Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
A constantly travelling troubadour, Mike Ross has built up the reputation as a purveyor of wonderfully involving storytelling, his stripped back sound on recent tours a voice of quiet reflection that managed to transport the listener to far flung vistas.
With this new single though, it’s time to get down and dirty, the earthy rawness replaced by big, ballsy riffing that is like being attached to ten thousand volts.
With elements of 70’s classic hard rock but spun with a new edge, this is a snakehipped charmer that is slinky and self assured, the smell of blood, dust and beer seeping through it’s every note.
With its great climbing feel and biker barroom honesty, this is a new anthem that should be played loud.
