KEEP IT GREASY! RISE ABOVE, OUT NOW Grease-rock masterclass from Hastings power trio.
Nobody could accuse this trio of not knowing their history. Named after a 17th- century naval commander, they’ve been plundering obscure sludge-rock riffs (Buffalo, Budgie, Sir Lord Baltimore) since 2012 debut Don’t Hear It… Fear It!. Their third LP is the grimiest – and grooviest – yet. Tired’N’Wired is a blistering headbang boogie which finds singer-guitarist Johnny Gorilla shredding like a man lost in his own personal Groundhog(s) Day, while U Got Wot I Need is a Slade and Motörhead hybrid. Add some acid-rock wig-outs (Hairy Brain Pt 2), garage grunge (I’m Movin’), plus the sound of someone burping, and the result is grot-rock heaven.
