The English rock’n’blues quartet King Ziggy released the single Big Dog on the 14th.

Delta blues combines with pulsing beat to deliver a track, in Big Dog, that fills the room with soaring riffs and dancing feet.

The gravelly vocal and guitars are transposed with bouncing throaty bass and fiery percussion allowing King Ziggy to deliver a song that is of deep texture and one that demands immediate replay.

Just about eighteen months in to existence, this is an outfit who I expect to hear much more of at ever larger stages in short order and I look forward to following their progress.

The latest song to surface, the fifth of the eight on the album, Evil Game opens with a bass guitar dragging its strings across the studio floor and how could I not be enamoured?

A just under three three minutes track of dirty blues in which the listener can sense it is cleaning the speakers of any internal dust as the scratchy composition grabs hold of a bottle of whisky and proceeds to strew sawdust through room.

With much in the catalogue Strange Majik never lets down the listener as the scruffy blues scours across the room like a vole seeking a burrow as the skittish combinations of oil soaked rags and curling guitars scatter through the ears lifting the legs in to dance mode.




With many a selection of songs to choose from I highlight from the eleven track, just under three quarters, of an hour album Raised On Rock ‘N’ Roll (available on bandcamp) that came out last year which does exactly as it promises on the the tin. Vintage dirty blues rock ‘n’ roll tumbles out of the speakers and the listener can feel a carpeting of sawdust developing under their feet.

Best heard in frayed jeans with a bourbon to hand – my selection of the catalogue is Cocaine Kisses – if you aren’t jiving along at some point – there is a distinct possibility you are reading the wrong music review site and I serve this as an introduction of a project I look forward to coming back to again in the near future.
