"Ian's soulful vocals, authentic phrasing and effective harp playing are the first thing that impress about this act. But on closer listening we disciver the tight (rhythmically and sonically) playing of James. His style is a lesson in economy of playing and his use of vibrato, which could be a distracton in the hands of a lesser guitarist, brings us memories of those old Excello recordingsof the 1950's. Anthony ofers a wonderful free time to the groove, and his use of the 'djembe' brings a marvellously different perspective to the groove. Rather than anchor the band, his percussion-like playing, rather than strict drumming allows for some excellent interplay......." ~John Durr, Black Market Music
