“Two Lifts and a Carton of Piss” is a solid wall of guitar and a driving rhythmic undertow. Again, simple and effective equals simply effective. Flip it over and the title track is more of the same, with some real swing in the feel and takes on a Motorhead sound. Where “Two Lifts…” employs a drop-out to mix things up, the concise “Jimmy Neville” changes tempo sharply before slamming to a stop.

Dr Rock's production is in the red in every sense of the term. It's on Bandcamp so you can try before you buy. Swashbuckling Hobo releases tend to sell fast so best not delay.
