Everyone loves a bit of Oxbow don't they? Getting your head rammed into a crotch and a mic stand in your stomach? Good times, good times. Recently they've been doing some acoustic shows as the Oxbow Duo and although this Lover Ungrateful 7" is billed as a full Oxbow release it's more in that sort of vein. The lack of crushing riffs doesn't lower the intensity one bit and Eugene Robinson can go on proving that he should really have lived in the 1920s and been the most mental bluesman of all time.. The talk in the office is that it sounds a bit like Mule unplugged or something, not that surprising since they come from a similar sort of lineage. 'Frankly Frank' is a reinterpritaion of a track from their last super excellent LP The Narcotic Story and 'Stallkicker', the lead track, is from the even bettererer An Evil Heat. Righteous kill!
