Three Kings High

These guys have identified themselves as Northern Soul and punk fans and the energy of both comes blazing through here, particularly on songs such as ‘Blood Is Blue’. It is a creation which shimmers with excitement and temptation. If one were to close one’s eyes when one has this disc on, one is in a sweaty little basement club, surrounded by beer and fag fumes. If you listen a few times and then chisel away a few of these rough edges, you’ll find spots of gold lying underneath. Maybe a riff on one track, or a bit of atonal vocals on another, something here is sure to snag in the earlobe. These guys actually sound as though they are having a good time.
As Queen might have out it, they want it all and they want it now. And who are we to deny them?
