Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
Already having put in years of groundwork as hard-working musical vagabonds and seemingly always on the road, Norfolk’s finest Southern blues rockers Bad Touch are seemingly effortless in their cherry-picking classic material and making it their own.
Whilst their own compositions are beyond reproach, their cover of Kiki Dee’s ‘I’ve Got The Music In Me’ brought a new level of swagger and sexuality to the 70’s superhit and was huge fun.
Striking gold again, they’ve now turned their attention to Edwin Starr’s ‘Twenty-Five Miles’ and it’s a big, ballsy and soulful take that rivals the original for cool and verve.
With vocalist Stevie Westwood giving one of his best performances to date and the twin guitars of Rob Glendinning and Daniel Seekings absolutely on blazing form, this sees the birth of another stomping future live favourite.
Resistance is utterly futile and you just need to let this one seep into your soul.
