8/10 Brian Staff review, 07 March 2014

Now I may have mentioned this in a previous review of these beloved sleazy Londoners since their re-awakening years ago, but my favourite t-shirt - one which if I still possessed - would be emblazoned proudly in a frame above my fireplace - sported GALLON DRUNK in large upper-case block font and had below a grainy B&W piccie of a sweet old nun clutching a cross and maybe some rosary beads. It was worn to death and the juxtaposition of innocent archival imagery and threatening no-nonsense hardcore text kind of reached inside me and made me feel all powerful. Indestructible almost. No-one is gonna mess with a guy wearing such a t-shirt I confidently thought.

Gallon Drunk still sound amazing - a sleazy soulful scrawly shimmering mess forged from blues, stax soul, no-wave and the edges of noise rock…..Sounds reminiscent of The Birthday Party, John Spencer Blues Explosion, Tindersticks, Loop, Afghan Whigs and one-time member Max Decharne’s wonderful Flaming Stars still power the hard rocking, sultry  beast here. They were always an incendiary live act - a sweat-drenched band of men who your mother would veer across the street to avoid and although less lairy and more stately looking these days, the current incarnation still kick out a varied collection of swaggering dirty distorto-blues and ruffneck cerebral spaced-out brooding punk.

Never could be more valid in this over-saturated and baffling musical climate, the need for our “real” bands of yore is increasing every single day. No one will give a damn about Disclosure or Temples in ten years time. Quarter of a century on GD are still a fierce, formidable and muscular force with thrilling tunes to boot. Thank God.
