The latest track to surface – HUNTER – is a brooding combination of electronic and instrumental experimentalism that drifts menacingly around the room, riven through with cracked bells flatly pealing in alarm.

From the EP Kiss That Wealth Goodbye – the second of the four tracks – Place Your Bets.
exmagician pour smoky layers through the minimal use of instrumentation. Yet, are able to take the audience on an entrancing trip around the mind as they utilise extensive echo, reverb and delay giving the guitar a feeling that it is winding around itself. The open spaces of the percussion gives Place Your Bets its airy feel as the blurred vocal gently drifts around the ears.
Colt 66 from Belfast in Northern Ireland and Bristol in England is the scowling-rock collaboration between Dan Moxham and Wild Blue Rivers.
The laconic tracks by Colt 66 shorn of flummery bristle around the room in bad-temper brushing the audience into cowering in the corner as the acerbic lyric seethes of frustration. Braving the fulminations the audience finds this is a sound full of foot-steps to follow and soon the darts become welcome scars to take the listener on a rock-a-billy derived journey, which finds the body happily stepping round the open spaces. Think – The Cramps without Poison Ivy and you are in the ball-park of Colt 66.
The out-put of Colt 66 for its very bareness invites the mind to dwell on the compositions and very soon finds that far from being a sound of hostility they quickly become the sort of friends that you can’t believe you haven’t known all your life as they seem to understand you so well.
A début eponymous LP appeared in the latter half of last year and is well worth grabbing hold of along with a new pair of ботинки на манной каше. I am already looking forward to the follow-up.
