The retrospective concentrate of the tracks lifts the listener immediately to south coast summer beaches of England in the ’60s with scooters, parkas and dark sunglasses spoiling for a rumble with rockers.

Taught drumskin allows percussion to ping across the room like a dart, the bubbling bass gives the countenance of an ill-temper brewing just under the surface while compacted guitar occasionally stretches the strings as though a snarling dog looking to slip the leash with the laid-back vocal which reverberates in to an elongated sneer gives the music an unexpected, though goes some way in identifying the source of the name of the band, beatnik tincture.

A ten track album which contains numerous highlights – with Never On My Mind – the third song – being my pick of the release. A song which pulls to memory something else, which I can’t quite bring to the forefront of my mind to name, though you may well recall immediately.
