6/10 Brian Staff review, 23 May 2014

I'll be honest, I've never been much of a fan of Southern American-sounding music, be it the old delta country blues shit, Springsteen at his most chest-beating.....um...my Grandad's old country tapes poorly ripped from a de-tuned Radio 2 in the 70's and 80's (he was a bit deaf - go figure). I think Lee Bains and his tediously named Glory Fires, however, succeed in quietly impressing this bemused man in Leeds with their blisteringly energised take on this well-worn sound. They have that raucous Jon Spencer/early Dirtbombs energy but overall I feel like I'm in a bad American meat-market bar, walls loaded with General Lee flags, mounted stag heads and Route 66 road signs.

Around 3 songs in I'm battling unwanted images of Kula Shaker doing 'Hush' out of my mind with little success. So to cap: brilliantly played and full-throttle bar blues rock with a fuzzy edge but it's still too "trad-yank" for these ears. If you like that sort of thing you'll no doubt adore this.
