trick to pull off from this side of the pond! We par­tic­u­larly like the slide work on Whiskey Blues Good­night, which con­tains the lyric “Get it while you can” (which gives the al­bum its ti­tle). There are lots of mu­si­cal con­trasts too; it’s easy on the ear but never short of ex­cite­ment, of­fer­ing a great al­ter­na­tive to so much of to­day’s rock. The band is con­stantly work­ing the rock and blues clubs around the UK, with a few fes­ti­vals thrown in for good mea­sure, but they’re also tour­ing again soon to pro­mote this al­bum.
