6/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 September 2011
What an odd career path Edgar 'Jones' Jones has had from The Stairs' marvellous '60s beat group racket to his excellent 'Soothing Music for Stray Cats' album to being hyped by Noel Gallagher and working with the Scouse mafia of McCulloch, Power and Mavers as well as that scraggy old mod-grandpops Paul 'Paul' Weller. Yet he's still no household name and by the sounds of this he won't be. Lord only knows what the beered up massive thought of this schizophrenic garage chaos when the normally Scouse fearing Gallagher invited them onto a late-period Oasis mega tour. It's scratchy lo-fi garage punk before it lurches violently into Otis Redding style soul on 'Stormy Weather' before launching back into Zeppelin style riff rock sounding as if Plant had gone mental and locked the lads in a metal tube to record their masterpiece. Jones is the king of these unbelievably authentic period pieces - you can almost smell Bob Harris preparing his whispered links during the 'hilariously' titled 'Big Fanny'.
