Hailed, in one weekly music bible, as 'a near perfect slice of good time high energy punk', Another Kind Of Blues was the first of twenty-six official albums, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. Their most recent, Ziezo, was released in 2016.
"My memory's never been that good, so I thought it'd be easier to memorise the order albums came in."
But he was determined to make it to Ziezo:
"I was determined. I'd get sick, and think I'd better start taking it easy, but I was determined. And there's probably as many unofficial albums as there are official."
'An interesting mix of styles with somewhat punk lyrics and a definite heavy metal influence on guitar.
'They had a large following in the room and went down well with the local crowd.'
'A swift slap of alternative rock smothered in dark riffs and a theatrical rawness. Eerie guitars jaggedly slice and shred through the track with relentless stamina while a punchy rhythm creates a buoyant meaty foundation for them to ricochet and soar off.
'The track is a robust brawny effort from 40 Shillings on the Drum with a substantial rock backbone that will have a mosh pit going wild .. '
