Bro­ken ma­chine Wil­son Broth­ers Mu­sic ✪✪✪✪ ✪

First track on Wil­son’s de­but al­bum hits you with a Voodoo Chile-style gui­tar fest show­ing the Lincolnshire gui­tarist’s very tasty chops against an in­sis­tent Delta blues beat. The riffy World’s Gone Crazy takes us into rock-pop ter­ri­tory, while Peace And Love is an SRV-type Texas shuf­fle; but there’s more go­ing on, with tough vo­cals and har­monies, plus meaty gui­tar re­sponses (nice James Bond end­ing chord, too!). The ti­tle track is al­most grungy with, again, lots of riffs, vo­cal har­monies, catchy fills and a cool wah-wah-fuzz solo. No duff tracks and the fi­nal bal­lad Hold­ing Hands is a great sign-off to a fine de­but. This is not straight blues but catchy Bri­tish rock, and while never de­riv­a­tive is in­fused with dol­lops of Seat­tle, Texas, Chicago, Mis­sis­sippi, and even a bit of Belfast (Words Of A Woman). Fab­u­lous play­ing and tones, too. What’s not to like?
