Twenty years before he was jailed for setting fire to his girlfriends clothes (presumably not while she was still wearing them) Marion singer Jamie Harding and his merry troupe had a hit with this their debut album. It's full of aggressive Brit pop that sits somewhere between Suede and Manic Street Preachers. They have a still devoted following who presumably are ready to lap this up.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th November 2016
Why didn't this band make it further than they did? It's the fact they were on the scene at a bad time, but don't let this stop you from getting this album.
The lead singer seriously sounds like a cross between Bono of U2 and the lead singer of The Cult. The songs at times are poppy, happy, dark, and just straight rock. "This World and Body" is a must have for any collection, if not solely for the sheer genius but the Bowie glam and punch that, on that merit alone, instantaneously deserves a place.
