It was great to see David Burke’s review of our self-titled album in the latest issue of R2 Rock’n’Reel Magazine.
They said, “Davie Duncan’s vocals are both tough and tender, and Laurie Cuffe’s lead guitar lines mostly ardent, occasionally angular (especially when he throws angular Marc Ribot shapes on “Hey Véloniño!”). The whole thing is anchored beautifully by the savvy rhythm section of Kenny McLellan on second guitar and Shug Jamieson’s big bass.”
They said, “this collection transported me to a different time and place (in this instance mid-50’s USA) […] so when Véloniños tell me ‘I’m an Alabama man, born and bred’ I’m happy to go along with it, on the condition they keep on singing it at me.”
We’re so happy to see that our song “Alabamaman” has been added to BBC Radio Scotland’s playlist!
