Ad­mi­ral Sir Cloudes­ley Shov­ell

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. PAUL MOODY Lis­ten To: U Got Wot I Need | Tired’N’Wired | Hairy Brain Pt 2
