The Quick & The Dead are best played with a whisky ginger to hand as they deliver their blend of moreish stretched guitar which seems to have strings wound out to the floor – allowing the tracks to meander into spaces unexpected, whilst a stressed bass pings like a table tennis-ball on the table from which a percussion provides the platform for the vocal to add the warmth.

As if that was not enough – they are also minded to sometime bring in slide to the mix – as evidenced in the third of the fourteen tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) – Gone – which for its scuttling tempo makes this my pick of the release – what more does music ever need?
